Let the past go

May these dark months have been merely one chapter in our lifelong pursuit of happiness, kindness, humility, peace, dignity, love, and understanding.

May the future look back at us with absolution, wishing that we’d understood that all we really have is now and that we need not be afraid of turning the pages.

The future is unwritten, yet it’s all we have and it starts today.

We can stubbornly attempt to influence it, yet we’ll still never see it coming.
