I Linger

My life is experiencing a great upheaval. It would be easy to look back with regret. To cling to the past and not let go.

It would be easy to fear the future. The unknown. Where will I end up? Who will be there with me?

Instead I am embracing the here and now. Savoring the moment. I linger as I go about my daily tasks. One more pet. A few more photos. Another glass of wine. I linger because right here, right now ain’t all bad and I don’t want to waste a moment of it.

Though change can be difficult, it often leads us to a better place. One of the most painful times in my life, led me to where I am now and I wouldn't go back to that past life for anything. There are good things ahead for you.

Thank you for this post. I, too, am at a crossroads in my life--different circumstances but the same feelings. Thanks for the reminder about the only thing I really have, and that's the here and now.
