Holding On to Letting Go (for Valentine's Day)

 

Holding On to Letting Go


Today, I will let go of...

Anger
Bitterness
Malice
Rage
Unforgiveness
Rigid dreams
Lofty expectations
Demands
The past
Failures
Others' mistakes
The old plan
What does not work
Victimhood
What was

I will hold on to...

New ways
New vision
The Slinky
Silly Putty
Fresh thoughts
Fresh flowers
Innovative ideas
Creative contemplation
The big cookie at the mall
The laughter of children
Toys & Crayons
Malted milk balls
Freshly Shaken Snow Globes
One Warm Puppy...

And, all things that make me smile!


p. 102 in Handling Difficult Holidays: the Gracious Path to Overcoming Painful Times by Dr. Jane N. Geiger, M.A.
