#45 THAT LOVE SOMETIMES MEANS LETTING GO

Life is full of lessons that make us grow…Someone gave me this poem to read years ago, the message is still powerful today.

Letting Go

author unknown

To “let go” does not mean to stop caring; it

Means I can’t do it for someone else.

To “let go” is not to cut myself off; it’s the

Realization I can’t control another.

To “let go” is not to enable, but to allow

Learning from natural consequences.

To “let go” is to admit powerlessness, which

Means the outcome is not in my hands.

To “let go” is not to try to change or blame

Another, it’s to make the most of myself.

To “let go” is not to care for, but to care about.

To “let go” is not to fix, but to be supportive.

To “let go” is not to judge, but to allow another

To be a human being.

To “let go” is not to be in the middle, arranging

All the outcomes, but to allow others to affect

Their own destinies.

To “let go” is not to be protective, it’s to permit

Another to face reality.

To “let go” is not to deny, but to accept.

To “let go” is not to nag, scold, or argue, but

Instead to search out my own shortcomings

And correct them.

To “let go” is not to adjust everything to my

Desires, but to take each day as it comes and

Cherish myself in it.

To “let go” is not the regret the past, but to

Grow and live for the future.

To “let go” is to fear less and love more.

May we all know when to let go …let God …and Let live!

Has there been a time when you needed to let go and found it difficult?

After the break up!

Don’t let one bad apple spoil the rest of your life!

 We believed love with that special someone would be  forever, but sometimes… time passes and it’s not forever. It failed… Remember what was good…let go of the bad…learn the lessons and allow your heart to healgrow… and then free it to try again.

Love  cannot be bought…it’s priceless and when you have it , it is sooooo, much more powerful than the pain of a past , if you let it be.

Remember that there are plenty of good fish in the sea …and you only want one!

Know what you wantneed…and deserve but don’t expect more than you are capable of, or are willing to give!

Blessings!

Anger! 3 reasons to Let Go… 3 solutions that can help!

Are you still holding on to anger from past relationships…a dysfunctional parent/child relationship…sibling rivalry …stressful job or  other situations that put us in fight or flight mode?
Well, here’s …

  Good reasons to let go!
1. Anger, resentment, hate, and guilt are emotional viruses that attack and eat away at your heart, your spirit, and your soul.
2. The stress brought on by these emotions are damaging to your physical and mental health.
3. Holding on to these emotions immobilize you and keep you from growing and moving on to what can bring you peace, prosperity and happiness.

   3  Great ways to start the process of letting go!

1. Let Go and Let GOD…as a person who’s been challenged and tested more times than I care to remember (and still being tested) I stand firm in knowing that having faith in God (whatever faith you are and whatever name you call him) is a key in giving you the strength to endure …I am a witness that what doesn’t kill you definitely makes you stronger!
2. Choose to love yourself to the point where you no longer want to give these emotions the power and control they have over you. Remember…this is for you to move on with your life! You want to smile again, live again… love again!
3. Don’t be afraid to talk with someone…not just your buddy! (Counselor, spiritual adviser, etc.)Talk with someone you trust. Someone who can be objective and not just tell you what you want to hear, but tell you what you need to hear! And then provide you with a shoulder to lean on and the emotional tools to help get you where you want to go!

Allowing your heart, soul and spirit to heal, closes a door and opens a window of opportunities for healthy living!

Is there anything you need to let go of today?
