Day 318, November 24
A painful time in our life is what I call a “healing crisis.” We are letting go of something old and opening to something new. ~ Shakti Gawain
It's difficult to let go of things. Whether they be material things or feelings or expectations or whatever. Sometimes it is even difficult to let go of grief. If I let go of my grief, will I also let go of precious memories? But if I don't let go of it, I am in danger of losing myself.
As in most of the "biggies" in life, I do it in bits and pieces. I let go of part of the grief and hold onto another part. In time, perhaps I will be able to let go of that as well. Then comes another challenge: replacing the grief with something else, opening myself up to something new.
Joy for today: letting go and opening up.
