The struggle is real! Even as I share this…

Sometimes letting things go is an act of far greater power than defending or hanging on.” – Eckhart Tolle

I’ve come to realize that one of the great lessons in my life has been in letting go.

Letting go of the anger toward people in my life who didn’t show up in the way that I needed them to.

Letting go of the wanting for things to be different than they were.

Letting go of the sadness from the reality that they weren’t different, that they were as they were.

Letting go of the walls that were built to protect myself, and letting go of need to be protected.

Letting go of the need to control, and to “fix”, especially where my children were concerned. And again, letting go of the hope that things would be different than they were.

Letting go of the guilt, the shame, the insecurities. 

Letting go of a lifetime of fear (including right now, as I share this with you).

EVERY SINGLE DAY of my life, I am learning to let go!  As a parent, as a wife, as a friend, as a human being. And for some of the days, the struggle is real!

In my women’s group “Letting Go” (what else would I call it???),  while my intention is to create a safe space where I can share what I’ve learned in my journey toward letting go, the reality is that we are on this journey together. We are here to do this work and create this amazing space where we can support each other in our journeys of “letting go”. 

I am forever grateful for the path (which at times was dark and quite difficult) that led me here, to do the work that I do, and support you all, no matter where you are in your journey of “Letting Go.”
