Life is not easy, and that's why the most important thing we can do is to begin mastering our thoughts and our perception. This way we become more resilient and can just go with the flow instead of fight, scream and in vain hang on to toxic things, that are not working for us, even if we feel that we NEED that person, that habit, that food, that drug etc.
Sometimes we need to let go of things we love too.
After all, isn't that what love is about - if you love something set it free. If it comes back to you, it's yours, if not - it never was. And in the end, everyone is free to move on and understand what they need in life without trying to get if from things and people that just can't satisfy our soul hunger.
Many of us are living broken promises and illusions that have nothing to do with reality.
Perhaps we think, that we can change someone. So we spend our entire life, hoping... silently chronically suppressed and hurting; dying from the inside out - in the name of "love". Or maybe we think Monday will magically give us more willpower to follow some ridiculously low calorie diet, and our ABS will appear in time for bikini season. Or we might think that if we go on a juice detox, we will also detox our emotions and crappy life. Many of us seem to think that if it's not on social media, it doesn't exist.
We may think that love is pretty pictures on social media, where we can get the approval that we can't give ourselves, because we feel like hollow shells.
And yet, we all get so far from what real living is, that it seems out of reach. Like Barbie and Ken eating sushi at NOBU in Malibu is the only way to be happy. And for the rest of us, we desperately search for a quick-fix for love or break our credit by trying to buy perfection, love and happiness - and likes.
Instead of setting resolutions this year, figure out what it is you need to let go of.
We need to let go before something else can take its place. Life is built on faith - and faith is being committed to the process without the visual proof. It is one of the most difficult things in life - to let go and have faith in the journey. But there is no other way. You cannot get amazing things, if you are not willing to let go of all the garbage things, that you are trying to fill that void in your life with.
When you are willing to let go of garbage things, you can attract something that resonates with your core values and soul hunger.
Most resolutions fail, because we are not willing to let go of things. You can't attract new things or build habits into your life, if you are too scared of letting go of your attachments.
Write 3 things below that you are willing to give up in the new year - people, friends, relationships, places, habits, stuff, things, self-beliefs, whatever is weighing you down, pin-point it and commit to stepping into your authentic self by letting go and having faith in that which has not yet come to materialize. I want you to print this out and stick it on your fridge door. Because you will need this every day to remind you of taking action and not sweet-talking yourself into your old destructive patterns.
I AM WILLING TO GIVE UP WHAT NO LONGER SERVES ME (PEOPLE, PLACES, FOODS, HABITS, SELF-BELIEFS ETC.):
