Letting Go and Moving On
I woke up early as I usually do. This morning was different and somehow I sensed that something special was going to happen. Of course, I said to myself, something always happens. I even wrote down my thoughts at 5:16 a.m.
The first thing I realized was that over the course of the last week I had let go of a matter that had been troubling me. While I didn’t forgive the injustice and meanness that had occurred, I did find myself moving beyond those events. The past became history and I woke up realizing for the first time that the heaviness and obsession with the matter had left. Instead, I found I was looking forward to the day to see exactly what it would bring.
By 9:40 a.m. I had already received two phone calls each of which could have been a harbinger of the special happening. And later I received another phone call that was the good news I had sensed.
What will your day bring? Do you live your life waiting for something special to happen? With some matters as is the case with the phone call with the good news, there is nothing we can do but wait for others to act. Wishing and hoping won’t change the outcome will it? But with other matters like the burden of the past that had been weighing me down, we can control and change the course by letting go and moving on.
