a change of scenery is always good for the soul. most of us get tired of doing the same things over and over seeing the same things over and over. but the one thing that doesn't seem to change along with the scenery is the simple fact that memories don't behave themselves. feelings don't behave themselves. the only thing we are left with is what we choose to do with the pesky things that will always be with us.
we write songs and poetry. we spend hours at night not sleeping, thinking up "do overs" and "if onlys". until we are out of our minds with frustration. resignation is always the last thing we want to entertain. sometimes it takes years to get there. sometimes we get there and hate it so much that we step back into the "what if" stage. we tell ourselves that we have found a new way to fix the problem. but life always seems to remind us that its time to resign and let go. we aren't meant to suffer loss perpetually. life wants us to feel the pain of our mistakes but it urges us on to face the rest of our lives and hopefully we will have spent enough time in the pain that we will try a different path.
