Letting go is NOT the same as giving up. Sometimes you have to be willing to let something go because it is dragging you down, or you have chosen to change your focus. Life goes on, and your dream to be a ballerina may morph into a dream to be a choreographer – or a fisherman! This does not mean that you have given up; it may mean that you have chosen to move ahead. How do you know if you are giving up or letting go? Listen to your heart (or inner voice or whatever you want to call it.) And remember, letting go of something right now may mean that you are walking away from it forever, but it may just mean that you are putting it on the back burner for now. It’s your life – you get to choose.
