    Letting Go

    Author Unknown:

    It means I can't do it for someone else

    It's the realization that I can't control another...

    but to allow learning from natural consequences.

    which means the outcome is not in my hands.

    but to allow another to be a human being.

    but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.

    but to try to become what I dream I can be.

    Wow...I had that on a poster about 15 years ago and I really loved it. I lost it in a move somewhere. Thanks so much for posting it. I'm going to print it now and hang it near my computer!

    Re: Letting Go

    I've done a lot of that during my holiday but it helps to just keep it in mind when the mind takes off again.
    Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around.


    True love is wanting to give to another person without any thought about
    who’s getting the better of the deal.

    Love always creates, it never destroys. In this lie's man's only promise

    I like to reread inspiring posts and bump them up again, inspiring posts help create a happier mood for a happier day!
