#IWD2017 Women’s Chronicles- Learn to Let Go

By  |  0 Comments

The other day I was disappointed. I felt like the truth I knew was replaced with lies. Well, I had to practically get myself out of it. Took to the wheels and drove my mind to thousands of miles a distance. Reflections of who I was, and who I am now, came flashing in. The act of knowing when to LET GO and the facts about what is really your own life, regardless of what others think is your life scared me.

So, there I was with all these random thoughts. Then I realized, as women we all go through them. We all have days we feel broken. We feel disappointed. We feel lost.

WHAT DO WE DO? DO WE DWELL ON THEM OR MOVE ON?

Most especially when it involves our fellow women, we NEVER seem to forget that HURT.

This might sound like forgiveness and certainly can be confused with yesterday’s write up. However, it is not. Still, I will agree that it is a continuation on the same path.

When we get betrayed, we expect that she must know better. Automatically, we build the fence and pull out the machetes. I DO THAT TOO! I have been a huge protector of myself for many years. To the point that, I hardly cry or if I do, I hate myself for it. But then I found out I was dying inside. I was losing out on friends. My peace was short-lived. My joy was limited.

Then I started refocusing my energy. I STARTED LETTING GO! I figured out that anytime I did, I became better. I became a finer version of myself. I achieved greater heights.I STOPPED BEEN AVERAGE! So crying became okay. Then laughter became my friend. Joy unspeakable became a tenant in my heart.

We can’t do everything right always. Nor can a sister have it together all the time. Nor can we be guaranteed of not getting hurt. Nevertheless, we can live beyond anything. As long as we choose to be.

So today I choose to cry when it’s necessary and please do the same too. After that, LET GO!

Choose the freedom of being your own boss. Choose to regulate your own life. Choose to walk away from all that anger.

CHOOSE YOU!!! LOVE YOU!! EMBRACE YOU!!! RISK LOVE!!! TAKE THAT NEXT STEP!!! OWN THE WORLD!!!

Until we learn to LET GO after forgiving someone, we will only be bandaging a wound that never heals.
