I miss moments all the time. It sucks and I often try to recreate a moment but it’s never the same.
The reality is the moment has gone and life will not give it back.
But the peculiar thing is when I come to embrace this cold hard fact and understand that I have no choice but to move on, it makes the act of letting go much easier.
I have no choice but to continue moving forward in life.
In addition, the fact that I have these near-misses makes me more confident. They give me hope and belief that other moments will arise.
And they always do.
While the act of letting go can be quite hard to bear and even sad at times, it is also a practice in the belief that the ‘tide will turn’ and better things will always most certainly come.
