Know when to let go.

Many of us think of an ideal life as an unchanging state of perfection. We’d prefer to get our lives exactly as we’d wish and then have them stay that way—forever.

But things just don’t work that way. Life is about change and flow. Things, people, and situations come and go.

Sometimes we struggle against the process. We resist change and try to hang on to what is rather than welcoming what will be, whatever that might be.

Usually when we strive to have things remain unchanged, we suffer. It’s painful and exhausting, both emotionally and physically. We’re putting a lot of energy into a fight we can never win.

There is wisdom in knowing when to just let go. We can choose to allow life’s process to go on unimpeded by our refusal to accept it. When we relax into whatever occurs, we have more energy to deal with it and move on.

Today’s message invites me to trust in divine timing and flow. When I accept life’s shifts more graciously, I’ll be happier and freer.

Please reflect and share. Are you good at accepting shift?
