“To let go isn’t to forget, not think about, or ignore.
It doesn’t leave feelings of anger, jealousy, or regret.
Letting go isn’t about winning or losing.
It’s not about pride. It’s not about how you appear,
and it’s not obsession or dwelling on the past.
Letting go isn’t blocking memories or
thinking sad thoughts, and doesn’t leave
emptiness, hurt, or sadness.
It’s not about giving in or giving up.
Letting go isn’t about loss and it’s not about defeat.
To let go is to cherish the memories,
but to overcome and move on.
It is having an open mind and confidence in the future.
Letting go is learning and experiencing and growing.
To let go is to be thankful for the experiences that
made you laugh, made you cry, and made you grow.
It’s about all that you have, all that you had,
and all that you will soon gain.
Letting go is having the courage to accept change
and the strength to keep moving.
Letting go is growing up.
It is realizing that the heart can sometimes be the most potent remedy.
To let go is to open a door, to clear a path,
and set yourself free.”

“People of character do the right thing,
not because they think it will change the world,
but because they refuse to be changed by the world.”
-Michael Josephson

“We are born to love as we are born to die,
and between the heartbeats of these two mysteries
lies tangled undergrowth of our tiny lives.
There is nowhere to go but through.
And so we walk, lose, and lose again,
in the mapless wilderness of love.”
