Letting Go

“Letting go doesn’t mean we don’t care. Letting go doesn’t mean we
shut down. Letting go means we stop trying to force outcomes and make
people behave. It means we give up resistance to the way things are,
for the moment. It means we stop trying to do the
impossible–controlling that which we cannot–and instead, focus on
what is possible–which usually means taking care of ourselves. And
we do this in gentleness, kindness, and love, as much as possible.”

  1. All Right!

    Now, who is this Melody that has helped me to “let go?”

    Just, “let it go,” you say?

    Ok.

    I’ll return some other day and maybe this information I seek you’ll “let it go.”
