Running away doesn’t really work.

I should know; I tried.

But my past came along for the ride and continually intruded on my life.

Better to turn and face it than to try to outrun it.

And then, ever so slowly, weave the past into the present.

Accept and embrace it.

The tapestry is vibrant and beautiful.

    Past may be hurtful and may have given you wounds. But as Rumi said “Wound is the place from where the light enters you.” so always look forward to learning from the pain and move forward. You are a gifted writer and on a humanistic level I hope everything is alright at your end. 🙂

      Thank you for your insight. We attribute this line to Leonard Cohen: “There is a crack in everything; that’s how the light gets in.” Thank you for your encouragement. I have been writing in my mind for all my life and only started putting things on paper (or in the computer) ten years ago. It is freeing to get my writing out of my head!

        Yes writing is an emotional therapy for me as well. It calms the chaos that dribbles inside my head sometimes. I look forward to seeing your blog continue to blossom into something beautiful. Let me know if your writings are on insta I’d love to follow your page there as well. 🙂

    Sidharth, I am a technology novice and don’t really understand the different platforms (I know it would be helpful if I did but I have not had time or energy to do it yet). Maybe 2020 will be my year to expand! Thanks for your support and encouragement.
