“Gone, gone, utterly gone, all has passed over to the other side.” -Buddhist heart sutra
“Yearning for a new way will not produce it. Only ending the old way can do that. You cannot hold onto the old all the while declaring that you want something new. The old will defy the new; the old will deny the new; the old will decry the new. There is only one way to bring in the new. You must make room for it.” -Neale Donald Walsch
Maybe the reason you’re not able to step up right now, to make your art, to fully embrace the new, is because you haven’t fully let go of the old.
Sunk costs are real and powerful. Don’t let them drag you down.
Whatever it is, say goodbye. Be grateful for the time together.
And with arms wide open, welcome in the new.
