Letting go...



Letting go doesn’t mean giving up, but rather accepting that there are things that cannot be.
-- Anon


Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure.

I agree with the anon. Sometimes it's hard to let go and it leaves one with a feeling of defeat, but some things just cannot be, as simple as that.

Greetings from London.

"When you learn to accept instead of expect, you will have fewer disappointments."

Sounds like a similar thought. Very nice

I dread the day I have to let go of our daughter and watch her spread her wings on her own. Remind me to breathe then, please!

It makes me wonder if there is an even deeper meaning. For me there is...
