One of Life’s Detours…

Someday I won’t be able to let go and move forward, today is NOT that day!

On a late night run it hit me out of the blue; I was finally ready.  It has been 3 years and 10 months since we had to sell what we thought would be our “forever home” and I finally felt able to go back and check it out.  Given the choice I wouldn’t have taken this particular detour in life, however the lessons that came with it have proven to be more than worth the grief it caused.  In the wise words of Socrates, “The secret of change is to focus all of your energy, not on fighting the old, but on building the new.”  That one took me a while, but sure has made a difference in my attitude and actions since it kicked in. 😉  I am so grateful for and happy with where we are now in our lives, that instead of arousing feelings of sadness and loss, going back sparked warm and tender memories.

Today was serene!
