What do you wish to walk away from?

     I've walked away from a lot in the last month.  And looking back over the last ten... twelve... years I realize that I've walked away from so much time and time again.  It feels at times as if my life has been nothing but walking away from things and people.

     I suppose it is one of the 'complications' of growing up in a transient military lifestyle.  You learn quickly that nothing lasts.  Friendships.  Homes.  Schools.  It can all change in the blink of an eye.

     I'm tired of walking away from things.  I want to walk towards something instead.  I want to walk towards healing, health, and happiness... towards security, sincerity, and serenity.  I want to walk towards financial freedom, friendships, and a future filled with possibilities.

     If there is anything I want to walk away from... it is my past.  My history.  I'd like to take the lessons learned and be able to forget the tests.

Walking towards my future...


  1. As Cindi wishes for herself, so I wish for her also.

  2. Oh yes as someone who has also had a transient lifestyle I relate to this. As you wish for yourself so I wish for you also x

  3. Cindi, this is lovely. I agree with you about the letting go of the past except for the memories. I feel the same. As you wish for yourself, I wish for you also.

  4. As you wish for yourself, so too do I wish for you.

  5. This is really lovely.

    As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you as well.

  6. Hi Cindy,
    Hope you'll develop roots so you lose that transient impression. May your wishes come true!
    As you wish for yourself, I wish for you too. Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.
    Cheers from France.

  7. Beautiful. I want to walk towards all those same things.
