Let it go
Is there something that is holding you down and keeping you from taking off?
This extra burden can come in physical trash or mental garbage. You know, all those old frustrations, angers, resentments, hurts, etc., still floating around and weighing you down. For example, how many nights have you laid awake fuming with anger over something someone had done, even if you knew they didn’t mean it? You get so weighed down with this mental clutter that you just get really angry. The fire of this emotion consumes only you.
Wouldn’t you love to put it in a box and put it out at the curb for the trash collector? How do you do that?
Many of us have suffered with this problem and overcome our attitudes. This is one of the hardest challenges that you will ever face. We allow our martyred attitude to rule our lives. This is just another form of self-pity and whining. Our attitudes set the tone for everyone around us. We often get our feelings hurt and just pout for days, weeks or years. Get over it. You are not hurting anyone but yourself when you do this.
When you can let go of the pain from our past and proceed with baby steps into a happy and peaceful life you will find yourself taking off.
It is time to release these things that have been holding you back and watch your worries go up in smoke. This goes for hard feelings and things that you have been putting on the back burner. Take care of this and let things go; this will give you the opportunity to begin enjoying your life and focusing on your future.
