Holding On


Last night I watched the Netflix show, “Tidying Up” and had the urge to size down some more items in my closet instead of the lesson plan as I should have.

One of the hardest parts of getting rid of items are the sentiments attached to them. Even when there are items you don’t desire to keep, letting go of such items may actually make you come to terms with the reality of a situation.

That happened for me.

Sometimes relationships end and there’s no real closure: a sudden death, parting of ways, etc.

Now, this item is the closest you have to saying goodbye.

Goodbye to the parent, brother, sister, friend.

Goodbye to the hope.

Goodbye to the pain.

the sadness.

the old you.


“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead,  I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 3:13-14)
