Delightful December: Quote of the month

“There are moments when I wish I could roll back the clock and take all the sadness away, but I have the feeling that if I did, the joy would be gone as well.
-Nicholas Sparks

The thing about December’s is that they take you down the long stretch of memories made and the ones not made through the whole year. They remind you, and when you refuse to be cast back into the past, they compel you to reflect; on the things that worked and the ones that did not, on the friendships you made and the ones you lost, the dreams dreamt and the ones undreamt and discarded… they take you back to the drawing board, back into yourself; they ask you questions that jar you into motion and leave you wishing you had done better, but too, they give you something to hold on to— hope and gratitude. Because, oh how much sorrow and defeat you faced and how much joy and laughter came your way; yet the grief did not consume you so much that you could not feel the rush of happiness in your bones. Yes, you messed up badly on some days; but there were days when you gave yourself a chance to do better.

In the end, December’s teach us and heal us. They help us realize that everything happened just the way they had to. And had anything less or short of every moment of ecstasy and every second of grief we experienced been, history would be incomplete.

And we are here now, at the threshold of a chance of better beginnings, and mind blowing experiences. And I would not have it anyway else different.

It’s December lovelies. Let us open up to its lessons and glad tidings! Have a delightful month ahead. ❤️❤️
