The Lightening Rod of Hindsight

The Lightening Rod of Hindsight

Project Reverb prompt: “Do Over: Hindsight is the one thing we never benefit from in the present.  Is there one moment you wish that you could do-over?”

Oh..this is , sadly apropos. I would do over something recent. I would wait longer to say everything I’ve said.

I wasn’t wrong, but my timing, could have been more thoughtful.

I learned from this I need to listen to how I’m feeling about things–if I feel like something is a bad You-will-not-be-punishedidea or something isn’t right I really should listen to that. It is sad that it isn’t going to turn out well for anyone, but I’ve done all I can.

I’m also learning that the anger, even if valid, doesn’t serve me for much longer than to let me know the boundary was crossed, give me the information about whether that was significant or not and then…then I have to let it go. Because otherwise I will live in that place and any more time than necessary with those feelings is a dis-service to me and my family.

And I’m at the place where while the hurt isn’t gone, the anger is. And that happened much faster than I thought it would.

Reverb14 Prompt: “We are all lightning rods, conduits for that which the Universe wants born into this world. What energies did you channel this year?”

The project for me is coming to an end, but I helped to bring to greater notice a part of geek culture in the south. I’m very proud of what I have done.
