on a personal note...
The title of this post is a quote from one of my favorite inspirational voices, Mastin Kipp. After reading this earlier today, I couldn't help but laugh to myself... or maybe at myself? This letting go thing is actually very difficult. You can read those words so effortlessly, then repeat them to yourself over and over again with the intention of leaving a permanent mark. But it takes such courage, such persistence in thought, and such a powerful will to put it into practice.
It has been a rough couple of weeks for me... from almost quitting my job (sounds like a pretty stupid thing to do in this job market but you would completely understand if you wore my shoes for a day) to almost cutting off a long time friend to being upset with my S.O. to stumbling over an interview for a potentially great job. After all of this happening within the past week, I was feeling hopeless. I felt as if I had completely lost control over my life... and maybe I have?
Though, I think this is exactly what I needed. I had reached my tipping point and now I'm ready to just LET GO. Letting go of this need to have everything go my way. Letting go of these expectations I have for myself based on where others are (or seem to be). Accepting that struggle, heartache, confusion, and upset are a part of life, just as joy, accomplishment, prosperity, and peace of mind. We need to boldly deal with both facets of life in order to be balanced and healthy and not to mention, appreciative.
I am allowing the universe to work for me... you should to : )
a picture I took in Phoenix of a pretty batch of flowers... it's always nice to stop and take in nature's beauty... appreciating the "little" things in life will help us to let go of the "big things"
