Holding on is not always the answer

So... how's this for getting rather relaxed about blogging every day...

I thought I'd posted my Sunday quote until I went to respond to a commenter and realized... oh my -- I hadn't got there yet! :)

I'm finding without the pressure of having to fit it all in, I'm rather relaxed about fitting anything in!

Here, however, is a quote from Ann Landers I found in my Inbox last week that really resonated in my heart.


Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it. -- Ann Landers

Simply said, and so true. It took me far greater strength to let go and walk away than it did to stay and endure for so very long.

It's not always easy to know when, is it?
