Dear Tender Heart                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Sometimes we forget that when we make big changes in our life...or when life makes big changes on  us.....even when they are very good changes....that we really do go through a grieving process of what was left behind in the change....even if what we left  behind was not good for us.

It is confusing...but it is real. When we resist it, we suffer so much more than we need to. There will always be good memories and good parts to the past seasons of our lives...even if it is a  good thing that the seasons are over. There was a reason we stayed, even if  the reason was not right for us. Sooo...when things are gone that we were  comfortable with once...we grieve them, and that is ok.

Let yourself  grieve so that you can get over it and move on...so that you can enjoy where you are now. Don't try to stuff it away or pretend in never happened. Don't  feel guilty that there are parts that you miss. Have a good cry over i...mine the dirt for the good stuff...the lessons, the good memories, the way it made  you who you are.......and then let it go. It's like not cleaning out an  infection and then sewing up a wound right around the infection. Grieve  it....get it out. It is ok.

You sure are a spectacular soul. Think of  how much more you will shine when you let this go. You are so very loved.
