Beginning With An Ending - Holding On and Letting Go

'All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.'*
Havelock Ellis, 1859-1939, British physician and psychologist

Interesting statement; enlightening to ponder at this New Year juncture. Regarded thoughtfully
it can vastly improve the quality of your life.
Hold on to: creativity, family, rituals, patience, health....Let go of: worry, grudges, material things complaints...Think about it.

What would you like to hold on to and let go of for 2011?

For years, my family and I have picked Angel Cards (Kathy Tyler, Joy Drake, 1981) as reflections on life to be lived. Their intention is to renew our spiritual connections, to set goals, to maintain balance, to live a full life... for times gone by. And so, for this 2011...

'We'll drink a cup of kindness yet for Auld Lang Syne.' Robert Burns, Scottish songwriter, 1788

Peace to All!

*A heartfelt thank -you to my sister-in-law, Rosie, for forwarding this inspirational message along. Love Love Love to you!
