I start my writing with a quote:
"There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. And you may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any."
— Hugh Laurie
This week the topic has come up several times of letting go and why we choose to remain stuck in ways of thinking and behaving. This is a controversial topic as most who are "stuck" in the mindset at the present moment do not feel they have a choice to become "unstuck" so to say.
It also may feel to the person who is holding on to those feelings that it would be a disservice to let it go, as if it was not so bad after all. But wait. It was really bad, so I will hold on to it to prove how bad it really was.
Of course, if you are grieving the loss of a loved one, or another severe trauma, you may need more time to heal and to go through the stages of grief and loss. It is a different process.
Here I am talking about past BLAH. Insecurity, past relationships, family strife...that sort of thing. The kind of stuff that just follows you and gets in the way of your ability to receive joy and peace in the present moment.
Realizing that you have a choice is power. Everyday we have a choice. There is no such thing as waiting to be "ready". As the above states, NOW IS AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY...
When is it time to let it go, NOW.
It is an intention, not a destination. Set it every day, and move in that direction.
