Letting Go

This breast cancer journey is teaching me about letting go of things especially in terms of relationships. Some of my relationships seem to be dying right now. Others are being born or are in rebirth. I think it's because you start asking yourself questions that you may never have had the reason or courage to ask. If I've learned nothing else in the past 7 weeks then I've learned this: life begins to be distilled down to essentials. What you eat, what you do, what/who you give yourself to and what you take the time for are amongst these. You decide what to keep and what to let go.

There is no logic in how I've decided.  Rather it's that you find yourself listening to that piece of your heart/intuition that has always been there, but you tended to ignore in favor of reasons you had created. You are open to sharing pieces of yourself you haven't before and receiving pieces of others that you may have not been ready for....

So today I'm grateful for those persons who are with me on this journey and that those who will no longer be I can let go with understanding.
