Letting go of the Baggage

As human beings we sometimes have trouble letting go of the obvious. Not realizing that one of the simplest ways to be happy is letting go of the things or person that makes us unhappy.

We need to give ourselves permission to feel anger, pain and/or resentment, then we need to let it go -  with love. At some point we must realize that some people can stay in our heart but not in our life.

  • How do we say good-bye to someone we never had?
  • Why do we shed tears for someone we were never with?
  • Why do we love someone whose love was never ours?

One of the happiest moments ever is when we find the courage to let go of what we can't change. Some people come into our life for the sole purpose of teaching us how to let go.

The only thing harder than letting go is moving on. We need to have confidence in ourselves in order to make a new start.

We don't always need a plan. Sometimes we just need to breathe, trust our instincts and let go.

"Letting go means to come to the realization that some people are part of our history but not part of our destiny." author Steve Maraboli
