Postcard #2 (Nice Journey)

Saturday, August 7th, 2010

I owe an apology to someone I care a lot about. I am often so inside my own head I do not realize how my retreat within, my withdrawal from the everyday affects others. I recently avoided someone when they needed me, not because they needed me and not really on purpose but more because I was in my own head and trying to avoid the world. No matter my reason, I hurt someone. So, what better time than NOW to send a postcard with a simple apology and words expressing how important this person is to me? That is what I did this morning. Good Morning.

For the record, I am sorry. And love is fade resistant, no matter how far I go, no matter how long I am silent.

TIME {Explored!}, originally uploaded by Angie‚ô•Nan.

Time is too slow for those who wait, too swift for those who fear, too long for those who grieve, too short for those who rejoice, but for those who love, time is eternity. – Henry Van Dyke

Time is beautiful, ethereal. I spent the majority of my life living without regrets. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, years spent and no regrets. They were what they were, exactly what they were supposed to be, exactly how I arrived here.

Suddenly I find myself spending too much time, finite moments, regretting time already spent. At what point does this become an infinite circular loops of ridiculous? Regret will not change the past, the present or the future. Regret will not rewind time. Regret serves no purpose beyond dwindling precious time away.

This is what I must remember. This is what I must focus on. Forget regret, live. We only have this moment… and I choose not to spend this one drowning in regret.
