Forwards and Backwards

“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
— Søren Kierkegaard
.
These various forms of inspiration we find in our darkest days keep us going. They slow time down until it becomes palatable. They remind us to be thankful for each other and patient with each other. One day we’ll look back through tears and see that some of the things and people we are missing then could have been more appreciated and better understood while we’re still graced with their presence now.
