Day 8



When I read the introduction I thought a lot of emotions would be coming to the surface but they aren´t. Last year was a big one with my divorce going through and the children and I having to move out of our house...it seems that I worked through my emotions in the process of sorting through our belongings, saying goodbye to our old life and dreams of staying in that house always and starting over in new surroundings. I cried a lot of tears and let it all out and now I recognise a shift that I wasn´t really aware of until now - I feel no bitterness, no regrets, no wish to complain about or relive anything in my past. The past has led me to this day.

Your post is so full of comfort and affirmation that the dark times, the times of sorrow and bitterness and regret will pass. That it is up to us to open the gate and in the innocence and wisdom of the young, step through it. Thank you! ♥

It's so important to know that the good AND bad have lead us to where we are.

What a beautiful awareness. I wonder what's just outside that gate?

and your perspective looking back on the year that is your past is great. it's true, our past is what leads us to where we are today.

I agree - we are made up of the sum total of all our experiences.
