I recently sold my car, which was really hard to do. I have had this car since 2004 and it has been with me through college, first job, first apartment, a couple of tickets (more like 3), being lost (mentally and physically), across state borders and many more memories.
To say that I am attached to my car is an understatement. It was my means of escape when I needed it and it sure is hard not to have that safety net anymore.
What made the sale easier was the nice gentleman at the car place. He was kind, understanding and a good conversationalist. The process was easy until I hit the train station to get back home and realized that I just let go of my Betsy (Yes, I named my car). The tears welled up in my eyes and everything hit. The fact that I am moving to Jordan, getting married, leaving the US along with my friends, family and life I have known for some time and then I also realized that it’s okay because I have faith in Allah and Mr. Chemistry (Do you feel the pressure, Mr Chemistry?)
So, I am learning to let go of some possessions because in the end…They are just things. And things can be replaced.
What have you let go of lately?
