Letting Go

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. - -Havelock Ellis

I'm in the process of learning to let go of a lot...physically, emotionally and materially.
The process itself seems to be teaching me a few other things as well.

I'm learning about the respect for self and that the need to put oneself first sometimes is not only okay, it's necessary. I'm discovering an appreciation for different and simultaneous needs.

Letting go can be a challenge in a variety of ways. It can be painful as it takes you along the road of healing though it's a journey well worth taking.

With each procedural step we learn something about ourselves, the situation we are in and possibly even about others facing similar circumstances.

With every step we learn.
Learning itself is a process that takes time....time worth taking.
