Saturday Night Thoughts

Remembering the past can be bittersweet. The brain cannot keep memories exactly how they happened. As time goes on, our brain changes and so do our memories. I’m posting a picture of the summery Queen Anne’s Lace to remember that this icey cold weather we’re having will soon be a memory, just like the warm moment I took this picture. Tomorrow today will be gone. I’m very relieved that we will be getting a break from these frigid temps starting tomorrow, but I’m looking at the solutions on how to deal with something uncomfortable that has been here for over two weeks. I love going outside, I love taking Leeloo outside. And when we can’t do this, it forces me to see the truth in me. The truth is, I’m strong enough to deal with the pain. My memories serve this to be true. My present now sits with twiddling thumbs while my heart learns new ways to live happily and my mind finds new doors to open to lead me down a path that is fulfilling. The destination does not matter at this point. It is the journey that’s in front of me that needs special care and attention. Because that is the life we are living. The journey of right now. Whether it is ice cold or humid hot, or just a perfect 70°. Every degree is a lesson to learn, to enjoy, or to suffer. But it passes, it always changes. If we stay present, we will see through the temporary and find what’s real within.
