The man who insists upon seeing with perfect clearness before he decides, never decides. Accept life, and you must accept regret. Henri Frederic Amiel

Healing is a strange slow moving process.  When I had a broken arm they knew it because of an x-ray.  To determine how well it was healing they used the same process.

Healing for the mind is a much different beast.  Any type of imaging will not show the breakdown within that human computer.

I know some people who just don’t talk about what is happening within them.  They keep it pent up, brewing, seething, eating away at them.  I have learned that this begins to show itself with physical ailments.  They are a walking volcano that nobody has a clue just when it will erupt spewing all the emotions on anyone within reach. 

Some in my own family do not talk about relatives who have died.  I heard or read somewhere that the best way to keep someone alive is to talk about them.  I talk constantly about my mother, grandmother, grandfather, and others. It brings back warm emotions that counter-act any negativity that might be trying to take root.

I have also come to terms with regrets in my past.  I cannot travel back in time to change any situation, yet, I cannot move forward with my attention always looking backward. So, to move forward is to come to peace with all those regrets.

When I was younger and heard someone talk about a journal I always pictured it as something a young woman would do.  I now know that journal-ling can aid in the healing of the mind.  I do not regret starting this blog, it has allowed me to express my emotions with a positive outcome. 

So dear reader, I have learned healing takes time. It also comes in many different forms.  All I can tell you is just go with the processing!
