Day 4 - Abandoning the little girl (Learning to let go)

Oct 14, 2010

Learning to let go is perhaps not just the challenge of abandoning the little girl, but also the challenge of every idealistic adolescent as they become a reserved adult. I've spent many years offering undue importance on those who would not return sentiments and clinging to things, relationships, dreams, jobs long after their time had ended.

Being able to look with a critical eye and a non emotional heart at those things that have run their course, appreciate them for their evolutionary effects, and calmly bid them adieu is something I must learn.

So I wonder, to learn not to be hurt by the natural passings of life's chapters, but to instead reflect peacefully upon memories and let all waters flow away without attempting to halt their inevitable dispersion, is that in fact the grace that would partner with the serenity I imagine?
