Today’s Gift #essentialsofrecovery

. . . and, when the time comes to let it go, . . . let it go.

—Mary Oliver

If we all let go of one thing we like, and take instead each other’s hand; if we all let go of three minutes each day, and find instead a few perfect words for someone in the house; if we all withhold our judgments for one hour, and reveal during that time one of our own small secret sins; if we all skip the same meal each week, and spend the time together in the park; would we have less or more than what we started with?

It is one of the great and pleasing mysteries of life that we gain by giving things up. Instead of grabbing things or demanding from others if we give something up, we leave a space for something new to enter our lives.
