My Life, My Words
Clean slate and all that... Change is the only constant in life. Nothing and no one lasts forever...
I have a tendency, it's almost comforting, to hold onto what and who I cherish. I revisit old photos and memories, keeping them in my thoughts and my heart, grasping to the worn thin hope that we will be reunited again. Needless to say, this has caused me much pain over the years. But keeping love alive in my thoughts and heart has also brought me much joy. To have known such a deep bond with someone or something is a gift.
Tears still flow over family pets who have long ago crossed the rainbow bridge and loved ones who are responsible for loud claps of thunder on a hot summer day. As a small child, I grew to love the magnificent displays during a rainstorm. "The angels are bowling," my grama would say... now she plays on their team! Every time I hear the rumbling of clouds, I send love to the heavens!
I have tried many ways to liberate myself from the endless circling of remembering, then the tears flow, and the heart breaks a little...
But when the heart breaks a little more, there is space to allow for more love to move in.
And another circle of remembering, then the smile grows, and the heart is a little fuller...
Whether it's relationships and love, careers or adventures, it's necessary to take another step on the path of life. Time to make new memories, some of which will become cherished and kept in my heart and mind for revisiting from time to time. So, I move forward knowing this is the way it is meant to be, because change is the only constant....
The old has moved on to make room for something new...
