Think about any attachments that are depleting your emotional reserves.Consider letting them go. — Oprah Winfrey
Today is a day to let go! To surrender.. to live.. to breathe!
Just for today I did not worry.
Just for today I did not anger.
Just for today I cried a little…
I cried when I let go of the attachment to the expectation of how things may turn out to be.
Today I lived!
A few years ago I created an attachment jar. In this jar, I put all the expectations on how I wanted things to go… When I do put on paper and release it to my jar.. All worries are lifted.. and guess what? Things end up pretty much turning out just fine.. sometimes even better than fine! So.. Let Go!!
Today, day 26, I am going to let go of all my worries, put them in a jar, and enjoy what the day brings. I feel, this is a true ACT of self-love don’t you think?
“We are like children building a sand castle. We embellish it with beautiful shells, bits of driftwood, and pieces of colored glass. The castle is ours, off-limits to others. We’re willing to attack if others threaten to hurt it. Yet despite all our attachment, we know that the tide will inevitably come in and sweep the sand castle away. The trick is to enjoy it fully but without clinging, and when the time comes, let it dissolve back into the sea.”
