Letting Go

 Life is a balance of holding on and letting go.

I read that quote earlier in the week and I have had it on a sticky note on my computer screen every since as a reminder to myself that sometimes I do need to let go.

It is something I have had a hard time with my entire life.  I have a hard time of letting go of things. Sometimes I even have a hard time holding on to things that I should.  But the letting go is always the hardest.

I harbor things within myself that I should have let go of a long time ago.  I hold on to past hurts, pain and hurt feelings like I am hording water for a trip across a hot, dusty desert.

And I realize that all I am doing by holding on to these things is hurting myself.  I am making the wounds deeper and pouring salt on them.

I have been learning to let go more and more over the years with the right amount of therapy and deep reflection.

I have finally realized that In letting go I am finally letting myself heal.

Healing in:

Body – Mind – Soul
