Today was a good day, but I am sad.
The last few years of my life were nothing short of amazing. I had the most phenomenal experiences, and though I’ve moved on to other chapters of my life, I still carry the memories of these of experiences with me. Now this is not a bad thing. As memories are treasures to be cherished forever, but in my case it is bad. Because of these memories, I’ve closed myself off to experiencing new things. I can’t let people in or experience certain things because it’s not the same as what I’m used to.
I came to the realization that there may be times you just have to let people and things go. Sometimes these are good people and good things.
It’s silly to think that things will be constant and that nothing will change. Letting go doesn’t mean that the memories will fade or that what I experienced wasn’t valid. Love is always valid. So is joy. I’m so fortunate to have been able to indulge in such genuine and abundant goodness. May my sadness pave the way for new found joy, and may that joy be a light to guide me on my new path. May my memories foster a new growth of goodness in me and the ability to pay that goodness forward.
I may be sad, but I’m still whole. Broken, but still blossoming. 💕
Love, light, and laughter,
