I’ve been busy.
Letting Go—-what does it look like?
I’ve been trying out the practice of letting go. Trying to look at myself and see…”is this what letting go looks like?” And if the answer is no, I am switching up my thoughts, my internal conversation, my actions—-basically choosing something that is different than what I have been doing that has resulted in a non letting go stance.
Letting Go—-how does it feel?
Freedom. I think it feels like freedom.
And rest. It feels so restful.
Letting Go—what is its opposite?
There is perceived pain in letting go because we fear we are forfeiting our ability to change things.
The deal is, it is not things that must change—-it is we who must change.
We must change the stories we have told ourselves about those things we are holding onto.
We must change the stories we have told ourselves of what we think is possible, doable, achievable.
Letting go so that the goodness of life can flow in, through, around, above and below us
And carry us gently and rock our souls so lovingly that we again find firm ground
and know for certainty that
we never really had to hold on for we have always been…
held by Something bigger than us.
We cannot both hang on AND go with the Flow.
The choice rests squarely inside us.
I find that when I’m by the ocean letting go seems to come more easily.
I love looking for sea glass.
Glass that has tumbled along, going with the flow.
Here are my treasures for the day 🙂
You are wished a day filled with a sea of love.
Let go and let love wash over you 🙂
Here’s a little video to set you in the mood for your own letting go…
P.S. I am headed back home today to Paris and to the Eddies (and Maggie)—filled with California sunshine and times spent with my daughter. We’ve folded laundry, lingered over coffee, grocery shopped and done the most mundane of things together—the sort of stuff that become so awesome when shared with someone you love—I’m gonna miss her!
