Taking things personally. Most people don’t care and they frequently do things that work for them at that moment. A lot of times what people do have nothing to do with you. You just happen to be there.
I am willing to let go of my need to have every assignment in on time. While that might sound irresponsible, I really want to make self-care (as daily exercise) a priority, and the fact that I feel like I need to apologize when I say that is probably just more evidence that I need to let some of the perfectionism go.
I recently got to know a most beautiful piece of spoken and music by Ram Dass and Jon Hopkins, where it is said to let judgements and oppinions of the mind be judgements and oppinions of the mind. So this would be a most welcome aspect in order to become free and /or happy. Thank you to the creators of this beautiful and touching presentation of truth.
Ose, this is very beautiful. Thank you so much for sharing 🙏
Allowing my mood to shift just based on someone else’s words. Letting go of codependency is freedom friends!
Elaine, you are so right. Thank you for reminding me of this 😊
The past patterns.
The belief that I always do mistakes.
Fear of joy, fear of freely expressing my creativity.
Ah yes, Anna. Past patterns. You are so right. I am a work in progress on releasing mine past patterns but I am trying ❤️️
guilt, anxiety, regret and past patterns that do not serve me.
I let go of everything that no longer serves me and my highest, healthiest self.
Self … the person I used to think I was. I donated all the suits (of armor) to thrift stores, reconnected with everyday people, tossed aside all the roles, positions and tokens, became invisible and anonymous, … and in the last 6 months, even stopped cutting my hair! Who was that guy?
I’m willing to let go of the belief that I have the answers. There was a time when I believed that I did and I time when I lost that and thus became lost; I didn’t know what to be in place of that person. Now I’m comfortable with not knowing. I wake up in the morning not knowing and it’s ok 🙏
Dear Sandra, I agree with you and Cintia, not knowing as a path to freedom. But I need reflections, meditations, courage, humility. Feel embraced.
Anna, you’re right and I need those things too. Thank you for reminding me of them ❤️️ I was thinking of a time – many years in fact – when I believed that I needed certainty. I needed control, a framework to hang everything on. Whenever I didn’t have an answer or didn’t know what to do, that framework and the certainty/safety net that it provided would crumble and I would feel anxious and not quite know who I was or what my place was in the world. I’m describing this so badly! I’m still not comfortable with uncertainty and not knowing, but I am learning that it’s ok and that I can live alongside it. Peace to you, Anna 🙏
I thought about it this morning. I agree with you!
I’m comfortable with not knowing. Not knowing makes me free and happy
Hi Cintia! I can’t say I feel free and happy in not knowing but I do know I am happier and more comfortable with it than I was. It’s still quite new to me. I’m learning to live alongside it and accept that it’s ok. And it’s very freeing not to be focussed on answers and instead to accept what comes up and embrace it. Enjoy your day, Cintia 😌❤️️
Expectations….maybe easier said than done. But having these ideas in my head about how something should be that differ from what is in reality, just leads to sadness and disappointment. If I let go of that, would happiness fill the vacant space?
Time wasters – computer games, television, etc. There is so much I want to accomplish and I settle for nothingness instead! Time to let them go and live out my days.
Not my stuff – but I’ve let go worrying about it recently. My daughter told me that even my daughter-in-law wouldn’t want me to worry so much about leaving too much stuff behind after I die. I recently realized – they’ll just need to pay someone to haul it away! And my estate will handle that. I saw a junk collector putting furniture and pictures and stuff in his truck. I hoped he’d find homes for the stuff, but he said no one wants things like that. He thought the woman had passed and there was no one to deal with her things. But I’m sure the condo staff had removed whatever they wanted by that time 🙂
I want to focus less on me being the center of the universe and see all things as mutual attractors (all with equal pull). And rather than me being a center by which all others orbit around me, I wish to focus more on the planets that surround me.. For I am weary of focusing on my own needs. And want to live a more altruistic future especially towards those I love. I want to be less materialistic, focus on what I have rather than on what I don’t have.
My first thought was guilt and regret. Remorse is OK, but guilt is not good for anyone. It is like wet cement, slowly drying and dragging you down into this hopeless hole of darkness….. Remorse says I am sorry for what I have done, and will do better. Guilt is like a layer of death, a slow death kind of thing, dark, hopeless…Nope! Not doing that.
