Let It End And Let Me Start All Over Again


A few days before the New Year and the wind blew rather harshly, disturbing the stillness of the cold advent sky.

It is unusual to be windy at this time of the year. Perhaps it is nature’s way of summoning 2013 to hasten to leave. And I thought, Maybe all the bad omen will be gone with it, too.

The wind’s unexpected presence was haunting; it was as if it carried flashbacks from the days and months that passed; flashbacks that I long to forget and yet they seemed to be engraved in my memory for the rest of my life. I found my emotions still bursting like fireworks as I vividly recall those moments. And if only I could skip past those parts and spare myself tears and agony. But I guess some things are really meant to happen and inevitably, some of life’s chapters had to be written that way.

It is a few days before the New Year and I wait… The wind managed to sneak into my bedroom window; I peacefully fell asleep as it gently caressed my skin and took away some of the pain that I was willing to let go.

  2. I can relate to you with wanting 2013 to pass and for 2014 to bring some better memories. It has been windy here as well and with wind comes feelings of darkness. I always love reading your blog dear.

  10. Some things have to happen for us to move on or to grow. But once we are ready, we can let these things behind and start again.
    Wishing the wind will heal your wounds so you can let go of the pain of these past months. And may 2014 bring you harmony, love and peace dear Irene.
