Letting Go

Sometimes there comes a moment where we need to decide instantly to do what we have been fearing to do. It can seem that what we want most is the one thing we may do that can turn our whole life perspective around. If your powerful gut is leading you toward making a decision it is probably happening for a reason. There are certain opportunities placed into our paths for a specific purpose. It can be confusing since we must overcome several obstacles keeping us from our goal sometimes only allowing us to see the negative aspects of things. However, that is going to end because after that bad is going to be the opportunity that was destined to be set aside for you. The only way to move forward with growth is to let go of the one thing that is holding you back. In order to stop continuing certain cycles we must make changes within ourselves, behaviors and beliefs. If we don’t stop to acknowledge the growth in ourselves we may become oblivious to the fact that certain relationships or opportunities we took or held onto are in our way. We must let go, let go of what we are holding so tightly onto. After all, symbolically, we are tightly grasping what we are afraid we may not find again, but open doors and new things can only occur when there is room for them. Letting go is a very important step toward success. We must let go of what we think we cannot have anymore if it is causing negative energy all around us.

Growing from Mistakes and the Unknown Road Post-Graduation


unknown roadWhen we make mistakes we need to get right back up because those mistakes are hidden gems. It is in those mistakes we find out who we are and in that process of fixing those wrongdoings we learn the most. As we pick ourselves back up, we are still looking backward, and cannot fully look ahead, which is the tricky part. The future is and always will be unknown, but that is also the beauty in each and everyday. Each day brings that opportunity to change even the smallest things about our lives or ourselves. Constant change is the magic that binds us all together in the end. As we keep evolving we not only grow stronger internally, but our souls begin to see in a much sharper light. This awareness in changing behavior may bring about a new chapter, whether it is what we desire or not, we know life will continue to unravel and in that awareness we can move forward as altered souls.

Sometimes in life we have these blank slate moments where it almost seems things are coming together. Weirdly enough, things we build up in our heads to be a huge deal may end up not affecting us in the negative ways we imagined. Then why, may we even scold ourselves from the start? Why can’t we just dive in to do the things we feel we really want? Why are we taking so many steps back in life to evaluate situations? It is important to be rational, but at the same time we need to go for the things that we want. If we never try we will never know.

This follows upon graduation occurring at an all at once moment. Just like that, we will have graduated from the place we have called home for the past four years. To say we are scared is an understatement, but why ARE we scared? What is it that we are really afraid of? Although there are several downfalls we may face, didn’t all of those exist throughout college too? Didn’t anything we have ever been fearful of take place at one point during our lives? The idea of needing to have a plan is not always the solution. After all, life is not going to remain the same everyday. The future is unknown so we must choose to live one day at a time. That is very difficult, but in doing so, we give ourselves the chance to figure out what journeys we wish to take. As we venture out in finding our passions and fighting to follow our dreams, let us remember, there is nothing to fear but the fact that we choose to fear. Let this be a way for us to confidently explore the real world that we live in. It is important we challenge ourselves to do the things we thought we couldn’t. Aim high because you never know if you would not have gotten the chance to do so. Work hard, connect with those around you, and love strong. If you find love don’t be afraid to connect with someone who may help support and guide you through your passions. We are starting a new chapter in our lives and we can choose to live it without fear and with someone special by our side. Be open to new change and allow yourself to adjust in positive ways. Love yourself!
