Understanding Your Daily Focus
In this week’s Daily Focus, I want to talk about something that I,
and so many others, struggle with. Letting go. Why is it so hard to move on?
From relationships, sure, but also from work at the end of the day, from a good
book, from a house you only lived in for a year? What is happening within
ourselves that we struggle to let go? Why is the bad we know easier to accept
than the unknown, which may ultimately end up being better?
I have always struggled with letting go, which also means I sometimes struggle with getting attached. I know the bittersweet ending that will come along, and I find myself asking… is it worth it? But if we hold ourselves back for fear of change, we will miss out on so many opportunities. For me, the key to finding balance here has been to embrace my sense of independence, to know that I am capable and strong on my own and that if others want to walk alongside me, they are welcome to.

“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
This is key for me—control. I want to have control over
everything, which is impossible. The best we can do is have control over
ourselves, and not make huge sacrifices without receiving love and energy in
return. Today, take a look at where you’re giving energy and where you are receiving
it back. Is it balanced?

“The truth is, unless you let go, unless you forgive
yourself, unless you forgive the situation, unless you realize that the
situation is over, you cannot move forward.” –Steve Maraboli
Emotional energy is such an interesting concept to me. It ties us to people, to things, to our work, and our hobbies. But sometimes it ties us there long after our own usefulness has run out. Forgive yourself today, and really look at where growth has happened, where it has stopped happening, and where there is potential for it in the future.

“If you want to forget something or someone, never hate it,
or never hate him/her. Everything and everyone that you hate is engraved upon
your heart; if you want to let go of something, if you want to forget, you
cannot hate.” –C. JoyBell C.
Hate is just another way to stay emotionally involved. If you
allow someone to have that much control over you, you’re not going to be able
to fully move forward. Be angry at what happened. Be thankful you’re not that
kind of person. Think about the kind of person you want to be and focus on that

“Letting go means to come to the realization that some people
are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.” –Steve Maraboli
This is one of the hardest lessons I ever learned. Just because someone was important, just because they were good, it doesn’t mean that they are meant to be there forever. It is possible to outgrow people and to still be thankful for the growth and care that happened during that time.

“Maybe it’s time to let it go. It probably doesn’t even weigh
that much now.” –Carissa’s Wierd
This is one of my favorite song lyrics from my youth, and it has
stuck with me. Sometimes we don’t know how heavy something is until we put it
down. Put it down, rest, and see if you really want to pick it back up after
you feel how light you can be.

“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are
signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more
strength to know when to let go and then do it.” –Ann Landers
Strength is such an odd concept, because much of the time it’s showy, in your face display, and other times it is quiet, reserved, and out of sight. Being loud, being seen, winning—it doesn’t correlate to strength in any meaningful way. Sometimes the strongest act is just quiet control over your own actions.

“Last night I lost the world, and gained the Universe.” –C. JoyBell C.
This. This is at the root of all change, of all fear. When we
don’t know what we’re going to gain, we can only see what we’re losing, and
when you’re losing your entire world, that can be terrifying. But there are
other worlds. There are infinite worlds. Don’t you want to know what’s waiting
for you out there?
