Yes it sounds bizarre and just a little weird, but I am doing just that. Some time ago a girlfriend asked me to go to France with her, to stay with a friend of hers in the South of France, yes, yes. Free accommodation for 3 weeks....and we had talked about sightseeing and going to the vintage markets. But every time I thought of going I felt nothing, no excitement or exhilaration. And I knew it didn't feel right. My logic kept playing on my mind, that it is such a great opportunity, perhaps once in a life time. But I still wasn't feeling it.
My challenge was plucking up the courage to let her know. I had to be true to myself ...and her. I picked up the phone and after some conversation I told her I wasn't 'feeling France'.Her reply.....she wasn't feeling it either and didn't know how to tell me. What a relief! We both laughed and shared how we imagined waving each other off at the airport. The truth we shared can only make our friendship stronger.
Who knows why the feeling wasn't there, maybe we will find out down the track, perhaps we will never know and I'm ok with that. What I do know is how important it is to be true to my own heart. And that is worth celebrating!
