Understanding Your Daily Focus
I have written about letting go before, and I will again.
Loss, and its mother, Grief, are not things we go through and then leave
behind. Our lives are a constant, shifting landscape of gain and loss. We are
who we are, in part, because of the things we’ve had to endure. None of us get
to live a long, fulfilled life full of meaningful connections without suffering
the loss of some of them. So how do we know when to cut our losses? How do we
cross the line into giving up the bad we know for the potentially worse—the
Humans have always been scared of the dark. We can’t see what’s there, waiting for us. Danger lurks. We have a loss of control, we feel helpless, even if the light around us is shining down on things we know no longer serve us, or worse, actively harm us. In this week’s Daily Focus, I want to look at letting go yet again and try to see it through a lens of wonder, possibilities, and control over the self.

“You will find that it is not a one-shot deal, this
letting go. You must do it again and again and again. It’s kind of like
breathing. You can’t breathe just once. Try it: Breathe just once. You’ll pass
out.” –Gordon MacKenzie
This is really the crux of it, and why I keep coming back to
this subject. Letting go, loss, grief, all it encompasses; it requires time,
energy, and return to focus. This can be hard! But it has to be done. Part of
self-care and basic body maintenance is making sure you’re dealing with things
that need to be dealt with, even if you feel like you’ve done this before. Do

“There is beauty in Simplicity. There is power in
Forgiveness. There is wisdom in Letting Go.” –Steve Maraboli
If you’re struggling to find the answer today, the answer
might be that there is no answer. Not everything is solvable, no matter how
good our intentions or how reckless our work ethic is. Some things are simply
not for us to know, or change, or receive. It’s okay to walk away.

“Letting go doesn’t mean that you don’t care about
someone anymore. It’s just realizing that the only person you really have
control over is yourself.” –Deborah Reber
When it comes down to it, letting go, or really, holding on,
is all about control. We want to shape our reality to meet what our mind says
it should be, but this is just a recipe for disappointment. Think back on how
many of the best moments in your life were unplanned and out of your control.
Try to think of what you may be losing by knowing the end of the story before
it’s time to get there.

“We have to unclasp our palms and let go of every
alternate reality where we’re happier, stronger, brighter because of all the
things we did differently. Those universes do not exist. But ours does. And
it’s okay here, if we open our eyes up and let it be.” –Heidi
Once again, our own ideas and attempts at controlling
reality can only really hinder us. It’s great to plan for a future, to have
that vision board, that wish list—but don’t spend all of your energy in a
reality that doesn’t exist. You are here, now, just as you are, and worthy of
attention, love, and time spent on yourself.

“Letting go of the past means opening up to the
future, and sometimes the unknown is scarier than the past.” –Tamara
It’s true that the bad we know is often much easier to welcome than the potentially bad we don’t know, but once again, I want to focus on the positive aspects of letting go; of change, opportunity, and new worlds. Every day is a chance to do something new, to break the mold, and start living the life you’ve only dreamed of.

“Good-bye to the past, with its mysteries which would
never be fully unfolded.” –Iris Murdoch
Sometimes the thing we have to say goodbye to is the
potential—the thing we don’t know. We can spend so much of our time and energy
searching for answers, it’s what makes us as humans remarkable, we want to know
everything. But this way lies madness, as there are simply some things
we are better off not knowing, or perhaps harder to swallow, we were never
meant to know at all.

“We are shaped by what we hold on, and we are
fashioned by what we let go.” –Sarvesh Jain
Part of letting go means looking at what we’re choosing to hold onto. We can let go of the aspects that drain time, energy, and delight from us. But we can also hold onto the things we do get things out of, even if it’s just memories. I try to keep in mind that you don’t have to hate something to leave it behind. It’s okay to walk away with gratitude and fond memories, knowing that the next phase of life is just ahead.
