Proximity

source
Proximity is everything. Think about that. It is. How close we are to something has a profound effect on how we perceive it and how it affects our lives now. Need some examples? How close are you to…

-what happened?
-what’s happened since then?
-what you felt should have happened?
-forgiving or forgetting or finishing with?
-that mistake?
-that celebration?
-that realization?
-that lesson?
-that declaration?
-that decision?
-that forgotten decision?
-a life-changing event: a birth, a death, an illness, a move, a poke in the ribs, a punch in the gut?
-that conflict?
-that first?
-that last?
-the beginning, the end?
-starting over?
-that moment in the photograph?
-home?
-your past, your present, your future?
-that window of opportunity?

Regrets? Learn from them; let them go. Or maybe use them as leverage now. Or be stuck in time. This is why some people claim time is a blessing. We need time. We always mourn time’s passage but without its passage we wouldn’t be able to see things more clearly, with a deeper understanding. Time promises there is something new on the horizon. Something fresh. And it will pass too. But we can still get close to what is happening now. Proximity.

Time heals all wounds and hopefully, time wounds all heels as well.

I've always been fascinated how something which is incredibly minute can have a tremendous impact on the rest of our lives.
It truly is a road less traveled...
