The door opened and the wind swept in, lifting the balloon out of my sweet girl’s gentle grasp and up up and away before she could even comprehend what was happening.
Sometimes we hold onto things for fear of losing them, and in a moment of distraction, we let go and they are gone.
The tears come, we find ourselves in sorrow, and we might even convince ourselves that things will never be the same.
It’s true, they won’t be, and that’s often such a gift when we can be open to receiving it.
When an outside force plays a part in leading you to let go, it can be a relief. You didn’t have to choose. You didn’t have to think and think and over think. You didn’t have to be attached to your decision.
Sometimes we let go of a dream because we’re tired, or we’ve grown into something new, or because someone has taken it from us. No matter what has led to the letting go, it is in letting go that you get to plant new seeds and grow.
That can be crazy exciting. And terrifying.
It requires a strength and sense of self-trust that I believe we all have. You might not be consciously aware of it in the moments when you feel terrified, but I promise that you’ve got it in you.
My hope is to help coax that spirit of yours to life so that you can create all that you dream and desire. When you do, you’ll start to see the letting go as beautiful as a balloon floating through the sky.
Peace, Love, and Wellness,
