stopped the car, unpacked, and smiled about the idea of nothingness (and everything-ness) in my future.
and now, a year later, the future has been filled with lots of everything. happiness and sadness both. tears and smiles and laughter and trips and memories that i neither regret making, nor could live without - as i always know there's more coming. always more.
i received an email today from an old friend. one who i thought had slipped away. and it brought me right back - back to where i needed to be. reminded that the past created who i am, and the future can be determined by it. and while there is so much tied to letting go, i am fond of the idea of embracing and erusing the past. it's part of me, and i won't let go of it.
and so, i move forward. and i imagine what the next year will be like. and i reinvest in things of the past, and i prepare myself for the things ahead of me.
and one way or another, i will conitinue to look at a face in the mirror that belongs to me. each day.
a year brings a lot. to another year.
