I treated myself to a new sketchbook yesterday. I'm working my way through a nature based alphabet in the bid to do a little sketching everyday. I've kinda missed it over the last year. I'm currently up to E, you can see those sketches in my stories if you fancy!
If your heart hurts a little after letting go of someone or something , that's okay. It just means that your feelings were genuine. No one likes ends. And no one likes pain. But sometimes we have to put things that were once good to an end after they turn toxic to our wellbeing. Not every new beginning is meant to last forever. And not every person who walks into your life is meant to stay 😌🌹

There's an opposite to déjà vu. They call it jamais vu. It's when you meet the same people or visit places, again and again, but each time is the first.
Everybody is always a stranger.
Nothing is ever familiar.
Home is not one place. It’s not only where you were born, or who you were surrounded by when you were young. And as you grow, your home grows with you, changes with you, reminds you of all the people you were, and are every step of the way.
Recent happenings taught me that defeats are inevitable. That the Universe will not always conspire with my high hopes, That success may sometimes be spelled as F-A-I-L-U-R-E and that bacon may not be always for my home. Doing my best may is neither an excuse nor a license for me not to fail but it is the only option in everything I do, even if it results to failure. Life might give me so many defeats, but I shouldn't be defeated.
