Letting Go Takes Love

To let go does not mean to stop caring,
***it means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off,
***it's the realization I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable,
***but allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means
***the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another,
***it's to make the most of myself.
To let go is not to care for,
***but to care about.
To let go is not to fix,
***but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,
***but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,
***but to allow others to affect their destinies.
To let go is not to be protective,
***it's to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny,
***but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue,
***but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires,
***but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody,
***but to try to become what I dream I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past,
***but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to fear less and love more
*******and
To let go and to let God, is to find peace !
Remember: The time to love is short

The only one I don't agree 100% wih is his one;

(To let go is not to cut myself off)

In some cases...cutting oneself off temporarily is for the best...just my opinion.


But I am so glad I read this...I used to keep it on my fridge...thank you!

(((Nyte))) - wow, I've missed you! You and the kids are always in my prayers, though.

Will have to print this out and put it on my "special" wall, where I have things that speak to me or just mean a lot to me.

Love, hugs, and prayers,

Amy
