“Don’t cry over the past, it’s gone.
Don’t stress about the future, it hasn’t arrived.
Live in the present and make it beautiful.”
This has been such a tough one for me this past week. Several things triggered hurtful memories from my past and it completely overwhelmed me to the point of tears. Every. Single. Day. For an entire week. Not good people. Not good.
But a dear friend spoilt me with coffee and a much needed chat that gave me some perspective. Things are looking more hopeful this week as I continue on my path of healing.
“Life is like a piano, the white keys represent happiness and the black show sadness. But as you go through life’s journey, remember that the black keys also create music.”
How beautiful is this metaphor? It is really resonating with me as well since I started practising playing piano again after so many years this week. Pressing so many wrong notes in real life and on the piano. But as I tell my daughter: practice, practice, practice. Maybe if I look at my life’s journey as one long practice session, and stopping expecting some degree of perfection, it might help me get through it with less pressure on myself.
