This is the first time I've tried to watch one video for 7 days in a row or really stuck with one idea more than one day.
And I wanted to report back because WOW, it made a real difference!
For those who like me have a little trouble staying focused.... I tend to seek the new, exciting, the 'next' of it all. But this last week I forced my attention onto one idea as the over riding theme LETTING GO.
What I found most interesting was the progression from day one to the end of the week in that there was a lot I had to let go of and how this one idea related in so many ways.
I started with first asking to let go of my resistance to moving forward. What I got was I wasn't able to let go of being stuck because I was holding on to being vulnerable if I did let go into what was the unknown.
That led to a progression of ideas over the course of the week and now at the end, I can feel a shift from focusing on what I didn't want to let go of to now, what am I insisting on holding on to?
That shift if important because often we aren't aware of what we are holding on to so tightly because it usually comes under the label of being right, justice, honor, or fairness.
We hold on to a belief because we need to believe more than we need to move on. Letting go of what we hold on to often means the foundation under our feet crumbles and that is very disorienting and uncomfortable.
So what did you focus on this week as your goal to let go of?
What did you find your self wanting to hold on to?
And did you?
This next week I'm asking what it means to be a grown up - stay tuned!
