Shackman and I also share the love of pitching a baseball and we can attest that holding on through strong G forces and then at just the right time letting go - and the manner in which you let go - is what pitching is about. Pitchers talk about their control relying upon finding the proper release point. So, is life itself in so many aspects. Loss of a relationship, loss of a loved one, loss of wealth, it is difficult to find the proper release point and it is difficult to let go correctly. But, just as the release of a breath is necessary to the inhalation of the next one, we must let all the other parts of our lives go at the proper release point so that we can embrace the new.
This week has also taught me a whole new meaning of release. I got a bladder infection and there was a misdiagnosis of the bacteria until the culture was done, so I didn't start getting better until yesterday. Trust me, when you have a strong bladder infection, you learn a whole new meaning of the difficulty of release! Oh, boy.
This topic was brought to the LBC by Maria, the Silverfox. I am late, for the reasons mentioned in this post coupled with a few work projects that refused to wait. Oh well, that is past, so I can let it go. Now, let this post go and see what the other members had to say!
