On the emotional cost of letting go

Sometimes finding our courage to live the rhythm of life is sad and painful.

This isn’t only about letting go of the things holding us back but also laying down our attachment to things that have been lovely and good.

Not holding on too tightly, yet honouring what is precious.

Because the rhythm of life has living momentum and requires the whole of us to be present in its flow.

Even in our sadness.

~ Yesterday, we had to let go of one of our youngsters who we were especially fond of, who had developed an untreatable jaw problem.
