As one page closes

By NDODS    
As one page closes, another opens

As one page closes, another opens

To all those who have loved with an open heart and have never had it reciprocated
To all those who have tried their damnedest to achieve a goal set but have lost in trying to achieve it
To all those who have invested in their once hearts desires yet have failed to receive them
Remember, Yes, dear ones, remember that
As one page closes another opens

O my dearest ones, note and note with all body and soul that ones thoughts, feelings and emotions, our every inner being should not be reminiscing about the closed page
Yet we should strive,
We should look ahead, yes look ahead at the page, the very one which has now opened to us
The brightness and fulfillment that it brings
New hopes, new dreams, new experiences, new souls
Better beginnings, a better life
A Better You.

Regards Nathan

Wonderful words, Nathan, ones that I connect with all too easily. My motto for 2013 is 'the only way is up', when you have reached the bottom of the pit the only thing to do is clamber out, however long it may take. An excellent image, very well thought out and presented. Have a very happy, healthy and peaceful New Year. Carol

Words my mother used to use.
She always had wise words and sayings which stay with you for life.
Is the verse here by a known poet or your own Nathan?
Sentiments perfect for a New Year.

Wonderful words of wisdom to inspire the viewer of this thought provoking image Nathan. We all start our Lives with a blank Page after all, and when we Marry, we start another Blank Page, what is written on those Pages is often beyond our control, yet somehow we learn to live with it. Let's hope that 2013 see's a Story of success written on its new blank Pages.

My very best regard to you Nathan,

Truly inspiring words with perfectly matched image.
