Series of Letting Go and Moving On

February 12, 2017 Leave a comment Go to comments

Life is a series of letting go and moving on.

Let go of the need to be perfect in all aspects of your life; such is unrealistic anyway.  Move on by accepting that imperfection is a part of who you are, which, ironically, is sometimes the very reason why you are a better person.  Acknowledging and embracing that imperfection reminds you to be humble, less judgmental of others, and more open to allow God to use such as an opportunity for Him to show you how much He loves you.

Let go of pride and the need to be right all the time.  Move on by accepting that you could also be wrong, that you don’t have a monopoly of the truth, and that there will be many people out there who are better than you that are worthy of recognition and respect as much as you, if not more.

Let go of the desire to have someone special in your life – most especially when this want for someone is already consuming you.  Move on by making yourself that special person you deserve to have in your life.  And perhaps someday, someone who is truly right for you will see that, too – and that person will be the one to endeavor to be a part of your life.

Let go of holding on to a cause that’s already lost.  Time is limited, and you can only do so much with what little time you think you have in this world.  Move on by re-focusing your energy to those endeavors that are a better investment of your time because you can still do something about it.

Let go of whatever obsession you might harbor with youth and beauty.  There’s a time for everything.  Youth and beauty never really lasts forever; it will be taken away from you whether you like it or not.  By all means when you have it, enjoy it for as long as it lasts.  But move on by striving to age not just gracefully but also grace-fully.

Let go of the people you love when their time comes.  It’s not right to keep them in this valley of tears when they have finally earned their turn to go home to God.  Cherish them while they’re still with you.  And when it’s time, move on by living your life to the fullest even if they’re no longer present in your life, because that’s what they would want for you, and that’s how best you can honor their memory.

Finally, let go of your life and everyone and everything in this world when your own time comes.  Nothing and nobody lasts forever, and that, for better or worse, includes you.  You don’t own your life and you can’t take anything with you when you go; your life and everyone and everything in it came from God and belongs to God, and when the time comes to return it, such will happen.  Move on with the peace of mind that in place of what you’ll lose in this world, you’re getting something so much better, because God wants to give you a reward beyond all understanding that will truly satisfy the very depths of your soul; you’ll finally have the happiness you’ve long desired for all of eternity.
