As the year comes to a close, start to think of everything that you’re holding onto. Are you holding onto relationships that support you in your journey in life, or are you holding onto relationships that cause you pain, and retard your potential for growth? Are your goals and dreams practical? Do you allow past mistakes to haunt you? Do you allow things that you can’t change, to weigh you down, and prevent you from making the most of your reality?
Holding on always does more damage than letting go. So, let go of everything that does not help you to nurture a better you. Release your hold on friends that don’t contribute to your happiness. Do not continue to build a relationship with someone that doesn’t see your value, and doesn’t make you feel special. Also, let go of goals that aren’t within your reach. This doesn’t mean you shouldn’t reach for the stars, but don’t reach for stars you can’t see. There are many stars out there, just keep your mind and heart on those you can visualize. Always keep in mind that the answer to most problems that seem unbearable is: let go!
