Flying Artichokes…


I’ve had a difficult time with the blog today…nothing would come…no ideas…nothing…I think that’s because I don’t want to write about what’s truly on my heart…

Letting go

I know…I’ve talked about it before…several times…and that’s because…it’s a process…it isn’t an event…it’s not like my nursing diploma…I can’t hang it on the wall and it’s over…it comes in layers…and…they show up at unexpected times…in unexpected ways…

I’ve had a new layer show up this week…and…I’m letting it go…looking at the pain that it brought…begrudgingly thanking it for the clarity that it brings…and giving it wings to fly away…

What I’m finding to be true about the layers…they get thinner as I peel through them…which makes me think of the artichoke again…the outer leaves are the toughest…the prickliest…the most uncomfortable to deal with…with each layer…the leaves become more delicate and tender…

Letting go

Sometimes I wonder…how many times…how many ways…and…then…sometimes…I just let those concerns go…

  1. Oh, that phrase “letting go” is one of the most dreaded phrases in the universe to me. What, again?!!! Whether it’s more clutter, or more foods off my newly diabetic diet, or more ancient issues and leaking emotions, it’s all the same – pure nuisance. My brain is weary from the constant onslaught of more “layers” that need to be peeled off and then more crap that needs to be let go of. Maybe I need to let go of the letting go for awhile. Wings are so hard to find sometimes.

    • Oh Sharon…I know what you mean…letting go can feel weary…but it is also freeing…easier to fly without all that stuff holding you down. I love your phrase…maybe I need to let go of the letting go for awhile…and I think there is truth to that…I know sometimes I try too hard…thanks for sharing!
