This took my breath away. The entire front and middle part of this piece I'm nodding my head, in complete agreement, whispering "me, too!". What beauty we find in feeling the connection.
But that ending. The ending here I really felt like it all just clicked for me. It seems so obvious and so simple, but when you're too close to yourself sometimes it's hard to see. Gaining wisdom from mistakes, not only is that proof of a life of chance, risk, trying, and faith...but it also means growth for those mistakes we've made that hurt people, hurt ourselves. Beautiful ah ha moment. Thank you!
