“We need to let go of the brick walls that form a prison around our mind.”
This is something I read recently which led me to write this, as it’s something that seems to be coming up a lot lately in my everyday conversations; people appear to be so afraid of letting go due to fearing the loss of a future they don’t even know exists, nor can be seen from where they’re standing.
Freedom. Defined as the power or right to act, speak or think as one wants without hindrance or restraint, emancipating yourself from burdens opens up possibilities that are better serving to your life. Holding on to the past and regrets prevents us from recognizing and capturing the golden opportunities that present themselves to us everyday. Your past does not predict your future, nor should it control your present moments. When we fail to clear away the chains holding us back from the magic that is meant to unfold, we are keeping true happiness, love and purpose at bay. Identifying the things that are holding you back from letting go will allow you to really see the possibilities that lay before you. You’ll find you will start attracting the right people, opportunities and situations conducive to living a fuller life and personally transforming.
Freedom is about acknowledging our shortcomings, accepting ourselves in spite of them and focusing on that which brings us peace. Don’t ever forget that you deserve to be happy, and that comes from loving yourself first. Embrace the unknown and step confidently into that place without fear. Don’t dwell in guilt and make sure to do things that feel good. How we evolve and bloom is about how healthy our insides are…cut out any cancers that are bringing toxic energy into your life: thoughts, people, situations. Don’t tolerate these things; they only breed insecurities.
Remember: always be moving forward – never back. Feed your soul with people and experiences that energize and esteem you and be sure to surround yourself with love, laughter, support and positive energy. Make the time to spend quality time with family and friends, but be sure to also spend time alone. Reflection and meditation are important pieces of the freedom puzzle.
Letting go is about releasing yourself from the metaphorical ties that keep you from moving forward. The only thing never let go of are your dreams, for they are that which helps move us closer to our divine purpose.
