‘The Art of Letting Go’

The Art of Letting Go MAIN

 

Letting go is an extremely familiar concept to all of us. We read about it. We write about it. We talk about it. It’s a notion that we’ve always known, yet we find hard to do.

I was the same as everyone else and also much worse. I’ve always been the kind of person who can’t stop thinking about things. I overanalyze because I’m afraid that I might miss an important detail. I ponder hard, so I can make sense of things that bother me. I drain my brain, believing that I have to figure out things by myself because I can’t count on anyone.

First, I don’t want you to think of those as wrong. There’s beauty in the art of gripping. In holding on so tight. It makes our life bound and held together.

But this year, a wondrous thing happened to me. Someone crossed paths with mine and that has changed me tremendously in ways I don’t even know is possible for me.

No, it isn’t the kind of relationship that you may be thinking.

He has no idea at all with how big of a change his existence has brought upon me. I wish I can tell him how I learned to totally let go of my grip on some things because not everything is meant to be controlled. How I learned to actually breathe because not everything is meant to be ruminated upon. How I learned to shrug off because not everything is meant to be answered.

It’s a big deal because my transformation was almost close to impossible, yet it still happened. Looking back, I almost cry realizing the big leap I have made. I have reached a state that’s much healthier for me.

And I wish the same thing to you.

To you who’s already getting tired of rationalizing everything that’s going on, the art of letting go is just around the corner.

Be open to it.

‘Ellipsis’

Ellipsis MAIN

There will come a day
when your mind
will stop thinking
of the reasons why…

There will come a day
when your heart
will stop resisting
the low rhythms of life…

There will come a day
when you learn
to let go of your grip
on things you can’t control…

There will come a day
when you have no words
nor logical thoughts,
and it’s totally fine.

8 Things To Remember In Following Your Dreams

‘TO BE YOUR LIGHT’

     I don’t want to be someone who just brightens your daily life. That’s too easy and that’s too common. A lot of things can do that for you―music, arts, sceneries, pets…you name it all. Instead, I want to be the light that you seek out when everything else seems dark. Not that I want you to rely on me as your foundation—it’s not healthy. But it’s because I want you to believe that voids aren’t permanent. There’s always hope. And if being your light is what it takes to make you believe that there is hope, then I’m ready to be yours.
