You can never go home again.
Once you have pried yourself from your comfortable spot there is no turning back. You are propelled into a swirl of unknowns with only a small tool kit to help you navigate. You do your best. The allure of excitement and the prospect of discovery sustains you for a period but your heart never forgets. The tug for the familiar becomes so great that your memory changes all that is past into some glory days of wonder and greatness. You know the truth but you cannot escape .Around and around you go in your quest to be safe again or think that you are. How is that possible? There is only now and what consequences have been brought must now be answered. So again a choice. The old and familiar? Or continue on into what may be? Is there really a choice?
There is no certainty that is certain. I have accepted my journey as one that will always be unknown. In that there must be comfort. I do not want to go back – there is no back-only forward. I want to find peace with all that has happened so that there can be calm. Calm in my mind, in my heart and in my soul.
Happy New Year!
