She let go. Without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of the fear. She let go of the judgments. She let go of the confluence of opinions swarming around her head. She let go of the committee of indecision within her. She let go of all the ‘right’ reasons. Wholly and completely, without hesitation or worry, she just let go.
She didn’t ask anyone for advice. She didn’t read a book on how to let go. She didn’t search the scriptures. She just let go. She let go of all of the memories that held her back. She let go of all of the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. She let go of the planning and all of the calculations about how to do it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go. She didn’t journal about it. She didn’t write the projected date in her Day-Timer. She made no public announcement and put no ad in the paper. She didn’t check the weather report or read her daily horoscope. She just let go.
She didn’t analyze whether she should let go. She didn’t call her friends to discuss the matter. She didn’t do a five-step Spiritual Mind Treatment. She didn’t call the prayer line. She didn’t utter one word. She just let go.
No one was around when it happened. There was no applause or congratulations. No one thanked her or praised her. No one noticed a thing. Like a leaf falling from a tree, she just let go.
There was no effort. There was no struggle. It wasn’t good and it wasn’t bad. It was what it was, and it is just that.
In the space of letting go, she let it all be. A small smile came over her face. A light breeze blew through her. And the sun and the moon shone forevermore…”
Am I ever happy that I re-subscribed to the monthly Ipsy Glam Bag! I came home last night to a shiny pink envelope of new beauty products! There is nothing better than getting a goody bag in the mail. Especially because I rarely get mail anymore unless its bills or government stuff.
This month’s bag is is a little piece of Spring with the Floral Fantasy collection.
I am in love with the Guess Summer 2015 Collection! I got a sneak preview of their new lookbook and had to share my favourites. This collection will be in stores May 2015. I love that they’ve brought back some of the classic pieces from the ’90’s. Yes I had a denim jumpsuit. Yes I might rock one again this year. I love the flirty floral patterns, the bright teal and coral colours and the cute dresses that can go from the office to date night.
I’ve been listening to Florence + The Machine a lot lately and this morning saw the announcement that she was headlining the very first “Bestival Toronto” on Toronto Island June 12-13. That should be a great show and I hope we get to go.
This weekend was a pretty great one. Jason and I had a quiet but fun Friday night at home and then Saturday I had a baby shower for my cousin and then ended up at the Ceili Cottage for Steph’s birthday. It was a really fun time, I saw a bunch of girls that I hadn’t seen in years. We were in the Yurt, which was a pretty interesting and funny party room.
I am so ready for Spring to get here and hopefully this month starts to ease on the deep freeze we’ve been experiencing. It’s hard to get motivated to do anything in the cold. I have completely abandoned my Yoga practice and any thoughts of going outside if I don’t absolutely have to. It’s going to be a pretty exciting month I think. There is something brewing in the air and I feel a big change coming on.
In other Toronto news, the police found the people who dug the “Mystery Tunnel” and determined that they just wanted to dig a tunnel and had no ill intent, so case is closed. Glad the hysteria level didn’t increase to Fox News proportions.
Tonight I’m going to an event at the Ripley’s Aquarium with some girls from work and I’m pretty excited about it. I hope we get to wander around a bit and see all the marine life!
