No Longer Holding Back

Life Lessons In Letting Go,

Releasing “STUFF” and

Getting Out There!

Where do you see yourself in 5 or 10 or even 30 years? I am starting to loathe this question. How about living for today and taking it moment by moment instead? How do you measure yourself? I want to measure myself by getting out there and making memories! I also want to share those experiences and memories with myself especially as well as other people too.

  • There is pressure, stress, worry, and anxiety.
  • There is lists of all kinds floating around and taking up valuable space.
  • There is the setting of goals and making resolutions.
  • There is mistakes and failures as well as accomplishments and successes.
  • There is calendaring, scheduling and trying to get around and get things done.
  • There is measuring and progressing.
  • There is adjustments, changes and transitions.
  • There is the falling short, limitations and setting high expectations.

Quite a bulleted list, especially with 24 hours in a day with 4 to 8 hours of that 24 hours asleep!

I understand change is going to happen in my life if I like it or not! I think it is perfectly okay to be a little unseated by change because I am not sure of the impact it will have in my life. It can be a little daunting, especially the uncertainty and the unknown. I like to think in terms of what I need or want or what is best for me in times of change. Turn it into a good and a positive!

I know for me I need to take the time for myself and take care of myself during times of change! This way I can shift and adjust as well as grow and evolve to ultimately make those changes. It is about taking responsibility (control/power) and making a commitment to progress. I like to think of fear as a driving force to love myself to progress, to practice and to experience growth through change!

I am learning that to change I have to address the hurt and deal with my emotions! I also have to let go and release the anger too. That is what is holding me back and resisting change in the first place! I can move on without doing this, but I know I will be in a better place if I do though. Pretty much throw the garbage out and clear the air!

The number one thing I struggle with is valuing, believing and trusting in myself! When I have that trifecta I can pretty much do anything I put my mind to and set myself into action mode. I have to imagine and visualize what I want and need in order to get out there and go for it. I have to be brutally honest with myself at times and give myself a self check of reality too!
