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,

resentment,

hurt.

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…

cleaner,

brighter,

yours.

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.
