For Rent

 I woke up one morning feeling less than ecstatic.  Like a bolt of lightning, it came to me how everything is changing so fast in my life.  Like in a brief period of time, things change, people come and go. And I can’t help it. I was prepared to sulk for the day if not for two words– Let Go.                                                                                                                          
The adage “Let live and Let Go” holds its meaning for ages. It is specifically meaningful for those who like me, find themselves caught in recent successions of raging drama (like on TV). Well, guess this is how it goes. Most of those we get in touch with in our lives, the job, the people we love/d, we are just lucky and blessed to let God rent them to us. Some are allowed to stay longer than expected while others just dissipate with no warning. 

I told myself, everything is rent.  You can’t hold people down, stay where you are not welcome, or keep beating yourself up for that lost love/job/ or poor decision. Moving forward starts with letting go.

And so my morning went less brighter than what I hoped it can be. But I think I am enlightened. To those who have been a part of my life, thank you. I hope the rent, though it cannot last, was worth it.
