My best friend on the island, Rebecca, is moving back to the mainland the end of this month. I’m counting the days – 7 more days, 6 more days – the time is passing quickly, like time does when we are trying to hold onto it.
I’m feeling the fleeting nature of each moment, and trying to preserve each moment…each memory.
Although I devoutly believe we will continue our relationship, we are kindred spirits; I struggle with my inner urge to keep this moment PERMANENT. If only I could push a pause button and keep things the SAME!
As I help her pack and her rooms become empty of any signs of Rebecca, with a throat achy with tears, I begin, one box at a time, to let go.
In the letting go of what is, miraculously (I believe it’s in the Course of Miracles that states a miracle is – a change of perception) I begin to experience a wave of energy…could it be excitement? Why yes it is!
As my focus changes from my need for sameness, “It will never be the same. I won’t be able to hang out with Rebecca on a weekly basis or spend holidays with her.”
To a focus on the unexplored, “I wonder what adventures will have together once she moves? Wow, I’ll be able to visit her for days at a time, that’s something I’ve never been able to do! We may even travel together. And she’ll visit me.”
I’m discovering that underneath my sentimental emotions, is a spirited eagerness looking forward to the NEW moments we will share.
I have to let go of the old to let in the new. Hmm…where else does this apply in my life? What else, or where else, am I trying to hold onto? By trying to hold onto the OLD, what NEW, am I keeping OUT of my life?
How about you? Is there anything you are trying to hold onto? I would love to hear from you, please comment in the comment section.
Thanks so much for taking the time to read my posts. I appreciate YOU!
With spirited eagerness for NEW,
