Holding On & Letting Go – by Delina Hill-Brooker

Hold on Let Go

 

There are times in life when you absolutely must hang on. Like, when you’re going through a rough patch, and even when you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel; it’s there.
There are other times when you have to let go. Like, when your children are growing up and they HAVE to fly away from the nest.

There are times when you may not know if it’s time to hold on, or to let go and that’s when you have to pray about it.

If you hold on for too long it could not only hurt you, but it could also hurt what you’re holding on to; the same thing goes for letting go too quickly. It’s a delicate balance that we can only hope that we get right. Both can be hard to do, yet freeing when you do it and when the outcome is favorable.

This year I’m learning what to hold on to and when to let go. It hurts and feels good at the same time, but then it leaves room for more things.

Holding on, and letting go is my lesson for this season.

    Letting go is a process, and there are several stages in the process. First stage is allowing the person or thing to have a voice, listen to their opinions and thoughts. If it’s a thing, you have to listen, with your heart. For instants, you don’t like your job but you’re not sure if you should move on. This is a process that has to began in your heart, and you have to trust your feelings. When it’s a person, they’ll let you know when it’s time to let go. Second stage, let them make their own decision in small non life threatening situations and then allow them to handle the out come of the choice. Third don’t offer advice or help unless they ask you. Finally pray at all stages of the process. Now, realse them from your hand but never from your heart and allow their lives to begain. always be there, if needed
