How does that feel?

One less burden on your back,

one less name on your list.

It’s bliss.

I know. I’ve felt it too.

The letting go…

of anger,



And there may be days

where memories creep up on you

like strangers knocking on your door.

That’s what they’re for-

to remind you.

You did what was right,

no need to fight.

This new life you’ve already been leading for years

is better now…




I’m on the verge of a change so big, I sometimes find myself waking up hoping it’s all just a nightmare….a dream within the dream. My life looks so different from what I thought it would. Sadness creeps so quietly and like a thief in the night, catches me completely unawares.

And all I can do is let it wash over me. Avoiding it gives it power. Fearing the hurt makes it hurt more. So I sit with it. I feel it all and let it out. I give it away. I ask to see it differently.

Willingness was the first step, surrender the second and now I have dropped softly into grief. And relief.

I have no idea what the future holds, but I am determined that peace be my goal. I’ve tasted the toil and have no desire to go back there. I have context, experience. I’ve been shown that a life surrendered moves smoothly. And when my life doesn’t flow, it’s time to let go.

One day at a time. Focus on the love. One day at a time. Surrender every fear. One day at a time. Accept the offered miracle.

One day at a time.
