Letting Go

I caught a glimpse of someone yesterday that was of some importance in days long past.  My niece had come by and we went out for a late lunch and then stopped at Kohls for a bit of light window shopping.  And as we turned a corner there he was.  Years ago I declared no more, but as I walked by I wondered if he would sense that I was near and turn. Thankfully no.  He appeared aged and diminished and I moved by without incident or awareness.  From a distance I studied him a bit and then shook my head and moved on.

Sometimes I realize that something still lingers within me that I need to release.  Then the Universe sends a sign or reminder,
"say good-bye to the old and hello to the new".  I have always had trouble with trust issues and this one individual contributed to some of those insecurities.  And just like that I realize, what it was then is not what it is now and I can let go.  I processed some of that lingering yuckiness last night and now in the light of day I know I truly can let that go.
The Fairy has her feet planted in a flower and I think today calls for a pedicure. If I am starting in a new direction might as well have a new foot do.

MAGICAL MESSAGES from the fairies

  1. I wonder how many times folk have googled not themselves, but that old flame?
    I'm going to get my very first pedicure this week. A little pick me up before I head out to the University at Salt Lake to have my eyes put under the big world scope of this disease. I'm thinking orange polish is in order. Act brave be brave?

    1. Orange is a bold color. That's seems like a good choice. Sending you a big hug as you head out to the University.

  2. It is amazing the healing that can come from distance and time passing when it comes to relationships. I have had that same experience, then running into them and thinking, "wow, they got old." And once I realized the laws of nature applied to them, it was easier to let bygones be bygones.

    1. I know the laws of Nature apply to me also. Sometimes leaving the past behind can be a bit of challenge, but when the past doesn't look the same, it is a bit of relief.
