You can’t go back. You can return to the place you left, but you are still moving forward. I have wanted to stop things, to freeze a time where I felt really great, or resist slipping into a place when I didn’t. What I resisted persisted, and me fighting the struggle made a bigger mess. Though, with each swing of the inner pendulum we learn. From our highest high to the so low we don’t even talk about it, we grow. This life is all about change and letting go, of learning how to be the rock as the water rushes over and around it. Happiness is temporary, find Joy. Then let the turmoil come and trust that it will pass. It always will, we just have to get out of the way.
