With every journey you encounter, you can only make judgment based on the knowledge you have gained up until that point in time.
Sometimes we choose the wrong road for the right reasons, even when we know it is wrong. Walking down that same road... coming from an increased self-awareness, can lead you down a dark path from the past. One you might have thought... you had overcome. However, that is not always the case.
I retitled my blog to "Forget-Me-Not" not merely based on a beautiful flower, but more because of several other quotes and my new understanding of their application to my life.
I know my increased self-awareness will someday, indeed forget these deep journeys.
Forget-Me-Not: (def) My conscious effort to remember who I was, who I am and whom I aspire to be.
Words of Wisdom
"The mystery of human existence lies not just in staying alive, but in finding something to live for." -Fyodor Dostoyevsky
"Be the Change You Wish to See in the World." -Mahatma Gandhi [However, more accurately translated: "If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. ... We need not wait to see what others do."]
In closing, my own words: My writing is my way of becoming a forget-me-not.
