So, I'm a year older today. But a year wiser? Yes, for sure! As I stand here watching the Sunrise, I realise a lot has changed in and around me. Over the past year, I have made a few new friends and I have also lost a few old ones. But that's okay. I accept the loss graciously and gratefully now. More important is the fact that I understand things a lot better now too. I understand that no matter how hard you try, you can't control who stays in your life. You're eventually going to lose a few people as you journey through life. And the wise thing to do is to accept this fact. Accept, let go and move on. I also understand that it is easier said than done. After losing my mom at a young age, I had become phobic about losing people. Just the thought of someone not being in my life would throw me in a panick mode. Literally! But now I have learned to accept and let go and it is oddly comforting. Liberating too! As Dumbledore quotes & I repeat *Only with acceptance can there be understanding and only with understanding can there be healing!* In the end, all I can say is that I'm grateful for those who have stayed over the years and I'm grateful for those too who have left to make room for better people.
PS: Aai, I miss you too much every single day. But as my tattoo states *I'll always find you in here ❤*
You, Complete. Me.
