So I'm sure you've seen the dozens and dozens of posts about how awful 2016 was....
Life will still happen in 2017.
The beauty of letting go is that what happens in the past does not have to be drug into the present or projected into the future!
Letting go is an amazing skill. It is one that most definitely takes practice. No matter what your technique: meditation, working out, solitude, self development, etc.... whatever it may be, I challenge you to practice letting go.
Let go of what's holding you back.
Let go of the negative energy that is telling you things can't go the way you planned.
Let go of all the evidence you've collected your whole life that you can't have it your way.
Also take a good hard look at how holding on is limiting you.
Take a look at how holding on keeps you in the past or "standing still" in life. Look closer at what you are actually holding onto and what is costs you. Consider how much of your energy and head space are consumed by the past and how that is capping what's available and possible for your future.
I am grateful for the days I do the work to let go. It is almost as literal as cleaning out my closet. I am not only getting rid of the old, dingy, and outdated; I am making room for the new! When I do the work of letting go, I feel lighter and more aware. I can clearly see many more opportunities to go after all that is possible. When I let go, I have this availability to choose my actions from commitment to becoming the best version of myself.
Lastly, another beautiful piece of letting go is that it allows you to become very present to all the blessings you have. As a result of letting go of the past, you rubberband snap yourself right back into the now. The grass becomes greener, the sky becomes brighter, and the birds grow louder. You realize that you are not in that old story. You are here, now. You are alive and well, really, and you have a new chance at life.
Let go of what's not and grab onto what is!
Go live today.
Live the life you love,
