Peace comes at a Price
Mulling…mulling….then, more mulling. That little thought in your head. What could I have done differently? It swims around inside your mind, making waves that crash loudly and overpower all the other things floating around loosely in there. It will not stop. No. It will not stop until…..you pay the price. What is the price? It is different for everyone and for every situation. For some, it is a simple “I’m sorry”. For some, it is public shame. For others, it is emotional or physical pain or a myriad of other things. Whatever it is….there is a price to pay for peace to come, for the waves to settle.
So pay the price, and when you do, commit it to memory. Remember what it cost you in order to make the tempestuous upheaval ravaging the corners of your mind cease. Then…and only then….will the price you paid be worth it. For, then, it will not have only bought you peace, but also…..wisdom.
