~Lao Tzu – When I let go of who I am, I become what might be.

I think this photo is a good representation of the quote. Looking back on my life I have had lots of moments where this quote is true. Most of the time it is in hindsight. I can remember a significant time about three years ago, my girlfriend of 4 years decided to move on and I wasn’t ready for that.

This particular relationship I had invested way more than any other relationship that I had previously. There was a lot of pain and hurt. Lots of fear of what is next. It was one of the darkest times of my life. I had spiraled down to a dark place. it was FRIGHTENING. I was at a point where I didn’t know what to do. I called a counselor and started doing some inner work. Letting go was a big theme over the last 3 years. I still wrestle with what is next or what is my future but I look back at all the things I had to make choices on letting go and that gave me so much space to become what I am today,
