I wanted to hold on. I was operating out of fear. I was holding onto old beliefs, attitudes, relationships, situations, and values. I was allowing fear to keep me from the necessary changes. I was in this space of pulling and tugging a back and forth between my current self and the new me. I continued this gut retching process until one day I got tired. I was tired of living a mediocre life, settling, wanting more but not doing more, and putting my dreams/inner callings on mute. Once I got tired, I knew that I had to shift my mindset to that of unapologetic growth and for that, I had to let go. I started by taking inventory.
Here are a few things that I’ve let go of on my journey.
The need for approval
The need to apologize profusely and explain to EVERYONE
The need to see the full path with safety levers along the way
The need to remain closed off
The need to operate from a place of lack
The need to hang on to fear and comfort for dear life
The need for everything and everyone to be familiar
Once I started to release my emotional and mental growth soared. Getting rid of negative mindsets was also easier! It was at that moment that I realized that by holding on I was blocking my own success. I simply couldn’t make room for anything else in this space (especially not a mindset shift) if I continued to hold on to things that no longer served me.
