LET GO!! It sounds so easy; why then is it such a challenge?

Do you find ‘letting go of control’ as hard as I do? I struggle with letting go all the time!

Letting go of securities and safety, so I could start on a path filled with insecurities towards a happier life. It took me years to gather the courage to do this.

Letting go of judgment of myself and of others. Sure I judge others, but these days I usually have enough awareness to know it tells me a lot about myself.

Mostly I judge myself though; I am my harshest critic.

I am however getting better at questioning my ‘shoulds’, my ‘coulds’ and through that I’m getting better at letting judgement go

Letting go of convictions; they are among the things holding me back.

Letting go of fear, which keeps me from moving forward.

I am learning fear is often just another story I tell myself. When I change the story I can start moving again.

All of these things I let and am still letting go of turn out to be just things, actions, behaviours I thought gave me control over my life and my circumstances. There was no control, only the illusion of control.
