Reverb 10: Day 5: Let Go

Prompt: Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

I’m actually in a multi-year letting go process of some soured relationships from the past.  It’s proving more difficult than I thought.  I don’t think about this person for weeks or maybe months at a time, and yet when I do all of the previous mindsets come back. I guess the brain is good at that… freezing mindsets related to relationships and then unfreezing them when necessary.  It’s why I can visit a friend I haven’t seen in 10 years and feel like nothing has changed.  And so maybe that bodes poorly for my ability to “heal” or even to forgive and forget regardless of the amount of time that passes.

And yet, I do feel like I’m letting go on some nano-scale.  Like maybe how the body replaces one cell at a time until the whole body is new cells every 7 years.  Nothing faster or more productive than that, though.

  1. That’s a really interesting metaphor for letting go – how the cells in the body are completely replaced every 7 years. It got me to thinking about the one who got away – you know that person from your past who you loved for as long as you can remember? Everyone’s got one of those right?

    Thanks for the perspective – and thanks even more for helping Gwen & Co. with Reverb10…and for 750words.com…and for Health Month. Basically for everything!

  2. Love the connection you made between emotional healing and the physical healing of the body over 7 years. Really made me think about emotional healing I need to concentrate on in 2011

  3. I found you through Reverb 10.
    Healing of any kind requires cultivated patience. Oh – but I so wish it didn’t!

  4. I know what you mean about letting go on a nano-scale.. once cell at a time!
    It’s been a big year for letting go for me.
