life after small deaths

c.1300, "embodiment of God in the person of Christ," from O.Fr. incarnation (12c.), from L.L. incarnationem (nom. incarnatio), "act of being made flesh" (used by Church writers esp. of God in Christ), from L. incarnatus, pp. of incarnare "to make flesh," from in- "in" + caro (gen. carnis) "flesh."
I have often lost years of work in few seconds. My sibling crashed the hard drive once and with it went years of my thoughts and poems. Once, in fits of anger, I grabbed my long locks of hair and chopped it off. And sometime this month, I removed all contents from this blog. It was scrapped clean.

What a beautiful self-inflicted blessing it was!

Because everything that comes back to life, comes back new. Life is never the same, after a little death. ( It is a good thing, these small deaths)

Reminds me of these lines from "If" (Rudyard Kipling):
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss
