“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.” – C. JoyBell C.
I have a sister tribe. We range in ages from 22 to well, not 22 and each of these women brings to our collective friendship the wisdom of her age and then some. And though we’re spread from California to Georgia and Texas to Alberta, we do our best to do life with each other.
It was one of these sisters of mine that posed a list of questions for each of us to get to know each other better. One of those questions was “what is one way you feel you need to simplify your life?“
My response was everywhere.
In the last seven months I’ve allowed myself to give up so much of what I was holding onto. Material possessions, fears, social media, things that have died that I held onto hoping that the breath of life of before might once again course through shriveled bronchial branches.
It has been the letting go and the holding on that has enabled me to fly. Letting go of what keeps me grounded, weak, scared; and holding onto what adds feathers to my wings. Even with its up’s and down’s and hard months my life and my soul feel more at piece than they have been in a while.
So I’m letting go and feeling the freedom of flight.
“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”- Marylin Monroe
