Let go. Let go. Let go.

The whisper that’s been trying to teach me throughout my entire life.

It’s always been that message.

The same lesson, over and over again, in a thousand different ways.

I started writing back when I was 19, and it helped me process everything I was going through. I started to let go, and little by little, things changed.

But then, I ran to the future instead.

Maybe if I lived in the world of dreams and what could be, I would be happier?

Wrong again.

The voice came back.

I learned that you could suffer from living in the future just as much as living in the past.

It doesn’t matter if it’s painted with possibility; there’s still one issue.

All you can be is “here.”

Your mind can wander to “there” as much as you let it.

But “there” doesn’t exist. You only have this moment…right here.

So that led me to this…

No matter what is going on in your life, you have a choice to make. Meet it with light or darkness. Love or fear.

The circumstances will change constantly.

Things will go up and down, and those situations you can’t control. But you can control what you do with those situations.

You can write the next pages of your story as you please.

So be here.

Come back when you drift.

This moment is yours.
