Change wrapped in expectation, tied with a
bow of sadness.

Take the gift with thanks and a smile, it’s for the best
you’ll see. Slowly pull the ribbon, untie the knot of pain and grief.
Embrace the experience.
Easier to say than do, but do you must.


The future is there before you. Half-shrouded in mystery…
What next? Have you the courage to rip the shroud to pieces?
Relish the joys.
Or do you timidly tear the corner, reveal inch by terrifying inch the changes that take us
inevitably onwards.

Look backwards to your past,
remember and learn from all you have done.
Then be fearless.
Because forwards is the way you must go.
