Believe it or not, you can’t have it all.
I mean, you have to let go of somethings in order to get better things. If you watch Hoarders, you will know…you cannot have a good life hoarding.
I know this might be completely stupid, but I did not know that bleach obviously bleaches and dyes all your clothes. Yesterday, I ran out of detergent and decided to use the last of my bleach for my clothes. Yes, I know, I went to Fashion School, but we never used bleach and on the bleach bottle, it said I could use it to wash clothes…..I ended up masacre-ing ALL MY CLOTHES. It was so hard breaking. Some came out good, but some came out horrid.
I think it was God telling me to let go. Let go of my old clothes, of my stubbornness, of my old ways of thinking.
You see, without letting go, we do not open our hands to the good things that are coming NEXT.
We clench onto what we already have, already think about life.
Fortunately, as an ENTREPRENEUR, you are a LEARNER…which means, you MUST constantly ADAPT, ADJUST, LISTEN. This is a season of listening well my friends.
Any great entrepreneur MUST listen and not simply drone and WALK on to the beat of society. Yesterday, I had several mishaps. Spilled wine on my couch, massacred my clothes, did not win my 3 parking tickets (PARKING TICKETS ARE THE WORSE!), and more. I was pretty miserable, but….today….I REFUSED To let it get to me.
It is because, I know there is a bigger picture.
Your life might not be the most pleasant right now. Perhaps you are going through crisis, relational, financial, emotional….career crisis. But there is hope, this hope relies on YOUR ability and CHOICE to FOCUS on what you’re grateful for….and the CHOICE to be PRESENT in each and every day.
I think another thing I was reminded of is that MATERIAL WEALTH can be burned away, bleached away, destroyed- but integrity, character and spiritual wealth is eternal.
Sometimes we try to SAVE, hoping it will protect us from tragedy….but we end up paying more for saving the crappy stuff we already have. So give it up, and let the new thing come.
Material Hoarding – Hoarding material things
Emotional Hoarding– Not forgiving, not letting go of the past
Mindset Hoarding– Not letting go of OLD mindsets, patterns or perspectives in life
…..The list goes on, but TODAY WRITE DOWN 1 THING YOU HAVE NOT LET GO OF and you know will stop you from moving forward. Then COMMIT to LET IT GO!
