meditation on button number two

What's it all about? read more here....
today I have sewn button number two onto my necklace to be while meditating on the passage below from Ralph Waldo Emerson, it's really speaking to me ...

Be not the slave of your own past. Plunge into the sublime seas, dive deep and swim far, so you shall come back with self-respect, with new power, with an advanced experience that shall explain and overlook the old.

Ralph Waldo Emerson

I think that Ralph Waldo Emerson must have been one of the wisest of all of mankind, i go back to his quotes again and again, and they all make so much sense and feel tried and true.  I love this quote, it gives me/you permission to move on and not senselessly detract from today with feelings of guilt for past mistakes or wrongs, we do not have to be a slave to that......instead, we can take the plunge to reinvent ourselves, to start afresh each day, valuing the old as simply experience, knowing now you/I have the understanding to go one better and not fall into old ways of being, old patterns of behaving, we can do it... there's always hope, a second chance, a light at the end of the tunnel, the sun behind a cloud... all misery is transitory
