We all have “stuff” that we like to hang onto from our past. We somehow have the idea that if we hang onto an idea, an image, a belief or our anger that we are safe and this makes us stronger. Hanging on creates an illusion of safety. Real security comes from the knowing that we can let go of what doesn’t serve us any longer, and we are still OK.

Viktor Frankl states in his book Man’s Search for Meaning, “Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of human freedoms – to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.”

Life offers us many opportunities to grow, expand, experience and develop. We don’t always like these experiences and yet there are gems of opportunities for our growth and happiness.

When we choose to let go of what no longer serves us; a relationship, friendship, a job, a negative way of being, we open up to an infinite flow of loving energy within and around us. When we are hanging on to the emotions of fear, resentment and anger, these emotions are determining our choices. We are then the walking wounded.

First start to admit to yourself what is limiting you in your life. Remember, we are all more alike than we are different. We all have stuff. It’s OK. Then state your willingness to yourself to let go. You don’t have to know the how. The how is not our business. It will happen organically over time as long as you are committed to releasing what doesn’t serve you. You are making the choice to feel empowered and in control of your feelings. You are making the choice to love yourself and let the energy of love flow. You will also then see the benefits of letting go and make healthier, loving choices for yourself. Every loving choice you make determines your future.

Affirmation: I choose to release and let go of what doesn’t serve me in living a positive future.
