From Moshi


A good friend left the barn today. I was sad to know that he wasn’t coming back. His person took a new job in another city so he had to go to a new place. I will miss his funny nicker and his terrific sense of humor.

Letting go of friends, jobs, or situations can be hard. It can hurt. But letting go is a natural part of life. Change is inevitable, so it is wise to put some perspective on the feelings and understand how to move beyond the discomfort.

Everything changes. Everything! Resistance to change can be one of the most challenging natural traits to overcome. And yet, all you have to do is relax, let go of your need for things to be a certain way, and trust that there is more going on than meets the eye. There is a plan, an order to the Universe, that we can’t possibly know. It’s that leap of faith in trusting that all is well, even when it is uncomfortable and unknown, that’s the key to letting go of our discomfort with change.

I will probably never see my friend again, but I am grateful to have known him. And I know new friends will fill the void. For now, I’ll let myself feel sad at his leaving, but tomorrow I’m going to direct my thoughts toward being happy to have known him. And I will be looking forward to all the new friends coming into my life.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying, “When one door closes, another door opens.” Let’s watch for the next open door! It’s there, if we’re willing to look for it.

Love, Moshi
