keep what is worth keeping, and then,
with a breath of kindness, blow the rest away.
- George Eliot

The "stories" we choose to tell about our past
are never what a video camera would have recorded.
We can tell a sad story or a happy story,

while the other brings us joy. I choose joy.

is your Rattlesnake Mind striking off on its own.
