Letting go: A centering thought

I’m going to be writing on emotional pain and realtionships through out the week, but I thought that I would borrow this thought from the author of “Codependent No More” aka Melanie Beatty.  It’s a great read, if you haven’t yet the opportunity to become acquaninted.  It’s going to  be a weird week of writing and writng in my world, including a late Tueday night for the first time this semeseter until the library closes.  Linkin Park is cruising me toward graduation, D survived her shoulder surgery and is staring down the anniversary of her twin’s death with admirable courage……There is golf in the hubster’s world….life is good.

It’s an amazing spring day in central Indiana, and I’m sitting on my front porch, slightly in awe of the green and the gentle breeze, slightly in awe of being facinated once again by life the universe and everything…just slightly in awe.  I hope that you were brining it to your life today – that you lived full out, authentic, that you got up and moved, worshipped in the way that you understand life…that you made today count.  It’s not to late.  Make a difference in your world, through your attitude, through your actions.  You’ll be amazed what happens when your expectations soar.

Here is a great thought about letting go of pain……

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. ~ Melanie Beatty
