Let it go

If someone were to ask me what I ate yesterday, I would say for the most part I would not remember. However, as strange memory is, I remember exactly where I was on this day and this time last year and the year before. I remember it mostly because it coincides with a friend’s birthday and I remember what happened on her birthday 2 years ago.

Going back  2 years from today, it rained incessantly, the roads were flooded and making it hard to go anywhere. I however, decided to brave the weather and head out to see my friend and get Thai food on my way back. I get my food and rush back to my car only to realize I had locked the keys inside.

A friend picks me up and takes me home, where I have a spare car key…of course then I realize that I have no way to enter my apartment, because my apartment key is also in my car.

I sit there on a step in the apartment building eating my Thai food, trying to figure out how I was gonna deal with this situation.

My ex boy friend with who I had just broken up, walks in on me sitting on my steps and helps me get into my apartment. He was there to collect his belongings.

After he left with his things, I remember thinking the skies were crying for me. All this rain was the tears I was trying to shed.

I could not stay in my apartment any more, so I head to the mall to indulge in my favorite past-time of browsing books.

While sitting at the store, I find a note on the chair next to me, I pick it up and look around and considering I am pretty nosey, I take a peek and this is what it said.

Let it Go

Whatever someone has done to you is going to be attracted  right back to them at some point.                                                                                                                                                   You are not involved in this process, its simple law of attraction.                                       Stop carrying it around and let the universe take care of it – good, bad or indifferent.  Their stuff, their lesson.

Wise words, I needed to hear at that moment. Looking back on that day 2 years later, those words have more meaning and truth than I could have ever imagined and helped me get through a difficult time.

About my random musings

I am originally from South East Asia and I moved to the US about 15 years ago to follow my heart. My heart has since been broken a few times, but I continue to be on journey of trying to mend it. I could talk about running, baking or writing in a small crowd, but put me in a room full of strangers and I will be the one standing in a corner people watching. When I am not writing or running, I would be in my kitchen, flour strewn all over the kitchen counters, music playing in the background and me just rolling and folding dough, excited about what my creation will turn out to be. Besides that I love passionately, when I love, I give it my all, not always a good thing, but that is who I am. I jump both feet in and sometimes I come out with regrets but having learnt a lesson. I believe everything happens for a reason and this is my place to share bits and pieces of my life, my adventures and sometimes misadventures. Hope you enjoy reading my stories as much I enjoy sharing them with you.
