Let the Sun Go Down On 2015
I snapped this picture of the sunset last night and it occurred to me as I drove into one of the last sunsets of 2015…
What if we just let the sun go down on all our mistakes this year? Our losses? The times we wanted so badly for the answer to be yes but it was no? The times we tried our hardest and still failed?
The tears we cried, the friends we lost, the first dates that never turned into second dates, the missed deadlines, the “almost” lovers.
The bad hair days, those few pounds we forgot to lose, the broken nails, the broken HEARTS…
The dreams that didn’t come true, the unanswered prayers, the New Year’s resolutions we forgot to keep, the broken promises, the disappointments, the deferred hopes, the sleepless nights.
The wrong turns, the detours, the setbacks.
The rejection, the misdirection, the guys who disappeared without explanation.
The people who hurt us and didn’t deserve us.
The fears, the worries, the doubts.
The times we almost gave up on ourselves.
The times we forgot who we are.
The times we wondered if we would be forever alone.
…What if we just let the sun go down on all of it? What if we let 2015 keep every single bit of it? What if we simply refuse to let the darkness and the losses and the hurts and the letdowns win…and when that clock strikes midnight on Dec. 31st…be brave enough to try again?
