letting go Quotes

Make New Year's goals. Dig within, and discover what you would like to have happen in your life this year. This helps you do your part. It is an affirmation that you're interested in fully living life in the year to come. Goals give us direction. They put a powerful force into play on a universal, conscious, and subconscious level. Goals give our life direction.What would you like to have happen in your life this year? What would you like to do, to accomplish? What good would you like to attract into your life? What particular areas of growth would you like to have happen to you? What blocks, or character defects, would you like to have removed?What would you like to attain? Little things and big things? Where would you like to go? What would you like to have happen in friendship and love? What would you like to have happen in your family life?What problems would you like to see solved? What decisions would you like to make? What would you like to happen in your career?Write it down. Take a piece of paper, a few hours of your time, and write it all down - as an affirmation of you, your life, and your ability to choose. Then let it go. The new year stands before us, like a chapter in a book, waiting to be written. We can help write that story by setting goals.

- Melody Beattie, The Language of Letting Go: Daily Meditations on Codependency

Letting go is not getting rid of. Letting go is letting be.

- Sally Brampton, Shoot the Damn Dog: A Memoir of Depression

We can let go of the person or love or friendship without letting go of the lesson.

- Mandy Hale, The Single Woman: Life, Love, and a Dash of Sass

You spend years swaying between letting go and holding on, only to finally realise that letting go off - someone you truly loved is never about forgetting them completely or achieving indifference. Their mention will still trigger a momentary heaviness, their sadness will still make you uneasy, their happiness will still make you happy. You can't break those strings, they just loosen up enough, not to keep you tied. You never let go off them, you just let go the Hope of togetherness.

- Drishti Bablani, Uns

you've got to know when to let a woman go if you want to keep her,and if you don't want to keep her you let her go anyhow so it's always a process of letting go, one way or the other.

- Charles Bukowski, The Roominghouse Madrigals: Early Selected Poems, 1946-1966

She's finding it hard to cope - her hopes have been dashed, the future she dreamed about has gone and she's scared about that. There's nothing in its place. She wants you back. She doesn't want to let go of everything it meant to her. Because the world seems horribly big and empty. Because the future is a very frightening concept when you'd previously planned on sharing it with someone. Because she's a girl, she's a romantic and she fears if she lets  go of her dream, she'll live a nightmare. Because she has a hope and she fears if she lets her hope go, who will she be?The effort, the pain of clinging on is preferable to the wide-open fear of letting go.

- Freya North, Chances

Letting go is never easy. There is no short-cut or trick to it. You must be committed enough to your future to let go of your past. It's not easy and it's likely to hurt, but it is for the best.

- Steve Maraboli

how can he love me then not? He went,he ran. And I cannot bring him back. Yet I left the door metaphorically wide open, hoping he'd come back and bang on it proclaiming, "I want to be here with you. Always." Soon I'm going to have to shutit. For my safety and my sanity. Let go. I don't want to. Won't letting go be just that - letting go? Giving up? Admitting failure? Admitting that it is really, truly over?

- Freya North, Cat

I have eyes, and you can't keep yours off me." Simon, Finally Letting Go

- C.J. Lynne, Finally Letting Go

It is a state of peace to be able to accept things as they are. This is to be at home in our own lives. We see that this universe is much too big to hold on to, but it is the perfect size for letting go. Our hearts and minds become that big, and we can actually let go. This is the gift of equanimity.

- Sharon Salzberg, Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness

You focus on telling stories,
we do everything else.
