Letting Go of the Past #reverb10

December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

This year has definitely been about letting go in more ways than one.

It took me 5 years after my mother’s passing for me to deal and sort through her storage.  (Grandma has also begun to let go of her daughter’s things and is not fighting me as much as I decide what stays and what goes.) I had actively begun to  sort through over 50 years of history to discover myself and in the process realizing that I am stronger than I give myself credit for. The more stuff that I donate and/or sell, the more room I’m making for the life that I deserve.

I also had to let go of folks both professionally and personally in my life. I had begun to listen and honor my gut instinct, instead of muddling along and feeling stifled. However, let’s not drone on.

I had also let go of measuring up to people’s expectations. I realize that at the end of the day, the only person I need to answer to is myself. Isn’t that’s what this is all about?
