“How do you want it to feel when this is over?” Lauren, my life coach asked.
“Like flying," I replied.
And thus began the process of letting go of everything that I didn’t want to take with me into 2015.
My journey to Letting Go didn’t come easily. It came at the hands of a lost job, the end of my marriage, a lot of wine to forget, countless tears on my pillow, and a continuous mask of happiness over what was pure broken-heartedness underneath. I’m incredibly well-versed in the art of the mask, the charades. So well-versed, in fact, that it was one of the top things on my list of things I knew I needed to let go of.
My list eventually would reach 25. One by one, I wrote them on a rock with a big, bold Sharpie: each thing that I wanted to release before 2015 showed up.
