She Let Go. {Poem}

She let go.

She let go. Without a thought 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 or worry, she just let go.

She didn’t ask anyone for advice.

She didn’t read a book on how to let go.

She didn’t search the scriptures.

She just let go.

She let go of all of the memories that held her back.

She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward.

She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.

She didn’t promise to let go.

She didn’t journal about it.

She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer.

She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper.

She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope.

She just let go.

She didn’t analyze whether she should let go.

She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter.

She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment.

She didn’t call the prayer line.

She didn’t utter one word.

She just let go.

No one was around when it happened.

There was no applause or congratulations.

No one thanked her or praised her.

No one noticed a thing.

Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.

There was no effort.

There was no struggle.

It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad.

It was what it was, and it is just that.

In the space of letting go, she let it all be.

A small smile came over her face.

A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…

Im not sure what its about. My wife and I are seperated. We’re both just kinda sad.

Cant stay cant quite leave. Consumed with doubt. Is this about making a final decision? ??

This happened to me after I had a stroke in May 2015. I survived and when I woke up from the brain surgery, all of my fear and anxiety had left me. I let it all go. I have made mistakes since, I risked having a relationship that didn’t end well – empath with a narcissist…. but I forgave both myself and him quickly, I let the anger and pain go. I learned more about myself, which is a continuous path in our lives. I am committed to still taking risks in life – re travel, moving to another country (my big dream), in love and in relationships in general. When the realisation of your own mortality truly hits you, your eyes open. You see how much time you have wasted in fear and anxiety or anger and pain. I just let it go….. and when I need to, I let it go again. We are not perfect, we are human beings who still make mistakes, who still feel all of those feelings. It is not a one time thing. It is a daily thing sometimes. But I do it – because the feeling of peace and knowing that if I keep moving forward, the universe will take me where I need to go, is worth it. xx
