“Nothing ever goes away until it teaches us what we need to know.”
The sun is setting on 2012. Thanks for sharing it with me, for reading the blog and stumbling along with me through this tough and rather unpredictable year. Here are some words I’ve been thinking a lot about:
“Things falling apart is a kind of testing and also a kind of healing. We think that the point is to pass the test or to overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.” -Pema Chödrön
Happy new year. I hope you have a lovely evening, and be safe.
