Let go, let grow


Courage is the power to let go of the familiar  Raymond LIndquist

I am a procrastinator, especially when it means clearing closets. Reminiscing over when I wore a dress that honestly I will NEVER fit into again or perusing books and files accumulated over 25 years of consulting made me focus on Is it useful? Is it beautiful? or Can I live without it?  It is not an easy task for me to let go of that which has defined me over the years.  Fortunately I found happy new homes for the bags of memories.

This also applies to other areas of our lives. Letting go of what was unlocks freedom for growth.  This is not to dismiss what once was, but rather, Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.- Albert Einstein .  

 In the end only three things matter, how much you lived, how gently you loved and how gracefully you let go of things not meant for you. Buddha 
When I let go of what I am, I become what i might be.
When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. Tao Te Ching

I look forward to a future of possibilities.  This week I invite you to shed that which is outgrown, out dated or no longer defines the you of the future.
