Letting go is so hard to do. So as we change out our wardrobes from Summer to Fall, you should metaphorically prune your life as well. It’s ok to let dead things go. Relationships, friendships, jobs, hobbies, if these things are no longer making you grow, it’s a good time to evaluate what should stay in your life. The change in weather always evokes change in your life anyway, so roll with it.
As the trees let go of their leaves, they make room to grow taller and stronger than they’ve ever been. The next year they come back more alive than ever, transformed into something the same, yet new. Take a note from nature, the best way to grow is to let go.
Not sure where to start? Here’s some help:
- Understand and accept that letting go is ok.
- Do you have any bad habits you’ve been trying to kick?
Personally, I’m trying to be more positive and be carful of what kind of energy I put into the universe.
- Who or what comes to mind when you think about the words “drama” and “stress”?
Do your friends stress you out? Is it your job? This person or thing is a great place to start. If you can’t, for example, quit your job tomorrow, start looking. Although I am a fan of ripping off the metaphorical bandaid, it’s ok if you need to take it slow.
