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.
