365 Days, Day 228

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be (Lao Tzu)

In the end these things matter most:

How well did you love?

How fully did you love?

How deeply did you learn to let go?


We saw Black Swan today. It was a very intense, powerful and somewhat disturbing film. What made the strongest impressions on me was the theme of letting go of control, to embrace wild abandonment and living in the moment. By letting go, we become what we might be.

If I have to be brutally honest with myself, I realise that my life is rather controlled. I like control more than I care to admit. I like to be in control of myself and the situations I am involved in. I like perfection in [most] things. Part of me – the Black Swan - likes things that have imperfections.

So… new beginnings: learn to let go more. Learn to embrace freedom of the moment more often; I don’t have to be perfect, I am allowed to make mistakes and do things with wild abandonment. More passion for life!

Let go. Release your inner {Black} Swan…
