7 Things To LET GO Of Now!!

One of the hardest things to do for many of us is to simply Let Go!  In some cases, it is because we are a control freak.  Sometimes, it’s because we felt the hurt was too much to bear.  But bear it you did and here you still are – thank goodness!  There are a myriad of reasons.

You only have control over yourself – your actions, feelings.  Sometimes it is difficult to see the light through the forest and you have to move to a clearing to feel the warmth of the sun radiating down upon you.  This is the same with your thoughts and mind – you have to clear them of old habits to move forward.


Let Go…

Of the past – It’s over with and done with.  This is not to say to lose the lesson of it, but if you are to truly move forward, you need to let go of the past.  Mend the heart, learn the lesson and move on.  This is not to say to forget what’s happened.  For in doing that, you have not learned the lesson and will only be apt to repeat the past over and over.

Of preconceived notions – You don’t know someone else’s plight or what they have been through.  On top of that, we have no right to judge others, yet we find it so easy to be judgmental.  Who gave us that right?  No one!!  Unfortunately, too many do this to make them feel better about themselves.  There’s a saying that the word assume is made of three words – ass-u-me.

Of petty jealousies, dislikes and little things that bother you – All this is, is negativity.  Nothing positive can come of it when you in a negative place.  Release them.  They can do nothing for you and will only hold you back.  Besides, they don’t look pretty on you!

Of disappointments and a feeling of inadequacy – Only you can hold yourself back.  Yes, we will all have disappointment in life.  Yes, we will all have failures.  But, it is what you learn from it that matters.  Take that lesson and use it – trying again.  It takes many failures for each and every success!  You can do it!!  Only you can hold yourself back.

Of anxiety – Being anxious will get you nowhere fast.  All problems have a solution.  When you look at a problem, no matter how large, and break it down to it’s simplest components, then and only then will you see how manageable it is.  Because once you break it down, then you can see how all the little components contribute to that problem.  At that point, you can tackle the crux of the problem and each component individually.

Of energy vampires – There are people out there that will suck the life out of you if you let them.  They are there for themselves.  They only want to talk about their problems and issues looking at you for acknowledgement, commiseration and approval of their plight.  They don’t want to hear about you.  They are looking to bring you down to their level or lower so that they can feel better about themselves.  These are not the positive constructive people that you want in your life to lift you up as you would do for them.

Of toxic relationships – We’ve all been hurt by another person at some time or another.  We were treated badly, our trust was broken, our hearts were hurt.  And while this pain is normal, sometimes it lingers for too long and we relive it over and over.  This is problematic. It not only causes us to be unhappy, but can distract us from work and family and other important things and make us reluctant to open up to new things and people. We get trapped in a cycle of anger and hurt, and miss out on the beauty of life as it happens.  We need to learn to let go. We need to be able to forgive, so we can move on and be happy.  But, you not only need to forgive the other person, more importantly you need to forgive yourself!!  Only you can do this.


Every day is a brand new day that you’ve been afforded.  Use it!  Do something new or change an old habit.  Don’t live in the past when there is a bright new future out there for you!  Remember, you can’t reach what’s in front of you until you let go of what’s behind you.
