Today’s morning scribbles that I decided to share
I let myself grieve for the expected and very much anticipated future that was not meant to be.My soul collected the darkness and brought it to the forefront so that I may be able to shed it.
So for an hour or two, I experienced the pain I had been running away from.
Hard raw angry tears came and left then sad soft disappointed tears drained me of the rest of the darkness.
Only then did I let the light in.
And the light broke away the path that I had laid out.
Now I stared into nothingness.
But as I looked down then behind me
I was one step ahead from where I started.
I took a deep breath and focused forward.
I knew by losing everything what I found was opportunity.
