TODAY.

I considered buying this video, but I don’t think I will. I love this though:

“it’s not. everything isn’t new. we aren’t who we were and things aren’t how they were. how much energy do people spend wishing things were how they were? if you need to celebrate how good things were, then celebrate. if you need to remember who great it was when they were alive, then remember that. and if you need to grieve, grieve. and if you need to apologize or make amends or you need to do something to make peace with how it was, then do it. but then, move on. there’s, there’s a certain kind of despair that sets in when we believe things that were better back then. you know, when we’re stuck back there. when we’re not fully present. when we’re still holding on to how things were, our arms aren’t free to embrace today.”
