I believe that one of the main challenges in our human life is letting go.
Letting go of old hurts, letting go of beliefs that no longer serve us, letting go of pre-conceptions about life, letting go of habits that hurt us and hold us back and even letting go of people that are toxic to our well being.
Why would that be so hard?
It’s part of human nature to look for what’s familiar to us based on what we have experienced early in life. We rarely question why we do what we do and the way we do it.
Most of the time we take very little responsibility for our lives trusting this precious gift into someone else’s hands and when things don’t go the way we want them to go , we blame others.
Until something dramatic strikes our lives, be it an illness, a tragedy, a loss.
When we experience pain and suffering usually is the time when we find ourselves in a place where we can keep on going in self destruction or we can use the power we have within to reinvent ourselves as someone we truly want to be.
Our past experiences do not dictate who we are, contrary to what the world outside wants us to believe.
Every experience leaves imprinted in us a mark , a strong emotion and a change in behavior. The only way to letting go is looking within and having the courage and determination to understand and love the lessons learned and accept nothing less than greatness for ourselves…we will want the same for those around us too!
Letting go is an art, a healing art of shedding the old and welcoming the new.
Practice it regularly and watch the love for yourself and others grow.
