Day 9    Sometimes it is harder....

Letting go is a kind act, I believe, to both help ourselves and each other.  It is at times difficult for me to let go of a thought, idea, belief, etc....  Buddha spoke of meeting a buddha in the road and running him/her over.  Today, I am more aware of how this can affect my happiness as I can become stressed when I do not let go and hold onto feelings of self-righteousness, pain, anger etc.  I have read a book entitled Tuesday's with Maury which I highly recommend.  It is about a person with ALS, a terminal illness in which a person is unable to move, eat, and eventually has issues breathing.  During his months to year of loss, he allowed himself a half hour (I believe) to wallow in self-pity.  Sometimes like today, I find it important not to wallow and step out of the river of malcontent.  (Overdramatic, I know but like the word usage and symbolism. )   I wish sometimes, I could snap my finger and be all of a sudden enlightened in letting go.  Today, I continue the struggle and continue to hope.
