It’s been on my mind lately, and in my conversations more and more. People are talking to me about Letting Go.
We struggle with the need to let go in so many situations in our lives. Things like
- letting go of relationships that no longer nourish us
- letting go of a job that doesnt feed our soul
- letting go of clutter – be it physical junk in our home and office
or mental thought patterns and beliefs that no longer serve us
- letting go, gradually, control of our children as they morph ever
so crazily into adults – and where the line is between control and
freedom, expectations and possibilities
- letting go of past hurts and bitterness
- letting go of the need to control everything and having faith
- letting go of fear and doubt and going for a dream we have long held close in our heart
- letting go of the need for pristine floors and shut toilet seat lids
And often the biggest problem, as I see it, is the fallout of our letting go. Or the fear of fallout.
Letting go of what no longer serves you opens you up to receive all the new gifts life has waiting for you.

I’d like to explore a few of these areas of letting go in more
detail in future posts. But before I do, I’d love some input from you,
my dear reader. Tell me, do you struggle with letting go? What is it you know, deep down, that you need to start letting go of? What’s stopping you?
