Let Go

It’s been said by many great people we need to let go of people and things that don’t serve us.  I thought I understood what they meant until recently.  I made a discovery while in the midst of personal turmoil involving some family members that totally blew me away.  While I thought I was working toward freedom, I am really holding on tighter and tighter.  Not consciously, but in what I just do.  Without going into a lot of details, I’m the sane one.  The one who can smooth everything out.  I am the one everyone depends on to make it better.  I didn’t even realize it till today, but by doing this I am making it harder and harder to go my way.  Awareness is the first step, next I have to change the way I deal with it.  As Einstein said,

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. - Albert Einstein

  1. its nice to see a talent that you express differently than others, isn’t it? great quote today, by the way. I keep using my same talents over and over, and I keep expecting different results- I need to learn other talents, I guesss. thanks for the reminder. mikey
