I have to thank Katie over at Sweet Tater Blog for posting the following poem, which she found through a friend. After many months of not blogging, or reading my usual blogs, I turned on my computer tonight and found this. Coincidence? Probably not.

Let go of the ways you thought life would unfold
The holding of plans or dreams or expectations
Let it all go.
Save your strength to swim with the tide.
The choice to fight what is here before you now will only result
In struggle, fear and desperate attempts to flee from
the very energy you long for.
Let it go. Let it all go and
Flow with the grace that washed through your days
Whether you received it gently or with all your quills raised to defend against invaders.
Take this on faith:
The mind may never find the explanations that it seeks
But you will move forward nonetheless.
Let go and the wave’s crest will carry you to unknown shores beyond your wildest dreams or destinations.
Let it all go and find the place
Of rest and peace and certain transformation.

– Danna Faulds

We must let go of the image in our heads of how we feel life is supposed to be or we will continue to feel trapped by the box we have created around us.
