Going through the Letting Go process, I saw immediate change within me. One of the first things I noticed was, it sloughed away my old skin and left me with new. I had accumulated a lot of learned behaviors over the years. I was ready and willing to let go of old thinking and behaviors that no longer served me. My circumstances had changed, so it was time for me to see what that looked like, change and grow along with them.
Another thing I noticed rather quickly was, I had time. I could actually take my time doing things and do things well. It was like I never had time before and this was new to me. God had given me a clean plate and I was going to be very picky about what I put on it.
This life was going to have nourishment! This life I was following my heart, but taking my head with me. Steve Jobs was full of wisdom and I treasure his quotes. Here he says, “Have the courage to follow your heart and intuition, they somehow already know what you truly want to become.” I wanted to help others let go, so here I am.
I knew I was definitely going to take my time. When my daughter and I first started living in our new home, we tended to still feel hurried, like we were on this life or death schedule from before. The Letting Go process gave me the revelation to stop. Just stop everything and enjoy the moment.
If we needed to be somewhere by a certain time, we allowed more time to get ready, so we weren’t rushed getting out the door. Enjoy the moment of getting ready together. We got to know one another on a different level, so much so, there were days we met at the front door wearing the same colors. One of us would always go back and change, but today we call what color we’re wearing beforehand.
Take your time. It’s all we really have and once it’s gone, we can’t get it back. Choose how you spend it and who you share it with. Seek out good things in your life and enjoy every moment. Everything else is secondary.
