There are many forms of letting go, there is letting go of the past and any/all pain that it may have. There is letting go of relationships that are no longer in alignment with our self. There is letting go of old dreams, material things, etc.
These all present a different level of self-commitment, a commitment to continuously grow, just like a flower. In order for the flower to come into full bloom, it had to first let go of its shell(the seed), then it had to come out of the dirt, then its bud, until finally, it was ready to fully bloom.
My process has been similar, I’ve had to let go of relationships, old habits, material things, and most recently, my hometown, I know that I still have a way to go before it all unfolds, how much further? I don’t know, but I do know is that I must keep going, one day at a time, one step at a time, trusting, surrendering, and having faith.
