But what about letting go? Does letting go = giving up? Why should you let go?
Let go because life has backed you into a corner.
Let go because you deserve better. Different.
Let go because it’s more painful to hold on.
If you refuse to you will suffocate under the weight and pressure.
Because whatever “it” is? It’s asking you to let go.
IT wants to be let go of.
IT is dying so that something else new/fresh/alive can be born. And the longer you fight the “let-go” the more constricting your situation will become.
Pro-actively choosing to let go is different than passive letting go whereby life snatches things from your clutches. Passive letting go is harsh + violent. Active letting go, can be painful. But it’s also liberating + and steeped in relief.
Borrow the courage to let go before heavy takes root. Before dark settles in + over.
When you proactively choose to let go you make delicious space for what you
really want to show up.
When you let go you allow the acceptance of “what is” to begin healing you.
When you let go you stop fighting a fruitless battle + bow to the perfect limitations of your situation.
With a heart ripped wide open you graciously, clearly understand;
Don’t wait until you're “ready.”
The waiting is full of wrought + angst.
You have carried it long enough.
Crouched under its weight long enough.
Unclench your fists, open your hands +
let the old pain roll off your palms, cascade through your fingers +
