Letting go is hard. And it’s a challenge shared on an individual, cultural and societal level. It’s the reason why the need for change comes way before any change actually takes place. The fear of the unknown is often the culprit. The enemy we know seems more tolerable than the one we have yet to meet.
What makes us finally let go of old ways of thinking, jobs that don’t serve us, friends that have outlived their stay, is that somewhere deep inside we know there is a better life for us. It’s a strand of hope that gives us the courage to walk the untravelled path.
Whether it’s an unhelpful thought, a belief, or an idea, perhaps intuitively you know it’s time to let go. If you stay open to the possibility of change, instead of being rigid, you’ll give yourself the opportunity to heal, to grow, to invite newness, opportunity and positivity into your life.
Yes the work is hard. But in accepting the situation in front of you just as it is, you may be able to finally see what’s not working and that insight could inspire change. Sometimes it’s reading the words of individuals who are going through what you’re going through that can breed awareness.
In our posts this week, you’ll have an opportunity to practice self-acceptance and greater awareness of what’s working and not working in your own life. Maybe you’ll realize social media isn’t good for you or that having an extreme way of thinking doesn’t serve you, or that parenting is about learning from your children as much as you teach them. I’m always surprised by the nuggets of insight that I learn here. Read it and you may be surprised too.
