Authentically letting things go
Sometimes we get overburdened with life. A lot of people, especially women, tend to please the important people in their lives first and take care of their owns needs after. This can get really overwhelming after a while. Setting boundaries is not only healthy, it’s also necessary.
Sometimes we outgrow a relationship or a job. And sometimes it’s simply time to move on from a situation that limits us. Holding on too long to a job, a place or a relationship then only causes pain.
Change is the only thing that is constant and most of the time it helps us to grow and evolve. But often, it’s not an easy feat to let go, especially if we are comfortable in our discomfort. It takes courage and strength to move on from a situation or relationship that we have outgrown. So how do we really let things go?
1) Get clear on what you want.
What kind of job/employment/business do you want to spend your valuable time on, what kind of people or team do you want to be working with, or what do you desire and need from a relationship? Meditate and journal on that. Get really clear on what you want in your life and what kind of people and activities are worth your precious time.
2) Make a decision to move forward, and allow yourself to grieve.
If what you currently have in your life does not match what you envision for yourself, and there is no way or willingness to transform it (and that usually takes two) make the decision to let it go. I’m a huge fan of transformation and I believe that ANY relationship can be transformed. But when the other person is unwilling, or when the timing is off, it would be best to leave on good terms and maybe revisit the relationship at a different time when growth has happened for both partners.
It may not be wise to quit your job just yet, but if you are unhappy there, make the decision to look for a different way to make money and pay the bills. Just admitting to yourself that you want to leave might already open up new possibilities faster than you think!
Be grateful for the learning, the experiences and the people you met there. That is part of the grieving process and will make the transition - when you eventually leave - easier for you and others.
3) Each day, focus your time and energy on what you want in your life.
Choose activities and relationships that move you toward those things and people. Allow yourself to form new habits that inspire you and make you feel alive every day. As you spend more and more time and energy on the things and people that help you move toward your new goals, you automatically raise your vibration, attracting situations and people of a higher frequency. Who and what is meant to be with you on your higher path will organically come to you. The things and people who limit you or simply aren’t on the same higher vibration will fall away, without you feeling guilty.
Letting go can be a liberating and exhilarating process! You will notice the immediate surge in energy and power because you altered your predictable future and started taking a stand for the things you REALLY want in your life.
