Releasing to Let Go

By Heather Macon

New chapters often reveal new beams of light, beams of possibility, and change.

I often experience waves of anxiety when I think about change and transition, fear of change, and grieving the thought of letting go.
Releasing to let go can be healthy in various ways. I am currently in my last week of a job that has shaken me to the core. I am transitioning out of one of the most challenging, uncomfortable, rewarding, exciting, disappointing, uncertain, yet transformative experiences thus far. I am leaving yet another job, moving to another city, shedding relationships, and learning more about myself. This time for me has been about being more observant, recognizing my wants and needs, my overall self-development, and my learning process. My internal growth has enhanced; although I’ve been confused and uncomfortable at times, I am grateful.

Fear of letting go for me is attached to not being able to grasp onto anything. Often, I am caught up in my own personal tornado, and I need to hold onto everything and glue tiny pieces of my life back together. With that, I am holding onto past behaviors, thoughts, and experiences, and I am not allowing new things to flow abundantly into my life.

Letting go of the need to control every aspect of my life has been a common theme that I am ready to address transparently. I owe it to myself to free the space in my mind for more positive thinking and abundant blessings.

I’m evolving, developing, and changing; the souls that have allowed me to be me with no apologies, the experiences that have shaped a new way of thinking, and the lessons that have allowed me to break but re-structure stronger than before; thank you.

    I have also transitioned to a new job and city. I often have to remind myself of the things I am letting go to embrace the new. One day at a time but I am grateful and appreciative of what is in store.

    Thank you for sharing your words!

  2. I do enjoy the way you have presented this particular problem plus it really does provide me personally a lot of fodder for thought. On the other hand, coming from what precisely I have witnessed, I really hope as the actual commentary pile on that people keep on issue and not get started upon a tirade regarding the news du jour. All the same, thank you for this outstanding piece and whilst I do not really concur with the idea in totality, I value your perspective.
