December always makes me maudlin. Tis the season to be jolly and forget all your follies, or so my wise friends say.
A good one to follow actually as the year comes to a close and a new one awaits at the threshold. Are you ready to usher it in with hope and gratitude and belief that you are looked after by a force greater than you can fathom?
Where were you when I was burned and broken
While the days slipped by from my window watching
Where were you when I was hurt and I was helpless
Because the things you say and the things you do surround me
While you were hanging yourself on someone else’s words
Dying to believe in what you heard
I was staring straight into the shining sun
Lost in thought and lost in time
While the seeds of life and the seeds of change were planted
Outside the rain fell dark and slow
While I pondered on this dangerous but irresistible pastime
I took a heavenly ride through our silence
I knew the moment had arrived
For killing the past and coming back to life
These lines from Pink Floyd’s Coming Back To Life resonates poetry, angst and hope. And it has stayed on with me through all the times I nearly got burnt and broken. When I mentioned this to a friend, his response: Shit Happens.
True, shit happens so have toilet paper handy 🙂
Whether it is your inner resilience, your belief in a higher self or a greater force, remember if something is dumped on you it will be eased as well.
So hold on and hang on. Remember, this too shall pass……
Have a good weekend, and stay blessed.
