Revisiting Letting Go

Day 21

Project Reverb prompt: “What did you get rid of this year?  Physical things you tossed out or donated?  Or did you purge a bad relationship, job, etc…?”

I’ve let go of a couple of relationships this year. Ones that never did become what they needed to become. I held on much too long. I do that. Or, I’ve done that. I feel a tremendous sense of relief at the release. Sorrow too, but that is part of the process.

Reverb14 prompt: “Today, I’d like you to revisit what you wrote on 1 December on the first day of Reverb14. How does that compare to where you are now i.e. what can you say today with certainty?

I’d still say the same things, yep.

Then, without thinking too hard about it, grab a pen and some paper and finish the following sentences:

In 2015, I am open to…becoming part of a community
In 2015, I want to feel…freedom from the past.
In 2015, I will say no to…people asking too much of me.
In 2015, I will know I am on the right track when I have those lovely moments of saying “oh this feels good, I’m happy” and not being emotionally and physically exhausted. When I start to feel. Also when I begin to doubt that the sky is blue because someone told me it is orange, I’m done.

But when I find myself veering off course, I will gently but firmly…This has been great, thank you so much for the opportunity, but this is my two week notice of ….. I’m also hopefully finished being so polite that I get run over.
In December 2015, I want to look back and say…” What a big adventure this year has been!
