“It’s good to sit with what was and what is. To feel the things we’ve lost and to recognize the things we’ve gained.”
I stumbled across these words the other day…words I wrote while processing through the anniversary of my tumor diagnosis earlier this year.
In this unexpected year, these words took on a new meaning…a broader application of truth.
Before stumbling across these words, I contemplated not sharing a fall reflection. This season has been a long, difficult one, and I was confident I had nothing to say just yet. But those words changed my mind…and reminded me just how healing the practice of reflection can be.
As the year draws to a close, may we pause to sit with what was and what is. May we recognize what was lost as well as what we have gained.
