Letting Go Takes Strength and a Lot of Love

Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go. ~Herman Hesse

There comes a time in each of our lives when we are “asked” to let go of certain places, certain ideas, certain things and certain people in order for something new to come our way, something new to emerge.

No matter what are the circumstances and no matter if you make the decision or if the decision is forced on you, letting go can seem like such a difficult and scary thing to do, am I right? If we could only find the wisdom and inner strength to allow things to come and go without any resistance on our part, our lives would get so much easier and we would all become a lot more happier and relaxed, at peace with ourselves and the world around us.

When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us. ~Helen Keller

 

LETTING GO TAKES LOVE

“To let go does not mean to stop caring, it means I can’t do it for someone else.

To let go is not to cut myself off, it’s the realization I can’t control another.

To let go is not to enable, but allow learning from natural consequences.

To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means  the outcome is not in my hands.

To let go is not to try to change or blame another, it’s to make the most of myself.

To let go is not to care for, but to care about.

To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.

To let go is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.

To let go is not to be in the middle arranging all the outcomes,  but to allow others to affect their destinies.

To let go is not to be protective, it’s to permit another to face reality.

To let go is not to deny, but to accept.

To let go is not to nag, scold or argue, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.

To let go is not to criticize or regulate anybody, but to try to become what I dream I can be.

To let go is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.

To let go is to FEAR LESS and LOVE MORE.

Remember:  THE TIME TO LOVE IS SHORT.” ~ Author Unknown

    Time to love is short. It’s true. A reminder for myself: fear less, love more.

    This is a kind of wake up call to everybody who are holding/clinging to things, events and people that are hard to let go of with. Sometimes we are being blind that there are nice opporrunities that is coming our way for letting go of our past. The key to a successful and painless detachment is…Faith in God that gives you the courage and strenght to let go and open to new opportunities and have a better and happy life.Stay possitive and hope for the best! Goodluck everyone!

    I love and needed this post. Funny how this morning I was reading Romans where Paul is talking about letting God take the wheel and fully trusting in him. I guess the universe is trying to tell me something 🙂
