Earlier today I ran across a note I’d made at some point. I can’t recall where I heard it, and unfortunately I didn’t jot that down. The note was, “The same amount of strength it took to take it, is the same amount it takes to let it go.”
That seems like such a perfect summation of letting go – of whatever you’re holding that you need to part with. Unfortunately, it’s a little harder to do than a simple statement would lead you to believe.
I like the echoes of Newton’s laws of physics in that statement. Of course, I have no idea what Mr. Newton was trying to move past.
