It's all good.

You never know what the tide will bring in; but rest assured, left well alone, it will take it back again. People drift in and out of our lives. I'd like to think there are reasons for these ebbs and flows - in fact I'm sure of it.

I joke that there are lessons to be learned, and only when they're absorbed can we truly move on. Lately I've realized that for me, the idea is to see things as they are, and not as they should be, or how I want them to be.

Sometimes love isn't enough, and at the end of the day there are more tangible reasons for things to be the way they are.
I've learned you cant fight life; you let select people in, and hope for the best. What happens next isn't so much in the lap of the gods, but within ourselves.

When it's not enough, you have to be happy you tried, having no regrets. Love is the stuff of legends - battles won and lost over time immortal. It's comforting to know that when we're nothing but dust, people will still be looking for the answers, when it's entirely possible there are none.

Kidding - it's something about chocolate - obviously! :)

People have been looking for answers for millenia and will continue to do so, as you say, when we are nothing but dust.

The trick is just to live in the now and enjoy the ride.

And what a ride it is :)

you're right Mark - sometimes love isn't enough. I've been going through another 'love lesson' which is still too painful to write about hence my lack of posts. But I AM happy I tried and if I can pick myself up off the floor hopefully I'll try again!
