Kindly Let Go

Sick of it whatever it’s called sick of the names. I dedicate every pore to what’s here-

Beginning again is difficult work.

There is another way to approach the idea of “beginning again“. One that very well may be just as difficult, risky, tedious and rich … We can begin anew by “being kind” not only to ourselves but to those close by.

In our ordinary day-to-day encounters, at work, the gym or with our friends and family, we have countless opportunities to practice being kind, beginning again, building new relationships with ourselves and with those around us. Every morning we rise for the long day ahead, we can start fresh, letting go, beginning again.

When we embrace kindness, (beginning again) we encounter opportunities for deeper connections we very well may have missed in the past.

Notes:

To begin again is to let go of the belief that we can change what has already happened. To be willing to begin again this morning is to accept the harsh truth of our intentions and to do our best to stop berating ourselves endlessly. To begin again, takes kindness.

    Love your posting! Placing me in a very hopeful state of being!

  2. Great way to start the day. I also see “letting go” as trying our best to not regret – live in a way that doesn’t foster regrets, or live from this moment in a way that will not foster anymore regrets. Thanks for the post!

  3. “To begin again, takes kindness.”

    Amen!

    Beginning again is very hard. I appreciate this post as I had a couple of panic attacks over the weekend of things in my past that I can’t change. It’s time to begin again and let that go.

    Very great post. I have used this practice, too in my dealing with difficult family members and in my work and therapy. We often get caught up in the mess, rush and the past. This ideal of newness and kindness is important to me, too. Letting go is not always easy… For me it comes from the inspiration in this verse: http://www.biblegateway.com/quicksearch/?quicksearch=new+creation&qs_version=NIV

      Thank you! πŸ™‚
      Some days I simply forget to add the proverbial like button. Other days its a test to see if anyone is reading … Yesterday was a classic blonde hair moment of forgetting. πŸ˜‰
      Be inspired today and please take care!
