Yesterday, FB's memories brought me back to a memory from 2 years ago --
"Heaven favours the strong and the just."
And I have been cracking my head eversince, just trying to remember what it was that happened a couple of years ago, which warranted such a statement.
I still can't remember but I suspect that it had to do with one of the major changes we've had to go through in our lives.
Here's the thing -- every New Year seems to bring with it not only a whole new year, but also a reset button for our personal lives too.
And though most of the time I am well armed and ready for what ever that may come my way (as the case is this time around), this particular reset button brings with it a different kind of feel.
The closer we get to the day -- the more real it gets -- and the more emotional I become just thinking about the eventualities, the possibilities, the loneliness and the empty other side of everything.
So some days, I allow myself to break down into a puddle of tears each time I think of the inevitability of having to press the reset button. Yes, heaven favours the strong... but surely there in strength in my softness?
3 more days to go.
To the reset button we shall go.
