Letting Go

In the world of Spineys, some of us are used to letting go. For others this is your first time. Sometimes it is of our own free will and sometimes it is not. It can consist of the life we once knew, material things, jobs, even sadly, partners, hobbies and sports.
To let go isn't to forget, not to think about or ignore.
It should not leave feelings of anger, jealousy or regret.
Letting go isn't winning and it isn't losing.
It's not about pride, it's not about how you appear and it's not obsessing or dwelling in the past.
Letting go is not giving in or giving up.
It isn't about loss and it's not defeat.
To let go is to cherish memories, overcome and move on.
It's having an open mind and confidence in the future.
Letting go is accepting.
It's about all that you have.
Letting go is having the courage to accept change and the strength to keep moving.
To let go is to open a door.

  • This is so well written and so true. We must accept what we cannot change and look for the good in the now and the promise of the future. Such is life.
  • Well Said!
