Begin Again

“I let go. Lost in oblivion. Dark and silent and complete. I found freedom. Losing all hope was freedom.” ~ Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

I have spent my whole life being afraid. Afraid of loss. Afraid of change. Afraid of being alone.

But then the worst happens, and you are face to face with everything that you fear, and you come to the realization that with loss, you also experience freedom.

I have lost everything. But I am free, and I am no longer afraid.

And I can begin again.

  1. I am so glad to hear from you! I thought you had given up on the world, on your friends, on everything! Your blog post sounds like the preview to a novel, or a movie… =)By the way, that picture on your post reminds me a of a gift that someone Turkish once gave to me. Are those Turkish eyes?
