What’s possible when you let go?

“We can’t be afraid of change. You may feel very secure in the pond that you are in, but if you never venture out of it, you will never know that there is such a thing as an ocean, a sea. Holding onto something that is good for you now, may be the very reason why you don’t have something better.”  ―  C. JoyBell C.

We sometimes go off track to follow the pack in pursuit of what we recognize as happiness on the outside.  That’s when we feel off and conflicted on the inside.  There is something else calling us into the unknown.

I have had points in my life when I realized that I had gone so far down the wrong path that I felt confused, lost, and stuck.  The tendency during these times is to hold tighter – we need to make this work because it is working for everyone else.  This resistance to what wants to be birthed within us causes deep suffering.

Instead, what if we let go?  Yes, that exposes us to uncertainty, which we know is scary, but it also creates space to try something different – listening to our heart and trusting our gut.  What is possible then?

What opens up when you practice the courage of letting go and surrendering to your inner voice?

  1. Living life to the fullest takes courage, for sure. Being stuck is what happens when you are spiraling down, instead of up. You know when you are going down as you spiral, and it takes courage, strength and faith to stop and go back up — courage to acknowledge it, strength to do what others object to, and faith that you are doing what is best for you.

    Great post.

  2. Wisdom in a nutshell. Thank you. I often make the analogy of two trapeze artists on two platforms intending to swing to the middle and exchange bars. If they don’t let go it won’t happen.

    • Thanks, Alex! I’ll be at the meet-up on Tuesday. If there are individuals you know who would find the blog relevant and helpful, I would appreciate if you could share. Thanks so much.
