There have been many instances in my life where I should have let go of something – but I did not want to.
I was afraid. I was afraid to let go of relationships, homes, cars, jobs. I would state that ” I don’t like change”. But life itself is in a constant state of change.
I was taught the biggest lesson in letting go…by letting go of my relationship with booze and drugs.
This was a relationship that you could have paid me money to let go of and I wouldn’t. I couldn’t.
I thought that the relationship with my pills and wine were the best friends I ever had. I thought they were holding me together.
It was difficult to let them go but I was to discover a power greater than myself in all of it.
So now today..if I need to let go of something I use my past experiences.
I ask myself “What things in my life did I not want to let go of…but now I am so glad that I did?”
My honest answer is…everything.
