Sometimes you might have to give up (sacrifice) something or someone in your present life.  

It might be a relationship, a friendship, a material possession, emotional luggage, or a painful addiction.  The latter may involve the need to feel validated and loved through intimate encounters and extreme risk-taking. 

It might involve ‘living beyond your immediate needs,’ over extending your cash and credit lines to obtain crap which serves as fillers in your life; substitutes for that emotional void deep within.  

Starbucks, spontaneous shopping, sex-all of this can become an addiction.  That rush which gets you flying higher than a airliner to Manila but once you touchdown reality sinks in and you find yourself in a foreign place; privy to the hand of fate. 

You deserve rewarding yourself with a great latte, a new dress to impress, or a new accessory to match.  Just don’t let some random fling seduce you with some bling bling. 

This Moment of Letting Go requires you to release your past in order to embrace the present.  To see the simple beauty in the sunrise of a new dawn and the taste of new wine while walking on sunshine.  

Wherever you are in this moment, just let it be yours.

“Just let it be”


As a proud graduate of California State University, Chico with an earned BA degree in International Relations, Master of Arts degree in Public Policy, and a past study abroad participant at the University of Tuebingen, education has always been up front and center in both our family and my professional career. My blogging project is an eclectic work in progress and intended to increase global awareness through selections and stories of my studies and travels. As future global citizens we can seek first to understand one another through word pictures and engage our collective creative intellects to change our community; one blog at a time.
