Loosening The White-Knuckled Grip and Finding A Little More Peace Along The Way

Prompt: Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

+++++

A short list of what I’ve let go of this year:

My ego.

Matt.

My regularly scheduled life.

Why did I let go so much?

It just wasn’t working anymore.

Or ever, really.

To be honest, I was tired.

Tired of fighting every single battle in the world. I was tired of the constant struggle of trying to be in control. I was tired of learning the same lessons -over and over again.

The experience of loosening up my grip on everything has been nothing short of revolutionary. I feel lighter and less anxious. My connections are more heart felt and to be honest, scary. I feel vulnerable. Not in the oh-my-god it’s so scary way, but in the let’s try it this way and wow the level of kindness is awe inspiring.

+++++

Is there something in your life that is no longer useful to you – an old story, an outdated belief, a pair of shoes? Can you let it go?
