Allow the past to pass

For years I kept 350 unread emails scattered around my inbox as a reminder of things missed in the passing, opportunities unexplored and the past as unresolved. It was a strange comfort that I hadn’t drained the past of possibilities and therefore if I controlled the past in this way the present and future were also in my control.

However, there comes a time when the past should be allowed to pass to make the present as present as possible; so I went through my email inbox selecting the unread emails but not reading them and clicking “read all” to get rid of the notification. Now the only unread email I have is the one I receive just now.
