Prepare to Detach
Preparation is key. This is true. Preparation opens doors when opportunity knocks. For me, detachment is key. It has been staring me in the face but I couldn’t let go and clung on tightly. I kept everything and everyone as close as possible with my hands outstretched and grasping. Time and time again I made myself vulnerable, needy and insecure. My biggest lesson has been to detach and to learn to really let go. It has taken many years. The road has been strewn with stones, rocks and boulders. I stumbled, crawled and climbed over each one.
