Letting go...


Letting go is a process and it takes time.  Even letting go of that old comfortable sweatshirt with the holes in it takes time. Once I got rid of the sweatshirt, I still catch myself going to the closet to find it, only to realize it's gone. Old habits are hard to break.

My sweet Auntie passed away on Christmas day last year.  She was more like a sister than an aunt. I find comfort in knowing that she is no longer suffering, but I still miss her.  Family members have finally decided to follow their heart with their love of traveling and adventure. I find comfort in knowing they are happy.  A wacky and funny friend of ten plus years decided to walk away with no explanation. I find comfort in knowing they are doing what is best for them.

I still catch myself wanting to share things with these people only to realize I don't have that responsibility any more.  Yes, letting go does take time; not just a day or a week but some day in the future you realize you have healed and only the sweet memories remain.

Time is a healer, a friend, a maker of dreams.

  1. I call it purging. Sometimes it's me doing that with people who are holding me back, other times it's them, and sometimes it's mutual. It's life and it's not easy even when we know it has to be that way. I know what you're saying. The worst part is just letting it go without trying to figure out why it happened in the first place. I've learned that it takes too much of my personal time to figure out why it happens, rather I just choose to move on and hope everyone is where they want to be now. ;o~
