Letting go...

Sure was a great meeting last night, and a wonderful thing happened after I got home. I felt as if I was holding onto something that I couldn't see nor define. I just felt tense...? Whatever these hangups were that I couldn't define or see, I felt a powerful need to "let go."
So that's what I did. I just found myself flat on my back repeating the words, "let go" over and over...Suddenly I found myself free, and with a peace I haven't felt in years. I am clueless as to what really happened to me. All I can say is that it happened, and it was very real. A new freedom perhaps...Whatever issue I was hanging onto, I can only say I must have been holding on too tight. I am beginning to see what true letting go is. It is just beautiful, and nearly impossible to put into words what true letting go is for me. I believe I am beginning to totally trust my Higher Power. I guess I'll just leave it at that and not analyze or monkey with it. I pray you all can experience the ecstasy that true letting go brings. Thanks for another 24 hours without the need, desire, or the thought, to pick up a drink. That in itself for me is truly a miracle.
