I don’t do much writing on my blog, but today I feel the urge to write about letting go….
I have had to let go of many things in my life that I had no control over, and many things I chose to let go, depsite the pain of doing so. We all come to crossroads in our lives when things need to change. If life is stagnant, or you are not comfortable with the way you feel within yourself, you need to figure out what you need to “let go” of and release it. It is not always an easy task. Sometimes, you may even look back and wonder what would have happened if you didn’t “let go” of that particular thing… You must listen to your inner self and do what is right for you.
When my son passed away, I had to let him go and I didn’t want to. He passed away in my arms at only 22 days old. It was the hardest “letting go” I ever did…. But now, ten years down the road, I have let go of most of the painful parts of that time of my life and only hold the precious moments close to my heart, although I admit that it will always hurt deeply.
In my life, I have chosen to “let go” of negative friends (who really were not friends) that always tried to bog my down with their bad vibes. It is like a weight lifted off my shoulders to not have to have that low vibration around me anymore. There have been other relationships that I had to end that I didn’t want to, but knew it was for my best interest. Sometimes it is hard to give up ones you love, but you have to do what is right for you and your well being. You can still send them love through prayer and thoughts, but if their presence in your life is making it difficult for you to live, you must tell them goodbye… even if you don’t want to.
If your job is making you feel over stressed, you need to find what your heart is really telling you to do. Listen to your inner self and “let go” of the things that make you restless.
Peace in your heart, mind and soul is the main priority. The journey to get to the “peace” is the hardest part, and I am still traveling on that journey, myself….
It sounds like you’ve been through a lot, yet have found a way to still see the sunlight…we like to think about letting go as a renewal, recharging, reconfiguring of sorts. Energy doesn’t die, nor does spirit or one’s soul, so by accepting “what is” we can find the gap between pain and loss which is the present moment = the gift. Hope that make sense 🙂 xx
I agree with you 100%. 🙂
