Time heals all wounds. I have a love/hate relationship with time but the old adage holds true. For better or worse time keeps moving forward and forces you to go right along with it. We are forced to move on and keep going. Time gives us distance and new experiences to help us get through whatever is happening in our lives and in that way time is beautiful.
We are resilient; we have to keep going. It’s when we cling to a specific moment or experience, when fight the urge to just move forward that things become really difficult. We are fighting time. We sometimes futilely dig or heels in and try to drag our pain with us. At some point we all have to let go. We can’t hold on to the bad forever. Time won’t let us. We all get distance regardless of how much we resist it.
It is nice to know that we can just keep moving forward and how hard that is really depends on us. We can look ahead to the future or try to hold on to the past. Over the past few years I have learned it is easier to let go. It doesn’t mean I forget. I just don’t want to drag anything with me. Life is easier to enjoy without the strain of all the extra baggage.
