Six Word Friday: Looking Forward

usually at this time of year

we cast our gaze out forward

considering the turning of the wheel

a chance to start once more

to change those many annoying faults

to change ourselves from what was

to what we think we ought.

remember as we move forward

in this strange, wonderful life dance:

“there are no mistakes, only variations

some are intentional, some are not”

you are exactly where you are

supposed to be on your path.

so treat yourself with some tenderness

and then give some away, too.

the world can be harsh sometimes

loving each other softens the edges.

    Loving each other certainly does soften the edges! It’s interesting to think that there are no mistakes. Everything does happen for a reason, for sure.

    I found this very comforting. We are exactly where we’re supposed to be. We’re not back at the starting line just because the calendar turned over again. We are right here, right now. Yes!
