This was the question I started asking myself a while back and continue to do so today. “How would my life be different if I learned to let go of things that have already let go of me?”
I was legally married for 25 years. Ten years into it, I had a spiritual awakening and stopped drinking. God completely took the desire away from me. The marriage was okay for another five, and then we told ourselves we would stay together for the children. Our parents did the same, but I refused. Our children knew we were miserable, and here I am. I let go of who had let me go.
I still do this today, and by God’s grace I’m quick.
The letting go process has been huge in helping me let go in all areas of my life. When I wake up filled with peace, I know I’m living a clean and healthy life. If I wake up feeling uneasy, God is trying to show me something I need to change, or warning me before a storm.
The storms are a lot less intense than they once were. Either they are smaller, or I have become stronger, and more secure in who I am.
There are days when the handful of people I allow into my personal life, enjoy picking on me. They tell me I need to Let It Go Coach! That’s okay though. I know they love me, and I get to fully love them.
