George Eliot painting by Francois D'Albert Durad.
"We can never run from who we were. Like a Slinky that goes ahead and waits for its backside to join it, our past will catch up with us somewhere in the future. If we honor the past as a path to growth, we can clear the way for easier going. Acknowledge the past, release any anxiety concerning it, and move on honoring the path and the self that led you there." ~ Freda M. Chaney
