Letting go...

by rosenvegas (writer), Las Vegas, NV, April 25, 2011

Reaching that point happens without you knowing it. No warning its coming. No escaping when it arrives.

I sit knowing what I need to be doing,

should be doing,

have to do.

I sit knowing what will happen if I don't.

The first step,

then the next.

I sit knowing I don't want those things to happen.

Can't afford it.

Not emotionally,

not financially.

Yet I sit here continuing to do nothing.

Nothing but think about why.

Think about where?

Where did inspiration go?

Where did determination and drive fleed to?

It no longer resides with me.

It has moved on, its time spent with me.

So I sit waiting for time to pass.

For the inevitable to happen.

No longer controling my destiny.


Because I've wasted my energy on the things that don't matter.

Nothing is left for the things that do.

Too tired to care.

Bill.....nice way to put it....been under an enormous amount of stress the past week and I realized today I just needed to not care so much about it so I could move forward. Caring was holding me back.

Cher - thank you for your feedback. For me, its not sad to realize caring is actually whats holding you back. Sometimes we have to let go, to move forward. Today...I let go.

Feelings and emotions can hamper the essential progress of a person who is in the moment of turmoil. We all have been there without any safety net I'm sure.

Letting go allows you to see your way clear of the problem, the solution was always there.

Great post...
