We’ve all heard the expression let it go and, for most, this is something that is easier said than done. Another expression that is easier to work with rather than let it go is the expression let it be. Let it be activates the law of allowing. When we can allow things to just be, we are much more able to accept what we cannot change, change what we do have control over, and learn valuable life lessons such as forgiveness and kindness in the process.
As this year comes to a close, take some time to reflect on what you still may be holding onto that is holding you back or keeping you in blame, anger, judgment or resentment.
Take out a journal and work through these exercises in order to let go and let be, and essentially, wipe your emotional slate clean in order to welcome in the new year and new decade!
