Letting It Go

I knew I had to let go of a lot of things, but it is always the hardest part. Letting go means tearing yourself away from all that you thought you had and knew. So we hold on and we hold on tightly because it hurts so much less to live in the moments you pick and choose. But when reality comes in and hits you like a lightning bolt, you feel all of it all over again as if you're just living it for the first time. I think to let go we need a little glimpse of hope that everything is going to be okay, and every time I look at my "let go" giving key, I remind myself that letting go can be something to look forward too.
