All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on.
H. Havelock Ellis
January 6th - Let it go
I think of the trees and how simply they let go, let fall the riches of a season, how without grief, it seems, they can let go and go deep into their roots for renewal and sleep.
The new year is the perfect time to do some mental house cleaning and sweep out the old to make room for the new. Letting go of the old creates new space in our minds for greater awareness in the New Year. If I am holding on to a belief or habit that limits my happiness, then it is time to let it go and start fresh.
We need to let go of anger, grudges, expectations, comparisons, and most importantly hopelessness. Holding on to old ways, ideas or habits only causes pain and disappointment.
Life is so precious and short. Let go of hurt and fear.
But who knows what’s waiting in the wings of time.
Dry you eyes were gonna go where we can shine.
