Trees are the clearest example of how natural it really is to let go of things that no longer serve us. “Trees shed their leaves is a state of letting go. When trees shed their leaves, they don’t rush to shake their branches to get rid of leaves that no longer serve them. They just stop and the leaves fall off just when they’re supposed to go. Neither before nor after. The tree just let them go. This is the state of letting go.” Letting things go, which involves a conscious choice against a physical action, can also be very painful since you are not yet ready to do so. Especially if your heart and mind are singing two different songs. Although letting things go is not an easy path for many of us, when we choose it, it becomes a path that includes lightness and plenty of freedom for many of us. Letting go is not an action that we can do with force, hesitation, stubbornness or ambition. Letting go is not an action, it is a state. Just like trees. Like when trees shed their leaves. Without trying to escape. By standing still, patiently, and accepting what is. Letting go is a state of releasing all doubt, anxiety, and fear about a situation, person, or outcome. It is letting go of everything that spoils your happiness and is no longer serving you on your journey. Letting go is a choice to decide not to worry about the things that are out of your control anymore and instead focus on the things you can control. Letting go creates space for new beginnings: it purifies you from what happened yesterday and opens the door to new opportunities today. Letting go is about accepting what is happening now and not worrying about what will happen tomorrow. It involves much more than just saying you’re letting things go. It’s really an internal process that needs to happen for you to feel better and live a healthy life. As a kind reminder, it’s important that we honor where we are on our individual letting go journeys. This is a process that can be more challenging for some than others. Wherever you are right now, knowing that letting go is okay here. We owe ourselves to be kind Every day, we are constantly reminded to embrace the moment and all it has to offer. Because this is a new opportunity for us to start over. No matter how many times we stumble on the journey to let go, the present is here to remind us not to get stuck in yesterday or worry what will happen tomorrow. Each day we have the choice to hold on a little longer and conclude that today is the day we will finally let go.
