Just Let It Go!

It’s what you tell yourself when a thought or emotion comes up when meditating: “Just let it go!” Sure, saying it and the actuality of doing it is different but, it becomes reality, the more you do it. Meditation and the acknowledgement of letting go is a practice, and it is the benefit of  that practice that comes with the practice. So often in our lives, we are asked to let go, be it at the loss of a loved one, the breaking of a promise,  an unkind act, the releasing of a dream, resentment or guilt, or some deep seeded emotion or thought.  

Letting go takes practice, discipline, and intuition.  It takes timing. Knowing  what to keep and what to release  sometimes take a leap of faith into the unknown. It requires bravery and will.

In this New Year, whether you hope to shed pounds, bad habits, clutter in your life, or just the old of 2011, remember to let go of what you don’t need or just doesn’t benefit you. That’s what I’m hoping to do.

Happy New Year!
