impossible expectations only left me with lingering disappointments,

holding onto the past and what I wanted but could never have…led to bitter resentments…

the only way to appreciate what I have is to let go of what I thought I wanted…

embracing the present allowed me to feel less haunted…

a part of me, for a long time, couldn’t accept the family and the past I had lost…

but for the first time….I’m truly thankful for the bridges and paths I’ve unpredictably crossed…

life never, never goes according to our exact plans, no matter how hard we try to make it so…

we fight against what is…when the only way to find peace is to completely let go…
