I so vividly remember this turning point in my own life. I remember clearly the realization that when he said, You don’t miss me, you miss a feeling.

That he had been right. Though not for the reason he believed. Because my longing was very specific to him. But I had been struggling with the concept of letting go. It was in that moment I realized that WE DO NOT LET PEOPLE GO…

No. Because the person is already gone. What we let go of is the hope, or the dream, or the possibility.

We let go of the feeling that US made us feel.

It takes awhile. ❤

I just love your heart, Heath Houston .

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
