Letting go of what doesn’t serve you anymore

If there was one thing in your life you could let go of today that would bring peace and simplicity to your life, what would that be?

Perhaps it’s a grudge you’ve been holding onto, situations you have no control over, a recurring problem or a relationship that’s no longer serving you.  So what would happen if you just made a decision right now to let go of what may be causing your suffering?

Recall a time in your life when you did indeed have no idea where life was taking you.  Perhaps it was a job you really wanted and didn’t get and then the perfect job seemed to find you. The same goes for a relationship. We try to hold onto someone in our life when it’s clear the journey is over; when we finally let go it provides the space for new people and circumstances to come into our life that are more aligned with our values.

Have you ever experienced the feeling you are trying to put a square peg into a round hole and the amount of energy it takes to do that when you don’t let change happen? More often than not, we don’t know where our life journey will take us but if we get out of the way and stop resisting what wants to change life suddenly begins to flow with ease. What we resist persists, what we embrace we erase.

Many people resist letting go because of not knowing what might happen when they do but there is an aliveness in not knowing what will happen tomorrow and the opportunities that will come your way. Check it out and see for yourself.

Over the next week practice living in the moment; be mindful of when you are holding onto a situation that naturally wants to change and then with awareness simply let it go. It may continue to come back to challenge you because the mind is brilliant at capturing your attention but consciously choose not to feed that thought when it arises; then discover the freedom that becomes available when you choose to be true to yourself.
