“Are you going to allow the world around you to change while you remain stagnant? Make this the time you throw away old habits that have hindered your happiness and success and finally allow your greatest self to flourish.” -Steve Maraboli
Is there anything in your life today that you can simply let go? It might be a belief, a re-occurring thought or a behavior or an attachment to a thing or person that just no longer serves you. In the back of your mind, you may have known it needs to be released, but you have continued to hold on because you have had it, done it or been attached to it for so long, that it seemed like part of you, but that’s now, no longer the case. It could be anything…..night time eating, mindless snacking, a belief that you “hate” exercise or that you will “never” get control of your weight….something that just no longer serves you and it’s time to release and remove from your life. It might seem like a strange question, but give it some thought and see if you can come up with one thing. As we move through different stages in our lives, we continue to grow and change and occassionally taking “inventory” of our current thoughts, beliefs, actions and attachments can show us what is working for us and what no longer has to be true for us. Letting go may seem uncomfortable at first, but if whatever it is, if it no longer serves us, very soon after we remove it from our lives we will feel a sense of relief and empowerment.This is OUR life and we get to choose. “When we know better, we do better” as Maya Angelo says.
