Just Let Go

Monday, September 22, 2014

One tough lesson I’ve learned this year is this:
If people want to be a part of your life, they will be there. 
Period. End of story. It’s that simple.
Except, it’s not that simple. What I’ve struggled with is that I’ve literally never been happier in my entire life, and I want to share that happiness. I want to share this pure, beautiful, amazing happiness with people that are important to me. My friends, my family, people in the grocery store. But there are some that just don’t get it. Or maybe they do “get it”, but just don’t feel that same way. Either way, it does hurt to wonder why in the world wouldn’t they want to be a part of this? This amazingness that is in the form of a tiny human who can’t even speak yet.
But, such is life. Instead, let go. Let go of that feeling of wanting, and wishing, and hoping that other people feel the same way you do. Let go of that idea that your happiness is their happiness. 
Just. Let. Go.
And this is an everyday battle for me. I’m so happy and so thankful that people that I love get to experience this same joy that I get to wake up to everyday, but in the back of my mind I always think about those who aren’t there. And I want to be there. 
And what I’ve come to realize is that my heart is already full to capacity. Bursting, even. Sharing Lucca’s love with this world is my greatest accomplishment, and being present and happy with our life and with the people who are a part of it, is enough. Holding on to those thoughts does nothing.

Just let go…
