If You Want to Come out on the Other Side

Often the thing that makes us crazy is the fear of losing (or never being able to regain) something we think is essential to our happiness.

We often fight, claw, scheme, plot, gamble, bargain with God, fret, worry, and despair in order to hold on to:

  • someone we love
  • our health
  • a job we think we’ve got to have
  • our youth
  • the money we have or want
  • prized possessions
  • our status or illusion of status

Ironically, the only path that will keep this pursuit from turning ugly is to let it go gracefully…whatever or whomever it is.

    This message sooooo applies to  me.  I will save this one in a folder for future reference.  Boy, have I kicked and screamed and schemed to hang onto things in my life that I thought I could not live without.  Looking back now I see it so clearly.  Thanks again for your two minute tune up!!!

    • Oh, Kathy, you are such a good friend! Thank you for saying just the right things. So glad that we met and that the Universe is using us for each other.
