That which you hold, holds you.
September 17th - time to let go
Incredible change happens in your life when you decide to take control of what you do have power over instead of craving control over what you don’t.
It’s that time of year again when I do the fall switch of clothing. My closets and drawer space are net big enough to hold all that I own. So I store away what is not needed at the time. The spare bedroom has a closet full of bins of clothing waiting to be used the next season.
I enmptied a few over the weekend and discovered a few that has things in them that I’ve not worn for a year or so. I don’t know why I’m holding on to them. So it’s time to let them go.
I aslo hold onto fall decorations and add to them each season, it seems. I’ve been through those and found nothing to let go of. They are stored outside in my storage shed which isn’t very large at all. I holds decorations for each season and the lawn mower and the snow blower which have to be moved out of the way in order to get to the bins. So what I’m holding on too causes me more work than anything. We have to be careful about what we hold on to.
So many times when I finally get rid of something It’s then I discover that I should have kept it.
It’s a fine art of holding on and letting go.
Letting go helps us to live in a peaceful state of mind and helps restore our balance. It allows others to be responsible for themselves and for us to take our hands off situations that do not belong to us. This frees us from unnecessary stress.
