letting go...

i think that letting go is the hardest thing that you can do in life...
letting go of media's perception of what beauty is
letting go of what your parents or others "think" is best of you

letting go of past hurts and past pains

letting go of the fact that you aren't really in control of your life

letting go of the "hopes" and the "dreams" and facing your realities, which can actually be a whole lot BETTER than what you thought life could really be

letting go of being angry, being mad, being sad

letting go of a relationship

letting go of being in control-

letting go of yourself and allowing yourself to just "be" to just be in the moment, be in the day, and stop worrying, stop stressing over things that you have no control over...
i find myself coming to the end of 07 and looking forward to 08, and saying to myself

"just let go"

life has a way of working itself out, and you can't force things to happen...

i have a tendency of over analyzing everything, you name it i over think it...

and you know what i am tired...i am tired of thinking all of the time...my brain, my mind, my spirit just needs a rest...

its time to let go...just let go and let life happen how its supposed to happen...

clearly i don't have the answers, clearly i don't even have an idea...so its time that i just turn things over and let things be...

so as the last month of the year works itself through and i pledge to revitalize my body, my mind and my spirit...and although i know that i have been raised and trained to be critical of mostly myself...i have decided

i am just simly letting go and letting life be what its gonna be

Tiff, lettng go is not a bad thing. I understand where you're coming from because I like to control every thing in my life and when I don't, I'm feeling out of control. Sometimes its best to just chill, sit back & watch life unfold.

I am so working on this right now. It's not easy to do sometime, but so necessary for life!

PREACH! This is something I need to work on too. I'm pretty involved with someone now, and we have this discussion all the time. She is more outward with her over-analysis of a lot of things which makes being around her feel unnatural sometimes. I'm usually more inward, but at the same time, it adds to the discomfort because I don't make it known.

Best wishes on your resolution.

@bmw-i am her! I am you! i analyze EVERYTHING...sometimes i'll say something sometimes i won't...sometimes he'll say something, sometimes he won't...hence we feel unnatural at times too....so i can totally relate...but i am working on it too...to just let things roll, see what happens what develops...but not just in that but in life in general

@ki-you are so right sometimes life can totally get the best of you and you have to be able to just sit back and just let it happen the good and the bad

@bmaore bap-its not easy at all...but we gotta do it...

@ananda-as this is the last year of the month, i find that its time for me to surrender all as well...i can't go into 08 not adjusted...

@trapped-i am going to try to do just that, sit back and watch my life unfold, all of my life

There is so much wisdom in what you have said here. I'm letting go of a relationship that I just tolerated for the sake of love and for the hope of a fulfilled and satisfying life. I feel as if I've been in bondage and now set free. I've always known that you have to let go and let God do the rest. Now each day, I live in the Joy of knowing that I am in the process of letting go...and just being me, enjoying me and encouraging me to take time to breathe and feel life!
