Courage…. A word I wore around my neck for over two years, given to me by my bestie when I needed a little more of it. It’s a giving key- meant to be worn until you no longer need it or you recognize someone who could use it more and give it away. I saw my necklace sitting on my dresser while looking for my extra set of apartment keys to give to an acquaintance in need… And I realized I haven’t worn it in a while. It occurred to me it was time to pass it on and it was the perfect situation for it. I got a little emotional in letting it go but also because It was a visual reminder of where I was and where I am now. And my apartment keys… I mean, so many acquaintances (who are now friends) did the same for me a year ago. And while these awesome friends don’t need the favor in return, I welcome the chance to do it for someone else…and while we are technically acquaintances now, I’d say we are on our way to friendship.
