Letting go vs. holding on

I know I don’t have a lot of readers out there right now, but I thought I’d share this with those who do. Some really great thoughts, both in the original post as well as in the comments, and as always it is interesting to me to see how differing viewpoints intersect with each other. I’m sure I’ll post my own full blog post about the subject matter, likely not long from now, but in the meantime, please check out a fellow writer’s musings and see what you think.

“Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage, against the dying of the light.”Dylan Thomas

The say there’s one lesson of importance that life keep trying to teach us: letting go. Accepting whatever happened and moving on. Understanding that it is futile to fight back fate, destiny, or the will of the gods.

That, I’m afraid, is a lesson in humility that I never learned. And I think that it’s a different lesson altogether. That of holding on. Of being brave in the face of adversity, of being bold and persistent. Of forging your own destiny.
