I came across this quote from Dodinsky:
A memory visited my heart.
It mumbled the same story
as the previous days.
I usually dismiss it with tears.
But today is different.
Today I released it with a smile.
We come to a point in our healing when something within us changes. It can come from an aha moment or it can arrive without fanfare. It is a moment in time when we realize we have healed from a past hurt, when we have given ourselves permission to feel only the wake of its peace.
