Mindful Monday #95 – Forget What is Gone

My life has been a roller coaster. This year has been inconsistent and I haven’t had time  to fully digest my experiences.

In my voice class yesterday, my practice started with a free write. Through writing, I realized that I am tired of letting go. Since I chose to face my fears a year ago, part of living a new life has meant letting go of old habits, beliefs or people. I’ve been letting just as much as I have been facing my fears and many times I am letting go of more then I ever thought I would. It appears that letting go and facing fears go hand in hand. I don’t know any other way around it?

I’ve been caught up recently on what I have given up in the process of facing my fears instead of seeing the good that has come as a result of that action.

Wherever you are with your growth, you must let go of what is to allow new energy, people and circumstances into your life. It’s not easy to let go, but it gets easier. Regardless of the amount of things that life asks you to release, it’s important to do it in stride.
