I'm trying to appreciate the temporary condition of today. For one beautiful moment, my world became a winter wonderland, then today, nothing...just brown, gray earth.
Sometimes, I wish I could go back in time, back to the pretty, snowy days in my life...
before hurt ever touched my heart, before doubt ever entered my mind.
But I know I can't go back to those days.
I can't erase the mistakes or take away the questions you might have about me...I can't always let myself be kept in turmoil at being misunderstood, stumbling every which way I turn.
I have to keep walking, learning, growing...
because as some anonymous person said,
"Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty, well-preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming--Wow, what a ride!"
