Birthday Week Day 3
About a year ago, I met a woman who said something that’s stuck for me.
“Let go of what no longer serves you”.
Get rid of it.
The things you hold on to, hold energy and block the space for new.
I’ve seen this in so many areas and have created a practice of continually checking in to ask for myself.
Does this serve me?
Clothes that don’t make me feel good anymore, people who drain my energy and leave me feeling used, jobs I’ve hated, relationships that I’ve known weren’t right...
It’s scary and what I’ve seen is that often the first response is “I don’t know..”
Fear gets in the way of me even knowning whether something is still right.
But what I’ve learned is that often we can’t see what’s next, while we’re still clutching on to what’s not right.
That while we still have that shitty job, or toxic relationship, we can’t fathom that there could ever be anyone else, or we have no idea what else we would do.
Freedom comes from letting go.
Trust yourself when you know something isn’t right and trust that you’ll work it out.
Let go of the things that no longer serve you. It’s much like a detox.
The empty space gives opportunity for new and often the “I don’t know”, becomes space to breathe and choose what’s next.
