    Letting Go And Moving On

    I have made this my time. My time to deal with all that is painful, examine it, and put it away.This is my time to heal, to face my demons and my fears. My time to remove those toxic people and circumstances from my life, and move on. Too much wasted time, too much wasted...

    Getting out of this relationship is

    so hard but so easy. I can't explain it. When you grow out of someone and realize you deserve the world and more, you feel so at peace with yourself.

    or a word, she let go. She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the 'right' reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation...

    for the past year and a half it's hard to let go. I wish I could just delete her out of my mind, but I can't. She's gonna take part of my heart I can't get back. I'll miss her like crazy.

    Letting go doesn't mean giving up on desire,

    doesn't actually mean giving up on anything. Leting go means desiring the given thing or state so much, that the peace of mind of not having it grows stronger. Letting go means acquiring the peace at heart for having the desire.

    What's with love these days.

    Can't find it anywhere anymore. Those of you out there, don't get involved with love from the age of 8-18. This will be a disaster believe me. Where is a good place to find love and peace at the same time?

    We have to stop trying to catch the river with

    our bare hands. Life continually move and flow. Otherwise, we stagnate or atrophy. Letting go is a huge part of that. If we do not let go and allow ourself to be changed, we will find ourselves stuck.
