You know I’ve read those words a million+ times but I’ve never actually understood the full extent of them. I always thought of Letting go as reffering to your ex’s and that was always so easy for me. I never knew that letting go could be applied to so many more areas of your life, if not all of it. I guess to let go of something you need to acknowledge that you’re holding on. Ive been holding on so tightly to my roots, where I’m from, my family and old friends, that it was far from healthy. Holding on to memories, in fear I’d never be able to replace them. It’s true, I won’t be able to replace those memories but I’ll never be the younger version of me to recreate them. In getting older, I’m growing up & moving forward with my life. I will make new memories with new people. That was such a hard pill for me to swallow for so long. Perhaps it is my strong sense of loyalty that stopped me from accepting that & letting others in, but whatever the case is I’ve decided to finally let go. Let go of everything inside myself holding me back from being myself. I have to let go of the people in my past, to make way for the people in my future, including my future self. No more being stuck between two worlds. No more being stuck in general. Time to focus on now and the future, not look to the past. 2013 is the year of letting go in my stars, isn’t it crazy how accurate they turned out to be? This is death and rebirth on a far larger scale than I anticipated experiencing. So grateful, for the best is yet to come.
