This post is so much. I just had to say goodbye to two of my daughters. Not for good, just for now. One to college, one across town. We’d enjoyed a lovely day together but it was time for them to go back to where they belong.

It hit hard because I don’t know where life will take them. How far from me, literally and figuratively. Letting go of the future … the weight this concept lifted from my heart left an airy, cool spot where it has sat for so long.

I cannot change the flux, and although I’ve told myself I’m great at letting go of the past, and of attachment, I still clutched to the future. Being able to see things through in a way to benefit me.

No longer, April. I cannot begin to thank you enough for what enlightenment I’m carrying now that I’ve read this post. Not just read it … but absorbed it. That spot is still raw and exposed, where my expectation lived. But it’s there no more. I’m beginning to see that there could be something even more beautiful in a world of flux.

So, here we go.
