And I quietly smiled at my best friend. I silently thanked him for being there, without even knowing it. For laughing at the scenario and helping me to do the same. For clearing the energy in the room and in my heart, allowing it to be open to more. And I realized right then that a lot of the work I want to do in the future, for my future, because of my future…will find its way from my past. And that I should be forever grateful for that.
