You have to let go of places, people, and things. You have to let go of old beliefs that no longer support you, old ideas that you’ve outgrown. Life is a continual process of letting go.
How do you know when to let go?
There are two ways you can move on – you simply decide to let go and move on or you start moving in another direction and the past gradually gets left behind. Both work. Both are freeing.
I re-read posts I wrote a year ago and could see that I was beginning to recognize my need to find a new tribe. I explored the idea of a new tribe from several directions. There was a gradual letting go.
Another time, during the same period of musing, I reached an almost instantaneous decision that turned my path in a remarkable different direction. When life says let go – let go!
You always have to let go
Life is a collection of intertwined cycles. There’s always a cycle beginning and a cycle ending and one you are in the middle of. The catch is to keep letting go – daily – moment to moment so you move forward in all the cycles of your life.
Look over the lessons you learned, the skills you improved, the people you now respond to, and go on from there. Be grateful for not living in the past. Let it go. It’s over. It is no more. What you have is now.
Savor the present
When you live each moment as now, here, in the present, the present becomes alive and magical. It’s full of opportunities and knowledge.
When you stay busy embracing each moment, there’s no room for the past. You are full up of the present. You are full up of life.
You easily let go of every moment when you fully embrace the present.
