Feels just like yesterday that 2012 began; and how it has flown so fast.
I was going through an old journal earlier today, and came across some musings that I had written over 10 years ago. A relationship had just come to an end, my wounds were still raw. It felt like Life was not unfolding in the many ways that I had anticipated in my imagination. I sought solace in my journal.
As I walked down memory lane earlier today, I felt very different from my younger self who had shared his thoughts on those pages. And at the same time, I felt no different from that younger me.
Time….. guess it does fly by in the twinkle of an eye. I share below one of the musings that I wrote back then [one of the less shaming ones :-)]…… and further below, a picture capturing that whole essence of Now and Then….
There are some days when I feel I have come such a long way
On those days, I think the journey has indeed begun
Each experience bringing a lesson,
and with the lesson a deeper level of self-awareness.
On those days I pat myself on the back
and give praise to Mother Nature,
for this is a stage of the journey
that I never thought I’d reach.
There are some days when I feel
I have not moved from the beginning
On those days all I see are my insecurities.
All I hear is Mother Nature and her children mocking me
Each mistake a failure,
and with the failure a deeper sense of frustration
On those days, I hide myself from the world,
the journey never began,
It was all an illusion.
