As the day fades into night, the moment I’m tucked into bed often feels like the most challenging. My mind travels through winding roads of old memories and long-lost connections. Shadows of the past take the stage as the night’s main performance. It’s a dance between yearning for rest and the overwhelming desire to escape my own thoughts. I often say a prayer or entangle my soul in the a soothing meditation to release myself from the relentless grip of my own thoughts. On these nights, I wrap my heart in a tender embrace and gently remind myself that the sands of time will wash even these moments away. The struggle is real, but so is hope.
As I stroll down memory lane, I can’t help but embrace the journey and free myself from the shackles of emotions. Fear no longer holds me captive; I choose positivity. It’s important to acknowledge the battles fought and won by recovering warriors, for there are times when even the strongest mind whispers echoes of chaos.
