Untying

As you can see, not that much has changed, I still can't make it through this damn NaBloPoMo to save my life! Ok, so I'm out after only one day, oh well.

My title is untying, today. When you go through major upheavals in your life, there seems to be a lot of untying (that is a strange word, I had to look it up to make sure I was spelling it correctly) you have to do. You realize there are things in your life that you have tied yourself to and now that you are 'awake' you start to wonder why?

Discovering that you need to untie is only the first step. The actual untying process is a whole other situation. Of course, there always ends up being hurt feelings and confusion on the part of the people/things you decide to untie from. They wonder what the hell is wrong with you and why are you acting so strangely? Why don't you call me anymore? Why are you distancing yourself from me?

It's a painful process that takes a lot of time and honest communication, which is never easy. But I'm realizing that once you truly awaken and set your mind to what you really want out of life and stay really clear with yourself, it all falls into place. Then, for me, it's this huge sense of relief. It makes your life so much less work when you aren't trying to stay tied to something or someone that didn't really fit.

So, here's to you having the strength to 'untie' yourself from some things that have never just felt like they fit for you. Strength is what you will need, but it's inside of you somewhere and you'll know when the time is right. Free yourself.

this may be too big a question for you to attempt answering in this forum, but how did you KNOW what or who to untie from? what were the signs? like, how and why did this process all start for you?
