Happiness is Letting Go!

We, so often have these voices in our head from the past that run our life in the present, which doesn’t allow us to “move forward”.
The Chaplain on my team, at work was kind enough to share the following. I instantly wrote, on the first line, “I must let go of my mother’s negative voices in my head.”

I do practice this every day, as it is important to be reminded of what can run us and ruin the happiness of our future…. I don’t let it and have moved forward in my life.

What do you think you will write? Try it, it will definitely help you move forward where you might be stuck in your life!

To ‘‘let go’’ is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and cherish myself in it.
To ‘‘let go’ is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
To ‘‘let go’’ is to fear less and to love more…….. — Anonymous
