Closing cycles…Welcome 2011…

Closing cycles. Not because of pride, incapacity or arrogance but simply because that no longer fits your life.
Closing cycles, shutting doors, ending chapters….whatever name we give it, what matters is to leave in the past the moments in life that have finished.
Things pass and the best we can do is to let them really go away.

As always…pertinent…relevant…inspiring…lines by Paulo Coelho.

Easier said than done , for sure…but doable…when we put our minds to it! Putting our minds to it is the hard part…we waver…we justify and have reasons for vacillating…we let guilt take over and hesitate…we let others influence us and falter. But if we decide to let go…to detach and distance oneself from cycles that need to be closed…then we can begin the onward journey and make room for newer chapters and stages in our life…this is only possible when we accept…decide…release…detach ourselves in all earnestness and seriousness from the past…memories…relationships…mindset…that pull us down and back…

Releasing the past…stages…aspects…relationships…positions…we have maintained and carried…but have become painful to maintain, is a serious and arduous task. Memories are painfully hard to release, mindsets are distressingly difficult to alter, relationships are cloyingly unpleasant to retract from…but once the will to do so is there the actual break is surprisingly easy.

Closing chapters…finishing one to be able to start the next with a clean slate…trying not to hold on to specific elements…being able to let go…then being able to cut the cord…and finally to complete and close that circle…so as to be able to move freely…ultimately, to be able to embrace and welcome the next cycle of life…

Welcome 2011…
