This statement is so bold and terrifying, yet so simple. Leave what does not serve you. You’d think this would be easy, right? Deep down on some level I feel like we all know things that exist in our lives that do not serve us. Whether it be a job, a person, habits, or the way we talk to ourselves in our mind. If we take a moment to reflect, we know what isn’t serving us. The real question is, are we going to do something about it?
That’s the terrifying part, taking action. Once we take the time to understand aspects throughout life that do not serve us, it very well could change our entire life if we decide to actually leave, change, or let go of those things. One of the main reasons why it’s terrifying is because we’d have to give up control, our sense of predictability.
When we choose to make a change, most of the time, we don’t know what is on the other side of it. The human mind loves to know exactly what is going to happen, to foresee the outcomes. When the reality is, we have no fucking clue.
Why is it that so many people continue to choose things that no longer serve them?
This has been a prominent lesson for me in the past 6 months. I was noticing that my lingering sense of despair was a direct result of me not letting go of what no longer serves me. Which was a big smack in the face because I realized it was me standing in my own way. I was preventing myself from living my best life, while also choosing misery. Yet again, I was sick of my own shit.
I started doing the scary things, and guess what? My life is drastically different, but in the best way possible! I’m not going to lie, it has been hard. I have felt a lot of pain along the way because it is a form of grieving. I am in the process of shedding my old way of being.
As a result of leaving what no longer serves me, I am leaving room for what DOES serve me to enter my life.
Every time I empty myself by letting go, I am then presented with an opportunity that is in alignment for my highest good. When we listen and take action, the universe provides. I know it is terrifying, but trust that you will be provided for. Everything is working out in the exact way it is meant to.
So, what are you waiting for? Your most fulfilled life is waiting for YOU! Take inventory of the things that exist in life that you believe are no longer serving you. Then ask yourself where can you start to take some action steps?
When we see the light in ourselves, we create light in others.
