Holding On and Letting Go

IMG_9558

What I see is my niece holding on to her cat. What I remember is that cat did not want to be held on to! What I know is I do the same thing all too often – hold on tight to things that want to be let go. And sometimes I don’t hold tight enough to the things I should. But it’s a brand new year, and a good time to evaluate what I hold dear, what I need to put more time and energy into, and what I need to just let go.

Cheers to a new year

and another chance

for us to get it right.

A New Year

I used a picture of Amanda to start this blog, so I thought I would use a picture of her to start off the new year. This time, instead of being in a bathing suit and surrounded by spouts of water, she's in her jacket and surrounded by twinkle lights. What I see is my niece, lit up with the green glow of holiday lights. What I think is that time passes and seasons change, so we must enjoy where we are at the given moment.
