Early in the year, I had a running epiphany that inspired me to finally 'Say Goodbye'.
It was liberating to release myself from the all that emotional baggage. Those dark thoughts were counterproductive to my happiness.
This morning when I was out on my run, I went by the little Long Beach trail I'd discovered on my birthday last year.
Much to my dismay, the area had been completely leveled for the Termino Drain Construction project.
There was a giant bulldozer beside several dozen storm drain pipes.
The intent of the project is to alleviate flooding in the neighborhood during heavy storms.
Just as in life, you sometimes have to make difficult, painful decisions because ultimately, it's the right thing to do.
even the most longed for,
have their melancholy;
for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves;
we must die to one life before we can enter another.
