Ever heard one of your girlfriends say, “I’m just not ready to let go.”
Or maybe you’ve been that girlfriend.
Well I’m taking a stand against it from now on. I understand the psyche behind it. But I don’t believe in it.
How about this instead…
How about letting go moment to moment. Breath by breath. Experience by experience.
The better we get at letting go, the less expectations we have, the more freedom we experience and the more opportunities life presents us.
Let me give you a common scenario.
You know the relationship you’re in isn’t right. You feel it in your gut. But ‘knowing’ doesn’t necessary make it any easier.
1) Settle for something you know isn’t right and have an average life.
2) Have the hard conversation and break up, feel the pain, let it go and make way for awesome.
This is not just a one off type of thing. If we want to get really good at it and live the life we want to live we have to practice it daily.
Start with the small stuff like when a stranger doesn’t smile back at you or when your boss looks at you strangely. Notice the body contract, shoulders tighten or however stuff manifests in your body, and choose to soften and release.
Ease and flow, people. Let it go.
