Day 9... Through the Lens of Grace

Day 9... Post-it

Can't remember
Can't recall
Who was I
supposed to call?
Grocery lists
Things to do
Don't forget
Pick up the crew
Watch and learn
Look and see
Write it down
Make life easy
Stuck to my desk
Stuck to the phone
welcome to
the post-it zone

Before we ended the call I asked her...

Do you know what you need to do?

And although she laughed as she responded, I wasn't totally convinced

So after we hung up, I grabbed a post-it

scribbled a note
took a picture
and texted it to her

it asked again
only this time also provided the answer just to be sure...
"Do you know what you need to do? Let it go"

Let go of...

distraction
disappointment
distress

Let go of...
all of the things that try to

slow us down
wear us down
tear us down

Let go of...

that thing
that fear
that reason

that is holding you in bondage and shackling you with the inability to

move forward
move on
move past

the unrealistic and unsolicited expectations and judgments that others have placed on you

And as we mature

we also learn

when to fight
when to hold on
when to just let it go!
