Words of the Week: Learning to Let Go

Lately, I have been coming to realize the value of letting things go. Sometimes, I hold on so tightly to things from the past that do nothing but weigh me down and upset me. I often times forget to remember that I have the choice of letting them go.

While this letting go idea may not be something that can be accomplished in a day, a week, or even a month, it is something that can be worked on every day. Letting go is a learning process that takes patience, commitment, and sometimes courage.

Learning to release the difficulties of the past may not be the easiest thing to do but it is certainly the right thing. Not having the burden of past mistakes, tragedies, choices, and dramas allows me to have the room in my life to take on new and exciting things and promote the change it takes to move on. Letting go can do the same thing for you.

Words of the Week

I’ve always been a big believer in quotes. I even have a quote journal I’ve kept since I was in middle school, with quotes I’ve found in books, on websites, and collected here and there.

I love the power quotes have to inspire you, bring tears to your eyes or a smile to your face, or simply make you think. Everyone has quotes that they can just relate to in some special way.

Here are the words of the week I keep referring to right now:

I am not the biggest fan of change, and am slowly but surely learning how to accept it on a more regular basis. I have been through so much change in the past year, and often times I feel overwhelmed by how incredibly crazy my life has been.

This quote is a great reminder that change isn’t only necessary but is a good thing! Without change, nothing would ever move forward, and I wouldn’t have so many of the great people, things, and opportunities that I am lucky enough to have now.
