This is a night of new beginnings. Last night we released all the things we needed to let go of from the past year, and tonight we start fresh.
Sound like anything any of us need to do? I know I needed to. I had a lot of mess I had to release, some of it incredibly personal and some of it more public. I was fortunate to be surrounded by friends who I know will always love me, despite my inability to love myself sometimes.
Today I will begin trying to replace the hurt, the anger, the bitterness with positive things. I need to be a more positive person, and I am going to continue to work on that.
Between the funeral for my husband's grandmother and the time spent with friends last night it was incredibly emotionally charged day. And the theme of the day was very clearly "letting go." I can't think of a more appropriate day for a funeral, to be honest.
Also, something that was mentioned at the funeral, and I think it's so true to the spirit of the day...
Right after Ruth took her last breath, chimes rang throughout the hospital... announcing that a baby had just born.
I can't even think about that or type that now without tears in my eyes, the profoundness of it blows me away.
Have a very blessed Samhain everyone.
