A Fresh Start

The dew drops on the leaves reminded her there was hope. On this early morning her life was about to begin again: new and fresh with no hint of the pain she had suffered during the past year. Did she regret marrying a man who had controlled her to the point that she had lost the very essence of herself? No, there had been good times filled with laughter. And the traumatic experience had strenghtened her inner being. No longer was she the cosseted child of a wealthy widower. Now she was a woman who had experienced the harsher side of life; now she was better equipped to contribute meaningfully to life.

  1. Dear Colline,

    A friend of mine recently said, “No regrets.” Our life experiences shape who we are today. It’s good when that outcome is strong and positive.




    1. In order to think positively about the future I believe that one should try to find the positive in whatever one experiences – even though at first glance the experience may seem to have nothing positive about it.
