I invite you today to “let go” and release that which no longer serves you.
Have you ever stopped to look around your home to realize, wow! I’ve accumulated a lot of stuff! Then you go around and collect what you never use or doesn’t match your style anymore, and you have a big garage sale or you send it off to Goodwill?
It feels good doesn’t it? Getting rid of clutter, doing a deep cleaning, moving things around, making more room to rearrange things just the way you want — then going out and buying new furniture to replace and update your look — It’s fun and it’s cleansing.
It’s a lot like gardening. Once in a while you have to pull out the weeds so that your flowers have a chance to grow.
Have you ever done a ‘Spring Cleaning’ or a ‘Weed-Pulling’ for your soul?
Take stock of your schedule and the people you spend your time with. Are there people in your life that take up space, cramp your style, and drag you down?
You know who they are! Just like a Spring Cleaning, you have to see that some relationships are no longer healthy. Perhaps they’ve changed or you’ve changed, either way, you’re both not the same anymore.
I’m not suggesting you get rid of faithful friends or a family members, but there are some relationships that you’ve been hanging on to, or have allowed to hang on to you, that aren’t the best for you.
How about a gossipy friend at work? A whiney parent at your kid’s school? That personal trainer who’s become more of a buddy than a coach to get you in shape? Or that love relationship that no longer has any love in it?
Over the coming days, take a look at your relationships. Which ones build you up and help you be a better person? Which ones pull you down and keep you from becoming your best you?
It’s okay to let some relationships go. Just like with pulling the weeds from the flowers in your garden, there’s a season for everything.
You totally got this. Have a lovely day!
Stress Release Tip
When you realize there’s a person in your life that you really need to let go of, it isn’t easy to end something that’s been part of your life for so long. Over the coming days, sit in gratitude for all the wonderful things you and this other person have shared. Then, with loving kindness, talk to this person and express how you see that this relationship has evolved. Be open to letting this person go, or perhaps by talking it out, this relationship can transform into something even better!
After pulling out the ‘weeds’ in your life, you may be tempted to quickly fill up that space again — especially when you’ve let go of a relationship, you want to find a new somebody to take the place of the one you once held a room in your heart for. Be patient with yourself. Don’t rush into anything. Sit with this newness, breathe into it, let it settle and appreciate the clarity and space you can now enjoy.
Quote From Dana
“The wonderful, beautiful thing that happens when you rid yourself of the things that don’t see your worth? You make space in your life for all the glorious things you deserve.”
