One person, two journeys …

Serenity by dan/

I thought I had come so far and learned so much … but I have begun to realise that I actually know hardly anything and still have such a long way to go.

There is the journey of life – with its ups and downs, daily pitfalls, and hopefully joyous moments in abundance – and there is another journey taking place within me: one of understanding and acceptance, the path to finding peace and serenity, forgiving myself and being more forgiving and encouraging of others.  There is much work to do.  I need to find the right key for each door, and in the meantime rid myself of this anger and transform it into love.  There is no place in my life for anger any more … no rhyme or reason, and no excuse.

I was not born with anger and I don’t want it to live within me any more.

  1. Anger…such a common aspect of our westernised lives, but yeah, we do have to be mindful of when it starts to eat away at us and just…let it go. Or turn it into art!

    I don’t think any of us ever really know anything for sure, no matter what we have been through…

    • I just get so angry with myself … don’t like the bad habits I have, don’t feel I am doing things well enough etc etc … I am opting for the ‘turn it into art’ answer! Actually, no, both I guess since last night I started writing about my life. I have always wondered what the point in that is – as I’m not a diary person – and have other writing that sits waiting my attention, but to be honest I lost track of time and found it really helped. I’ll just carry on and see where it leads me. If nothing else, it will be a record for my children and hopefully it will provide some sort of closure. 🙂
