Letting go is part of moving on to something better. You will not get what you truly deserve if you’re too attached to the things you’re supposed to let go of. Sometimes you love, and you struggle, and you learn, and you move on. And that’s OK. You must be willing to let go of the life you planned for so you can enjoy the life that is waiting for you.

    I have had to learn this lesson over and over in my life. I learn, I use, I move on, I forget, I get attached, I suffer loss (people, beloved pets, physical health and abilities, mental health and abilities, heirlooms and other things with *huge* emotional attachments — even the basics like clothes, shelter, the ability to work, utilities … ). And yet, with all of that, I still understand that new things — maybe even more important things — can’t come into our lives unless there is room for them.

    I’ve been into a lot of different things over the years where I keep running across this idea. In a regular deck of cards it’s the Joker. When it’s used, it has nearly magical properties, both negative and positive, depending on what you hold in your hand. In Tarot, it’s the Fool, who is on the beginning of his journey and therefore has no belongings or even preconceptions. In Viking Runes, it is the Blank Rune. It looks empty but because it has room, it’s a positive rune because it’s absolutely brimming with possibilities. And, in my Catholic upbringing, it was, “That will, not mine.”

    Sorry this comment got so long, but this has been a life-long lesson for me, which I appear to be going through yet again.

    Blessings and {{{ gentle huggies }}}

    That should say “Thy will, not mine.” Spelling corrector. Sheesh.
