I enjoyed Wayne Dyer’s post today explaining that people cross your path for a specific act or scene in the play of your life. Some have brief roles; others have ongoing appearances; and still others have a main part.
But no matter how important someone is in Act One of your life, they may or may not be a part of Act Three. And no matter how small or large the part they play, each person contributes exactly what they’re meant to.
When we view past friendships or relationships through this lens, it becomes easier to accept the end of connections that we once cherished. We no longer feel the need to wring our hands and wonder what went wrong. We can feel gratitude for what we shared and what it meant to each of us, and we can move forward with our lives, opening up to new people and connections.
I encourage you to take a moment today to look back at the scenes of your life and feel deep appreciation for each person who crossed your stage and contributed to your experience. And when you’re finished, it’s “on with the play”…
