The Ties That Bind

Last night I signed up to participate in National Blog Posting Month for February. I’ve attempted this before and failed miserably. I’m hoping I’ll succeed this month. With it only being 28 days I really ought to be able to write something every day, right?

February’s theme is ties (you know, the ties that bind, choke, hold, dress up a suit, etc)…

I wasn’t sure where I was going to go with this theme because I’m not a romantic soul but I’m not totally heartless either. So I’m just going to go with what I’m feeling and right now I feel like untying some strings that are keeping me bound.

Sometimes there are people that we meet in our lives and they touch us in ways that no one could ever understand and then they disappear and we’re left to wonder what happened to them. I’ve learned over the past few years that sometimes it’s best to leave the past in the past. Looking back keeps us from moving forward. Because we are sentimental, we sometimes get stuck in the past and lose sight of the present. So tonight I’m letting go of all the people and things that have hurt me in the past and I’m moving forward.
