The Language of Letting Go

As I am about to grow another year older there are some things, people, grudges, clothes, expectations, etc. that I need to let go of. Their shelf life has expired and its fruitless to give yourself to the things and people that don't serve you best..I learn and relearn this all the time because I put my whole heart into something and when it doesn't work out I get so upset..because damnit I wanted it to. We've all been betrayed, it let's work on the art of forgiveness. I know its a practice, just like your yoga teacher tells you.

If over time you express your needs and feelings and they aren't being seen or taken into account, have the courage to pick up and leave. Having high standards and the courage to maintain them is how you make sure that only the best kind of relationships remain in your life. It's the mark of a master to meet the needs of their partner and their friends. The most important relationship is the one we have with ourselves- yet all too often we put too much emphasis on our relationships with others and not nearly enough on our relationships with ourselves. Like the name of this blog..its all about mastering peace to create a masterpiece of yourself. I think its worth it to try to evolve in all the many wonderful ways we can and that can be as broad or as specific as you make it.

I read something this morning that recharged my batteries and so I'll pass it along.

*The truth is our finest moments are most likely to occur when we are feeling deeply uncomfortable, unhappy, or unfulfilled. For it is only in such moments, propelled by our discomfort, that we are likely to step out of our ruts and start searching for different ways or truer answers.*

*The only way to learn forgiveness is to be betrayed. You might understand the intellectual concept of forgiveness, but you will only learn how to truly forgive when someone has done something that requires you to love them and let it go. Life demands these hurtful experiences for you to learn how forgiveness feels, it could be no other way. If there is anyone in your life that you must forgive instead of seeing them as someone who has hurt you, try to see them as someone who was sent to teach you forgiveness adn thank them for this gift- then forgive them and let it go. They lose all their power over you that way.*
