Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go. ~Herman Hesse
There comes a time in each of our lives when we are “asked” to let go of certain places, certain ideas, certain things and certain people in order for something new to come our way, something new to emerge.
No matter what are the circumstances and no matter if you make the decision or if the decision is forced on you, letting go can seem like such a difficult and scary thing to do, am I right? If we could only find the wisdom and inner strength to allow things to come and go without any resistance on our part, our lives would get so much easier and we would all become a lot more happier and relaxed, at peace with ourselves and the world around us.
When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. ~Helen Keller
