It is still a good idea to keep reading and listening, even if things are grabbing you at the time.
There is truth everywhere.
The thing is, you have to pay attention and something magically happens when one day, what you have heard a bazillion times, sounds fresh and inviting, and you welcome it into your life! Bammohh! It’s your truth now and you wrestle it to the ground and make it your own.
So I heard people say to let things go. Let go of the nasty things others do and say. Let go of the neglect and abuse you have felt. Let go of the resentments you have built up over time, due to real events. Yah, I was not so good at letting go of resentments.
However, after 4 years in Al Anon and some counseling and working with a great Life Coach and having amazing girlfriends give me the straight truth, I softened and was able to start letting go of that which no longer serves me. I can let go of people who do not further my higher path and for sure, those who hamper me.
I’m still on that process. I saw family members I have not seen since my father died this week and their past behavior did not rankle me. I wish them well and I don’t even add, ‘god knows they need it.’ Okay, I guess I did just add that, but hey! I’m still working on this!
Let go. If I can do it, so can you. There is no relationship in my past that I pine for. There is no excuse that will let some people back in to my life. And this year is about me getting my life where I want it, so there isn’t room for any shenanigans from anybody else here.
You could try it too. I highly recommend letting go of everyone and everything that does not support you on your very important life path.
Can I get an ‘Amen’?
