Anyway, as I came up with the title for this post I was reminded of that song by Engelbert Humperdinck (if you're too young to know who he is, don't tell me!). "Please Release Me, Let Me Go..." it goes on to tell about a love affair that's ended. For a romance reader and author it's a sad song. UNLESS we look at it as the stepping stone to the greater love. The One.
The reality for me is that I'm always faced with letting go of something or someone I value in order to make room for the better, bigger gifts. Clearing out the clutter in my home leaves me the space and peace of mind to write. I go through a clutter purge after and before I write each book. It's part of my process--I don't even realize it half the time.
Which is why I was painting my bedroom last week, after living in our home for 2 years. The white walls were blinding me! I opted for a warm gold-beige ceiling and what I like to call hot chocolate walls. The room is calmer, more inviting to sleep. A good thing when the summer light can derail those zzzzzs.
Is there something you need to let go of that you're resisting?
