We let go of different things at different times of our life. Sometimes we get to decide what we want to let go of and other times we’re forced to let things, people, expectations, or circumstances go. Oftentimes it is not an easy process, no matter how you get there.
I do know that when you are able to let go of things, people, expectations, or circumstances, it allows you to make space in your life and your heart for the things that matter to you the most at the current time.
Like my friend Michele says, let go or be dragged.
Holding on is believing that there’s only a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.
― Daphne Rose Kingma
