I have always had the unfortunate characteristic of hanging on to the past. I find it borderline impossible to forget things and move on. I guess that’s why I remain close with my friends for ages. Once they have touched my heart, letting go isn’t easy. Similar to ex-boyfriends. The final sting of being completely over it never seems to flick off me. So would I change the string of guys I have dated…? I honestly don’t know.
What I know for a fact I wouldn’t change is how hard I have loved. Love makes the world go round. Without it, we genuinely would have nothing. When I feel like I should have done something differently, I know that it’s a moot point. Because I made every decision with love in mind, whether it was for friends, family, the dreaded EX, or even myself.
Posh wants to visit an astrologer for a bit of esoteric guidance in her life. She asked me what I thought about the whole experience, as I have been before. And I told her, no one, not even an astrologer, tells you stuff that you don’t already know. You may not acknowledge it, but you know it. An astrologer simply reinforces it. And I think with regards to changing time, we all know we wouldn’t have made our decisions any differently. Because we know we were right. Even if we don’t acknowledge it.
Acknowledge your decisions, you made them for a reason and those reasons are more important than any amount of regret. So for today let time stand still and bask in the knowledge that you did the right thing. Let go of the concern that you made a mistake. For sanity. Questioning needs to chill for a while. Afterall tomorrow is another day.
I leave you with this quote. Its good advice for me, and I hope it is for you too.
“Yesterday ended last night. Every day is a new beginning. Learn the skill of forgetting. And move on.” -Norman Vincent Peale
And if that doesn't work then
