I think the older I get the more I realize that I have issues. I know shocking right?! I do prefer however to refer to them as opportunities. They are opportunities for me to overcome them and be a better me. I also realize that no matter how independent I think I am, there are certain ‘gaps’ in my life that I just can’t bridge alone. There are gaps in my personality, gaps in my energy, gaps in my thinking, and gaps in my emotions. But I am also extremely blessed that I have a few people in my life that I know I can count on to stand in those gaps for me. If you have that one, two, or maybe three people in your life that you can call on any time in any situation and they will support you, shore you up, and do whatever it takes to help you bridge that gap, you know exactly what I am talking about.
In my experience, having that in your life is pretty rare. I think/hope that I am a ‘gap stander’ for some of the people in my life. I am so thankful for those people who stand in the gap for me!
