Life Lessons from The Life of Pi

My father gave me The Life of Pi, years ago and sadly I never finished it. My father is much smarter than me and knows what I'll like, sometimes I need a movie to push me to find what he wanted me to read and understand.

Had I read it years ago something else would have stood out but for now this is what I need to work on.....

Adult Pi Patel: All of life is an act of letting go but what hurts the most is not taking a moment to say goodbye.

Everyday I run into situations where I become overwhelmed, frustrated, anxious, stressed, disappointed, sad or even angry. These feelings hurt my physical health and I NEED to learn TO LET GO.

I think sometimes I'm so worried about hurting because I won't get the the final say/goodbye that I hold on to these feelings instead of letting go. The fact is these feelings are brought on by situations that are out of my control. Lets face it there's not much in this life that we are in control of other than learning to LET GO.

The only way to let go is to leave them behind or let them wash to sea.

For me, my peaceful place is the beach. I don't have to get in the ocean, I don't have to build a sand castle all I need is to hear the waves come in, crash and drag back out and with it it takes all my worries.

"All of life is an act of letting go.."and finding out what new adventure is about to come crashing down.
