Mindful Monday: Learning to Let Go

this_is_your_life1

Why is it so difficult to detach? From things, situations, people. Walking away is always hard because you don’t know what lies ahead. It’s a big risk!! You could be leaving “good enough” for “way worse”!!!

However, in choosing to stay in a less than ideal, uplifting, nurturing, inspiring situation, fear is your captor. And the greater risk is in never having tried; never having had the courage; and most importantly, never trusting in a higher power and purpose to lead and support you.

It may seem safer to remain in a known environment than risk the possibility of ending up with less than you started with. You may feel more in control of your life and feel you have more certainty and stability. Unfortunately, security and safety are states of mind – intangible concepts that are not guaranteed to any human being walking this earth. We all know life can change in an instant – and the mediocrity that we have been clinging to can be snatched from our grasp, leaving us empty handed.

On the flip side, being willing to trade in all you have and all that you have become for just a shot at the opportunity for true fulfillment, purpose, motivation, passion and freedom seems less of a gamble in the bigger picture! Look at your life backwards; how do you want your children and grandchildren to remember you and eulogize you? What will your legacy be? How will you explain your life to your Source after all is said and done?

We are all magnificent, unique manifestations of God’s purpose for us. Yet we spend so much time conforming: seeking approval from others, trying to impress them, wanting their acceptance, that we stifle the very uniqueness that makes us special and relevant.

Your journey has led you to exactly where you are destined to be right now. While you cannot predict the future,  security comes from within and is not attached to what you possess. As we continually listen to our inner voices, we can focus on fulfillment rather than “success.” And you will never look back with regret and longing for what might have been. Trust in the power and beauty of your dreams.
