“Let it go”, is it a cliche or is it possible?
I think it’s a little of both.
It’s much easier to tell someone to “let it go” than to be the one who has to do the work.
Here are my trusted tips on letting go…
- Sit quietly for a couple of minutes and take a few deep breaths.
Now ask yourself if there is anything you can do to change what has happened.
If it’s something someone did to you understand that we don’t always know why others do what they do, we can only control what we do and how we respond.
You have the choice right now to choose to either allow this situation to control you or you can take control of your thoughts and accept what it is, learn from it, and move forward.
- Send the person or the situation love.
You may have a confused look on your face and think I’ve totally lost my mind, so be it, send the love!
Close your eyes and think of the person or situation and genuinely send love.
At first, it’s a hard thing to practice & you’ll feel the urge to fight it (especially if all you want to do is smack the tard out of this person) but trust me this works much better for your well-being in the long run.
- Forgive, because it’s what’s best for you.
There is so much freedom in forgiveness but it becomes a matter of you wanting to be free.
The bondage and imprisonment of holding onto things that we can’t change nor have any control over are toxic to our minds and bodies.
Do you want to be free? Are you tired of complaining about the same situation over and over again getting the exact same results?
Do you want to stop going to the same movie in your head day after day?
If so, radical forgiveness is the way out. If it’s a person that you need to forgive imagine them in your mind standing before you. Walk up to them and tell them you forgive them, give them a hug, and now ask them to forgive you.
I know it sounds silly, but it’s also silly to allow things and people to rob us of our precious time here on earth. Be silly and forgive.
- Let That Shiitake Go!
Shake it off, laugh it off, and move forward on your awesome journey.
You are Gods highest form of creation. I believe everything we go through in our life is a lesson and every person we meet is a teacher. I personally am grateful for all of my hurts, I thank the hard times because they’ve made me who I am today and are helping others along the way.
- Replace the negative feeling and thought with gratitude.
Whenever the hurt comes up in your mind immediately replace it with a positive thought. Think of something you are grateful for and write it down. Start a gratitude journal and begin focusing on the good in your life. No matter what you are going through, there is always something to be grateful for.
I hope these tips help encourage you to release the thoughts that are holding you back from enjoying the life you were given. ❤
Have a wonderful week ahead my friends!
