Coming together and falling apart


together and apart


Coming together + falling apart.

This is the ebb and flow of all natural things.

When I was able to accept this truth and perspective,

my life became colored by a calmer hue.

I’ve written on a similar subject once before:

Everything is Broken.

I would dearly love to hear about your thoughts and experiences along the same lines, friends.

with love






We think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don’t really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It’s just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.

    Broken I’ve been…came back only to break again. I whole heartedly agree, the healing does come by letting there be room for all of this to happen. Life is what it is, full of lessons.
