As we all know at some point in our lives we start to feel boxed in by our life circumstances. When that occurs, our choices seem limited by our beliefs around what is possible in our life. And if we are really honest with ourselves we know that our beliefs are just beliefs and not truth. It’s difficult for many of us to accept this fact, but when you do it will free you up. Just let it go.
These limiting beliefs are based upon your interpretation of your personal history. The meaning you have given to these events including labels or things people have said about you, limit your ability to freely make choices today.
Liberating yourself up from these past beliefs is the first step in experiencing more personal freedom in your life. Look back at your life and realize that every event and experience that has occurred so far has made you who you are today. Take a look at some of your past experiences.
Now is the time to give these past experiences new meaning?
I know you can, but even if you can’t, what about being open to the possibility that because of these events you are better for it. Stop hanging on and let them go. Let go of your attachments and your identification with what has happened. Be willing to give them new meaning. As you reframe your past, you pave the way for a more exciting future. Sometimes forgiving yourself or someone else is also liberating. Stop thinking about what you should have done. You didn’t do it, and anyway, what you did was perfect for where you were at that time in your life. You’ve learned from it. Now you’re ready to create the next adventure in your life. I’m not saying to ignore it, but at some point just let it go.
Try it on and see how it fits. The experts say it takes 30 days to instill a new habit….Let’s start with today and tomorrow and go from there, so that each day is just about today.
