We’ve all had the feeling of needing to purge the less than wanted from our lives. The clutter, the trash, the broken, the old. Hopelessly scouring to reveal the clean slate our souls need.
Sometimes we rid ourselves of the people, the cluttered, the broken, the negative, the old to make way for the new, the better.
And sometimes we get cleaned out. Thrown out with the trash, let go like an heirloom that’s no longer loved.
And we say and we hope, “It’s all for the best.” And maybe at first we don’t even notice the split. “We’re all better off.” Afterall.
Then there’s the times you see it happening all too slowly. You see the river widening, the shores split apart, you can see the ocean in the horizon, and you can look back to the small trickle that began it all.
Do you turn back? Build Bridges? Fill in the gap?
Do you let go. Let the current take you further?
Do you care?
