This is Peanut Butter Brickle. I’ve had a lot to let go in my life. I had to let go of hurt because I ended up at a shelter jail. I had to let go of sadness when I lost my brother Digby. I would say that those two events were the hardest in my life so far.
I’ve also had to let go of the worry monster. When I was younger, I worried so much that it made me angry.
I wanted to protect Girl Person and I made myself sick with worry. Lately, I’ve changed. Although I still watch over her, I also put some of the responsibility on Fruitycake.
He hasn’t learned yet. But he will. Everyone can learn when they have a teacher like me.
That worry monster has been getting us all the last week waiting on news from the vet person. They said there is still no news yet. And it may be Monday. So I have to let that go too. It’s a heavy weight.
I won’t let it ruin my weekend. Because we have too much to do. All in preparation of letting more material possessions go next week.
You would think that letting go of things would be easier. But this RV was Digby’s home.
The truck was Digby’s truck. And it hurts remembering sometimes.
In a way, it’s hard to let those things go. I feel like I’m losing some of my memories of him. I know it’s not rational. But it’s just how I feel.
Girl Person says that it’s time for change. She says it’s past time. We can’t keep holding on to this way of full time traveling forever. She says there are new adventures ahead.
But for us to get there, we can’t drag around things…material things…that have no feelings.
We have to let go. The world belongs to those who can let go because they are free to go.
I’m not saying we know this is the right time for all of these changes.
We don’t even have all the answers. But we do know we have to let go. Something is weighing us down.
And we can do this. I know it. Where will we go next week? I guess we will figure that out. Stay tuned.
