My computer decided to stop working last week. Even though all the work I had inside was not erased, it was impossible to access any of it. If I wanted to find a way to reach any of those files, I’d be charged a US$500 minimum for a backup on top of what I already would have to pay for fixing the computer and buying a new hard drive.
To make things even more complicated, I had an appointment booked for each day of the week and every single one of them required driving at least 1hr to get to it. I was busy, frustrated and mad at myself for not backing up some of my very important work. This is a type of letting go I wasn’t ready for, so I was forced to find a way to breath through it. It was as if life decided to test how much was I really understanding and accepting this whole “Trust and Let Go” phase.
Sometimes we’re just not prepared to leave behind certain things in our lives, but we have no control over it. We are left with trying to process our emotions and feelings around it.
This week’s post is in honor of all those things in life we don’t feel quite ready to “Let Go,” but have to do it anyway.
