Today I lost a hat that I had owned for 7 years. The hat had certainly become a part of me and has travelled with me to many places. It has been my faithful source of warmth for all this time.
Due to my positive project I have have been able to look at this loss as a lesson of detachment. I am able to step back from what could have been upsetting and turn it into a gain. I am able to detach from my possessions and learn that I am not my belongings.
As we move closer to a new year, I am reminded of a new beginnings and the ability to move on.
