home for a little vacation. has it only been 3 months since we moved...seems like so much longer. i read a book the other day "the five people you meet in heaven" by mitch albom. it was useful, timely even. and here is a quote, i am all about quotes today:
"learn this from me. holding anger is a poison. it eats you from inside. we think that hating is a weapon that attacks the person who harmed us. but hatred is a curved blade. and the harm we do, we do to ourselves."
and from a song:
"is there something that you haven't said?
i believe...i believe that love...i believe that love is the only thing...the only thing that can heal...us all." -j. siberry
and this is where i am right now in my particular journey to self. i'm looking at healing, instead of reopening, old wounds. i'm looking at forgiving, instead of forgetting. i'm looking at holding onto, instead of letting go of, people. i'm at that place we all come to eventually, even if just to visit for awhile. i just wanted to put this down somewhere, anywhere, for whatever reason. because today was harder than it should've been, and i need to know why.
