She Let Go

Someone shared a poem with me.  I think it really moved me to look at what holds me back from making decisions and just let it all go .  I re-packed and re-purposed it, but here is what I have.  Enjoy.

She Let Go
She let go without a thought or a word, she let go.
She let go of fear. She let go of pre and post-judgments.
She let go of the influences and opinions swarming around in her head.
She let go of the committee of indecision that lived within her.
She let go of all the right reasons and the wrong behaviors.
She let go of the prejudices, discriminations and biases.
Wholly and completely. Without hesitation or worry, she just let go. 
She didn’t ask for advice.  She didn’t read a How To book, she just let go.
She let go of all the memories that held her back. She let go of all the anxiety that kept her from moving forward. 
She let go of all the planning and calculations to ensure she did it just right.
She didn’t promise to let go.  She didn’t write it in her journal or on her blog.  She made no public announcement.  She didn’t Tweet or Facebook about it, she just let go.
She didn’t check with her daily horoscope or check the weather report.  She just let go.
She didn’t analyze or call her friends to discuss the matter.  She didnt call her parents for advice, she just let go.
No was around when it happened.  There was no applause or congratulations.  No one thanked or praised her.  No one noticed a thing. 
Like a leaf falling from a tree, she let go.  Without effort or struggle.  She let go.
It wasn’t good.  It wasn’t bad.  But it was what it was, because she let go.
A smile came over her face and a light breeze blew through her.  And for the first time in a very long time, she felt complete and simply because she let go.
