“To Let Go” — Food for thought

The following anonymous quote came with the last Hospice survey that surviving family members get. It is just a nice reminder for all ‘imperfect’ humans. Enjoy!

“To ‘let go’…
…does not mean to stop caring; it means I can’t do it for someone else.
…is not to cut myself off; it’s the realization that I can’t control another.
…is not to enable; but to allow learning from natural consequences.
…is to admit powerlessness; which means the outcome is not in my hands.
…is not to try to change or blame another; it’s to make the most of myself.
…is not to care for; but to care about.
…is not to fix; but to be supportive.
…is not to judge; but to allow another to be a human being.
…is not to be in the middle, arranging all the outcomes; but to allow others to affect their own destinies.
…is not to be protective; it’s to permit another to face reality.
…is not to deny; but to accept.
…is not to nag, scold or argue; but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
…is not to adjust everything to my desires; but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
…is not to regret the past; but to live and grow for the future.
…is to fear less and love more.”

Best Blessings of Love, Light, Laughter,
