Letting Go: A Key to Success in life

Many of us have fallen victim to the belief that to create the life we really want to live, we have to have more, get more, and be more than we have, got or are today. In reality, the first step to creating what we want in life is to let go of things that are not serving us the way we desire to be served.

This could mean that we have to let go of impatience, control, and resentments against others and ourselves in order to find the inner peace we so desire.

It might mean we have to let go of the thought that "when these things change, I'll really be happy", in order to focus on your happiness today. Actually you can create happiness today with nothing changing. Yes, very possible indeed.

Or maybe it's time to let go of an addiction to alcohol, food, spending or drugs in order to bring in the clarity needed to truly love yourself.

Or letting go of a known religious or spiritual path so that your mind can be opened to a deeper connection with the Divine.

It could mean letting go of a job that you cannot stand in order to find one that you become thrilled about! Or letting go of a relationship that may not be right for you or your partner, so that you have the space open to bring into your lives individuals more compatible with where you currently are in life.

Before we create, there has to be space in your life open and available for this "new thing" to fit into.

Slow down and look at areas of your life that are not serving you, and decide today to address them or let them go. Your intuition, your higher self, is the best council to ask for advice that will be the right answer for you.

Ask trusted friends for their advice, then remember that You alone must make the end decision. Letting go is the key to creating a more successful life.

Love, peace, Rev. David
