As the months and days and weeks and minutes rapidly visit and depart, what have we accomplished during their time? What words have we spoken or chosen to not say? What dangerous habits have we broken? What resolutions have we turned into habits of health? What relationships have we renewed? What painful reminders have we finally released?

With each chapter, each word, each question, each action of reflection, what have we chosen to no longer carry?

Big questions. Major decisions made in brief moments of time. The answers and actions can bring long-term changes. They can finally release what has carried a weight and held us back. They can help us finally forgive, receive, rejoice, and be free.

Holding too much holds us back.

Keeping what should be let go keeps us from being let go.
