Letting go & Enjoying a lovely date

Thursday, August 15, 2013

It says:
To let go doesn't mean to stop caring. It means I can't do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off. It's the realization that I can't control another.
To let go is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.
To let go is to admit powerlessness which means, the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another.I can only change myself.
To let go is not to care for, but to care about.
To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge,but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle, arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to effect their own outcomes.
To let go is not to be protective, it is to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny, but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold or argue, but to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desire, but to take each day as it comes and cherish the moment.
To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone, but to become the best I can be.
To let go is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less, Trust in God more, and freely give the love he's given to me.

This is huge for me. This says everything I am feeling inside. It makes me feel solid with my decisions. I am really glad I stumbled across this today.

In other news, the date last night was phenomenal. Went for a walk with the dogs in the river, enjoyed the sunshine, got to know each other. Went back to his place and had a delicious cocktail, watered the garden and ate some of his fresh veggies. Talked and flirted a ton. He took me for dinner across the street and we played pool (forgot he was a pro in a league so he had to teach me, I was pretty pathetic but he was cool with it), and the rest is history (or maybe that's all the details I want to share...). I am floored by our compatibility. I am in awe of how chivalrous he is. In love with how genuine he is. Enthralled with how interesting he is. I am just happy, and can't wait to get to know him better. I am not sure what the future holds, but everything happens for a reason, right? I'm happy just going with the flow and enjoying each day (taking each day as it comes and cherishing the moment - as it says above).

    The "Let goisms" (inventing my own word here) is awesome and so many of those are things that I should remember right now in my own life. So happy for you on the new relationship!
