Turn Around

I know
it is hard to be reconciled
not everything is exactly
the way it ought to be

but please turn around
and step into the future
leave memories behind
enter the land of hope.
~Zhigniew Herbert, from A Life
I found this quote in an Oprah magazine of my mothers, I found it to be incredibly inspirational so I thought that I would pass along the wisdom to you.

  1. How ironic that I found this comment in the Oprah magazine this morning. This quote could've been written for me. I am attempting to heal a badly broken heart & while I thought that the memories were better than nothing, perhaps they are the emotional equivalent of pulling a band-aid off very s-l-o-w-l-y over and over?
