Moving on

13 Jul


Looking at the mirror I see myself as I am – vulnerable yet wanting to move on.

It was time to turn the page, letting go of all those things that weighed me down- the fear , the pain , the anger all yesterdays demons .

There’s a point till where a human heart can grieve and when you reach that point –bingo …you snap, and prepare to drive off, turn course to the place you are  supposed to be – wherever that may be.

All this while I was holding on  to something , someone with the fear of never being able to replace them, but now as I walk down the street looking at all the yellow leaves blowing in the wind, I stop to look at the trees. They still stand tall with new bright green leaves. That’s how life is – continuously renewing itself.

Letting go of the shackles that bind my feet making it heavy and difficult to walk, I rise , ceasing to mourn that could never be –making room for new happiness. I can’t give in to the  “what ifs” and the “what could have been’s”-  these only make the journey difficult.

Can’t say I enjoyed the way life effortlessly but forcibly made me swerve course without warning.  There is nothing left to hold on to anymore. Nothing lasts forever. At some point to counter the pain I began to make a list of the things that sustain me. At the other end of the room the  clock kept ticking , a gentle reminder that the only way to move is ’Forward’  to a  new life that beckons me.

So here I am enjoying the sunset of the situation and looking forward to a new sunrise
