I saw a lot of social media posts at the start of 2019 referring to 2018 as being a tough one. I would concur. 2017 was wrapping up on a very high note, yet my intuition kept telling me that something about this was off for me.
I couldn’t shake it.
So I took a step back, despite how others may feel.
When a not so awesome event dredges up old stuff from your life its also not awesome but not uncommon; but when a positive event acts like a tripwire I knew it was time to clean things up.
2018 was a year of letting go of stuff I had been packing around for a lifetime. The emotional baggage I had a strong emotional tether attached to needed my attention, the time was ripe. Coupled with the fact that I had a milestone birthday in December 2018, I knew it was stuff that was not serving me and I didn’t want to bring it forward into my new decade.
Sometimes dealing with past stuff is akin to cleaning your oven racks. Lots of hard work, time, scrubbing and getting the right tools and support to be successful.
Untangling yourself from past relationships, experiences, stuff etc can take a lot of effort, but choosing to release the attachments so that you can move forward feeling lighter is powerful and empowering.
What have you let go of that has impacted you positively?
What are you holding onto that you feel would make a difference in you life if you let go?
