Letting Go

I felt compelled to write on this, because I think it's something I do well, and some thing that at times I can struggle with.

"Letting go" two words, a total of 9 letters, but the power the principle packs is incredible. Every day I watch people struggling to let go, but why. For some it's the situation, after all, losing someone close to you is one of the hardest things we do in our life. Whether we must lose someone to time and space, or because of the "life" transition known to many as "death." Other situations, most fail to take a second thought for, for instance, do you scream in agony emotionally to let go the carbon dioxide you expel each day? We are constantly gaining and giving on a daily basis.

I have resolved to "let go" more often, and I think I am all the better for it. Throughout my life I have let go of "expectations" that were never mine, but that I felt I had to meet. I have let go of pain, that was too hard to hold onto. I have done my best to let go of anger, because time is too precious to waste on it. And, the list goes one.

I guess my point is, what would your life look like, if you "let go" more often, more specifically, let go of all the garbage/negativity we are so intent on holding onto. We've all been hurt, and probably experienced unspeakable pains. But we have also experienced unspeakable joy, at least I have been so fortunate. Hold onto the good and the sometimes elusive but necessary "possibilities" in life. Life is too short to be bogged down.

Honestly try "letting go," I promise you will be all the better for it.
