the elephant is practicing the letting go…

how often did I hear this, “you just have to let go” and yet the practice and the experience can be so different, sometimes difficult and sometimes easy.

Letting go of an annoying coworker is difficult while you have to work on a daily basis with him or her, but letting go of the person once you have left the job is easy.

Letting go of people you love is different, it isn’t easy and it won’t become easier with time, or perhaps yes?

I think about all the great people I have met here during the last 6 1/2 years and the friendships which grew over time.  I know that I will miss them, but I also know that I will somehow stay connected with the once close to my heard…

I think once you realize, that nothing is forever, even the loss of something or someone isn’t  forever, it gets easier to let go. The experience teaches me that there are great people all over the world and by letting go of your friends, new ones will come and yet you can always stay connected, with all of them and if it is only in your spirit. We are all connected anyway..

Why the question: Who said that elephants can’t fly?

So why did I choose this question to start my blog about our moving form one Continent to another?

It is kind of difficult to find a start to all these complex thoughts and emotions which have lead us to this point, to this day where I am packing boxes and sorting things out.

But in short  and right here:

I think we are all in one way or the other an elephant and some of us choose to fly and the others just tell us, that elephants can’t fly….
