During times of great change we all learn to let go.
To let go of our expectations.
To let go of the old ways.
And to let go of that which no longer serves.
Or how to grieve the loss.
Especially when it comes to people.
Those are the hardest losses of all to accept.
Life the loos of a career or a business.
Or the loss of an office or the loss of a home.
Whenever things change for us, we could feel a loss.
Even if it was our own choice, it can still feel like a loss.
Such as when we decide to move out of a home we lived in for years.
Many people today have changed their business from an in-person one to a virtual one.
So now they let go of an office they no longer need.
That lack of physical space can feel like a loss.
Even Something as little as a TV show we always watch being canceled can feel like a loss.
How do we cope when things seem to be changing by the day?
The buddhist principle of non-attachment is a great way for those who have practiced it over the years.
For those of us who have not, perhaps learning to acknowledge that we actually are feeling a loss is the first step.
To recognize that we do feel sad that something that was in our lives before is now gone.
And then, after we've fully felt what we are feeling, we can look to the future for something new.
For there is always something new on the horizon.
There is always another person or place coming into our lives.
For life is not static.
It is growing and flowering and the cycles keep turning.
Is there some loss in your life that you have yet to grieve?
Have you considered looking at what that space of loss can bring you anew?
