i love it, just like that.

I recently posted a poem that I had written way back when. I couldn’t remember who it was for, I couldn’t remember why I had written, I just knew someone had made me feel that way at some point in time. My dearest friend asked me who this poem was about and I couldn’t answer. And then she said something so brilliant that I immediately whipped out pen & paper and wrote it down. She said “I love it just like that. Someone who used to cause me angst- but I don’t remember who.”

Though I do not remember which boy had caused so much pain or what exact incident had generated such feelings, after I read the poem, it was very clear to me that despite all these details that had washed away, the lesson remained. I had learned to love differently, to take of myself a little more. I had taught myself to let go of someone that was not for me. Amazingly enough, I had taken something from all this pain and had known what details to leave behind.

Life is just that, I guess. Take the lesson, take the feeling, remember it, forget who caused. The point of all this, the good and the bad, is growth. We need not hang on to details or labels, it’s all about moving forward in this beautiful mess called life.

And remember your game changers just like that, something you felt, something that changed you, something that was meant to happen and meant to shift your world. Because at the end of day, whatever happened to cause that pain that I wrote about, got me here and I wouldn’t change that for the world.

Salut, bleu
