Skeletons In The Closet

It's not even Samhain but it seems that it is time for skeletons to be coming out of the closet. One happened recently for one of my best friends but I only learned of it yesterday; the other happened yesterday for The Starchild, although I believe this one should have come out a very long time ago. Both of these skeletons are causing great pain for all involved; although for my friend the skeleton is likely to remain on the outskirts of her life while for The Starchild it is one that will be a big part of all of our lives here, as it should have been all along. I wonder if there have been other little nasties from long ago poking their heads up in other peoples lives recently...

To be clear, we didn't put our skeleton in the closet, but we let it stay there when we should have been trying to find the key. I know that there has been so much happening in our lives, more than we can deal with a lot of the time already, and we were all just doing the best we could for the time, but it shouldn't have been the way it was. At least out skeleton appears to be wearing a smile, but you never can tell with bones, can you?

Well, like I say, it should have been out long ago and the reality that it has been so long causes further shame and regret but it is better late than never. If it had have been sooner than our lives would have all been very different for sure, some ways good and some ways bad, as most of life is. I do believe that part of the reason why it has been this way is to allow us to get to where we are now as we have never been more capable of dealing with these sorts of things than we are these days. This, as I see it, is a blessing and for that I am grateful.

As for everything else, well, we just have to get on with it, don't we?

What is Samhain?

Whatever is going on, I hope it turns out well in the end. Sometimes skeletons fall right out of the closet for a reason. Maybe it's a good time for healing and clearing the air. It might not be Samhain, but it is Ostara time - for new beginnings and cleaning things up.

The truth always needs to see the light. The light is the truth's lover and must be seen.

Hope all goes well.

Love Renee xoxo

Thanks, friends.
Michelle, Samhain is Halloween, referenced here as the time when the veil between the worlds is the thinnest so more conducive to the idle wanderings of skeletons and the like. I know, sometimes my subtleties are just too subtle for the link to be clear ☺
And, yes msrb and Renee, healing, clearing the air, truth and seeing the light - all very appropriate. Thank you.
