“Don't go wasting all them bright tomorrows you ain't even seen by hanging on to what happened yesterday. Let go, child. Just breathe out and let go.” Beth Hoffman
It's over, all the good times and bad. Especially the bad that cut deep and almost broke me. I survived. Made it through. Overcame. For too long I held onto it. I let it define me but now I know it's over. It's in the past.
And all that good stuff - I never wanted it to end but it did. The project I poured my heart and soul into, the people who came alongside me, our working together came to an end. The doors on those chapters closed. And in me I knew it was time to move on. Time for something else. Something new. A different direction.
And the roles I took on that shaped my life shifted, changed into something different. I'm no longer a mom of young children. I'm a mom of young adults and with that comes a different way of being. And other roles I had, work related also morphed into something new and different.
It's strange, even when I know it's time to let go, I always try to hold on just a little longer. But I know not letting go will hinder new things from taking wings.
So today, grateful for all that's past and looking with expectancy to what is ahead.
Happy Thursday, Guys.
