Letting Go ... and ... Holding On


 I just came back from an amazing nature hike
through the hills of O Neil.

I was able to reflect on our
summer coming to an end 

and

how far I've come in learning how to

hold on and let go.


 I have mourned for the passing of time
when my kids were 'mine'.

I have let go of regret and resentment
of feeling I had over invested in my children
at too high of a price to myself....

instead I realize 
I did what needed to be done at the time...
and I did it well
and I was fully invested
so now....


 I can more easily
let go
and hold on....
and see
what's next...

starting my career over 
at my age is 
humbling to say the least...

but I knew 15 years ago
when I made the decision to be a mom full time...
that this day would come

and I could do it
no matter how hard

because what I couldn't live with
was the feeling of ever having
short changed my children....

So today is a good day...
because

I have learned to appreciate 
my time of transition

to still hold on to my kids
while letting go..,

to welcome the challenge of

what's next....

yes, 
to everything there is truly a season....


wishing you love and joy
as you style your life
