Are you still holding on to things that no longer serve you?
Often we outgrow things, yet we have a tendency to want to hold on to them even when they are no longer useful, or even good for us.
Who hasn’t kept an article of clothing that no longer fits or is out of style? Perhaps you have an item of furniture around that’s like Fraser’s Dad’s chair, duct-taped and well-worn, but a part of a past that no longer fits your present.
My Dad loves to tell the story of how he persuaded me to give up my pacifier to a horse who needed it more than me. I have always loved horses and at the tender age of two, I thought I was doing a good deed by gifting my pacifier to the chestnut mare. Apparently, he also said he’d get me a swing set if I did. Seems like a pretty good trade to me still.
I gave up the pacifier and never looked back.
Where in your life are you holding on to things that are like security blankets or pacifiers that offer no real value, they simply keep you stuck or comfortable?
What are you holding on to that is holding you back, cluttering your mental and physical space, and keeping you from moving forward in your life?
Is it a job, a relationship, a way of being, an addiction?
Today take an inventory of some aspect of your life and let go of something that no longer serves you.
