100 Days of Writing – Day Ninety-Six

It was June of last year that I started my one-hundred days of writing. I planned on writing every day for those days. Here we are, nearly a year later and I’m just closing in on the hundredth day. It should be interesting to read back over what I’ve written this past year. If only I knew then what I know now. But that’s not the way life works, is it?

I am one of those people who genuinely wants to understand life. Why do things turn out as they do…why people, including myself, do the things they do. I have gained some understanding, but have I really. I think I’ve figured out why things in the past happened as they did, but have I really? It may just be my viewpoint and that’s about all. And I’m okay with that.

Radical acceptance is a relatively new term for me. But I think it’s an important concept to take into account moving forward. The past definitely cannot be changed. Things happened as they did,,,turned out the way they did. No amount of thinking is going to change that. While there are lessons to be learned for sure, I don’t need to obsess about the past and revisit all those moments.

So just for today, I’ll try to live in the present and appreciate the day.
