Day 245 - Breaking Up... hard to do, or so the song says, right? But sometimes, people do such bad things, it kinda makes it easy. Instead of focusing on what I'm losing, I'm choosing to focus on what I'm gaining, or hope to gain in the future. And there is that word again. What word? The word I just said in the previous sentence. Hope. Which reminds me of one of my favorite movies, The Shawshank Redemption. (I digress, but bear with me, it's my blog after all.) Having been told previously that hope is a bad thing, a dangerous thing that can drive a man insane, now escaped convict Andy Dufresne writes his friend a letter that states...

"Remember, Red. Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things,
and no good thing ever dies".

No good thing ever dies. Remember that, I tell myself. My dreams and hopes are still intact, and will not be foiled or crushed by someone else, or deterred by a bend in the road. I'm not saying that I'm over my break up, or that I am not affected by it. What I am saying is, I am willing to let go, and hope for better. And as the original tag line to the movie states...

"Fear can hold you prisoner. Hope can set you free."
