Sometimes a change will come as quick as an Earthquake totally changing the landscape of your life. Other times changes happen so slowly as to be almost imperceptible to the observer. Yet no matter the time they take, change is constant, and powerful, like a river carves a great canyon where none existed before, change affects your life each and every day.
I say this because there have been many changes over the past year for me to absorb. Experiencing the events happening in my life right not is the easy part, but for me to actually let all of the past go, that has been the hard part. Yet all things do change and all things do eventually end.
Even though I know that there was an ending many years ago, I still kept a hope alive that in time there would be a reconciliation in some way. I always wanted to make sure that I was available, should this moment arise. This thought has been stopping me from living life to its fullest, and the change that is taking place is that it ends today.
This is no monumental feat or grand accomplishment, in fact to all other people it will mean nothing at all. Yet to me it is the ultimate in letting go. I have forgiven, I have understood, but I have never let go, and it is time that I did.
So when you look at the world today, looking up at the clear blue sky, or later tonight seeing the moon hanging in front of its pitch black canvas, understand that in a small way, the world is different today than it was yesterday and a very small part of that is because it was finally time to let go and say goodbye to yesterday and accept the promise of the future.
