Only two more days left of Blog Everyday in May (although I didn’t quite manage every day – what’s a girl to do)!
Today the prompt is “react to this term – letting go”
When I first started writing this post it was going to be quite light hearted but then when I was looking for an image to use I came across this little beauty:
And I don’t know it spoke to me in quite a profound way. I kind of felt the need to get serious. I can only apologise.
I met a man a while ago now and fell for him so very hard. And I learnt amazing things from him and he was wise and calm and he was kind to me even though he’d spent a lot of his life being cruel. He was never ever going to be mine forever, In fact he was never really mine… but I digress. So when the time came for us to move on it was really, really hard to let go. For both of us. And it literally took us another 6 months to let each other go, to go through the process, to stop holding on to each other.
So now I move on with my beautiful and busy life and I’m more prepared, better equipped, more resilient, more aware of whom I am, of what I want. I have confidence in who I am, in what I can be, of what I can give. I am strong. I look around and I see people holding, clinging on to ideals, to partners, to friendships and I know that sometimes the strongest thing you can do is just let go.
