#reverb10 - Let Go


Let Go.
What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

The answer to this prompt came quickly, but the words to write about it did not. When I chose to participate in Reverb10, I didn't think about how hard it would be to put 'me' on the page. I could write about this in my journal, be brutally honest and know that those words would be safe.

Not so much here.

Do you see what I see?

More so because it isn't only strangers reading these, but friends and family - people I know.  I might run into them later today or tomorrow. Maybe I'll talk on the phone with them soon. (Will you ask me about this? It's okay, if you do, but I don't know if I'm ready to share the details...)

Clutter.

People. Things. All require time and maintenance. Do they enrich my Life in any way? Do I love them? How do I feel when I'm around them? It's easier to dump the bad stuff than the good stuff, even knowing it's not what's best for you.

I breathe easier remembering that the truth about letting go isn't about denial; it's about freedom.
