Time is the filter of memories

Time is the filter of memories. It transmutes painful memories into poetry. It purifies. Make your peace with the wounding and the lost years.  You will find that the most important things are the hardest to write because words diminish their power.

Every memory is a potential gain. It is just in the way you can frame the experience. The key is to ask ‘What next?’ not ‘Why me?’
