Today I bumped into a quote over at the right brain planner: “I believe the person I can become is worth the risk of letting go of who I’ve been.”
I know swans are ‘ugly ducklings’ when they get out of their egg. Greyish. They take time to grow, to change and let go who they’ve been to become what they are meant to be. For most of my teenage years I have felt like the ugly duckling. Like the odd one out. The past few years there has been a change. I’ve changed. Though I feel like I’m not quiet there yet. I wouldn’t dare call myself a swan, because they posses a kind of air I will never have. But I do feel that I, just like the ducklings, have to shed what I’ve been all these years to become what I know is inside me. I’ve always felt like that I could do more, be more than that I am right now. I just didn’t know how to get there. Now I do.
In order to stay true to my dreams I have to let go. Learn to let go of the things that are oh so important to me, when in fact, they are not. I need to stop fussing about the little things and look ahead. A little like driving a car, looking ahead and anticipating on what is coming. Not stop when something goes wrong, there’s simply no time.
So here’s my challenge, my own lesson I have to learn. Let go. Take a risk, and let go.
