What Happens When I Let Go

"when I let go of expecations of where I should be, sometimes I'm delighted to find myself where I am."

We put so much pressure on ourselves to be in the right place at the right time. To be exactly where we think we should be, right now. Whether it’s a physical place or a place in our recovery, we are full of “shoulds.” I’m working on letting go of my expectations of where I “should be,” physically, mentally and emotionally. Don’t get me wrong, not all moments are delightful. Many are a real struggle. And I have memories of moments I don’t care to relive, nor would I wish them on anyone. But sometimes, when I let go, I come to an awareness in the present moment that even though it’s not perfect, I’m perfectly content. And those moments are the moments I live for.

Wishing you well,

Jenna ❄️🌟😊

P.S. This is my first post in a couple weeks. Between work and the holidays, things have been really busy. I’ve definitely missed writing and connecting with everyone. I’m making an effort to clear space in my schedule to keep up with the writing and blogging 🌟💙

    • Hi there, first of all sorry for the late response, holidays and all…I’ve been working on being in the moment for years. It’s a worthwhile pursuit but my mind sure likes to get in the way. But the more I let go the more it works. How has it been working in your life? Do you find yourself feeling liberated at times? Thank you for taking the time to comment.

      • It can be hard being in the moment when I was raised as a ‘planner’ but I am learning to accept things and take every opportunity as they come and trusting God that He is in control of everything. It can be scary but yes, it does feel liberating knowing you are led to some place where you will eventually find your purpose. 🙂

  1. Beautiful and so agree with your awesome true words wholeheartedly. Should must be removed from our thoughts and needs to be replaced by Must cause that is a positive affirmation. Yes we all go through too much of downs in life but have to let go and start moving with His help and hand and move towards him upwards and then it is a joy. Great inspiring post.

    • Hi Bradley, sorry for the belated response, it’s been busy with the holidays and all…Anyway, thank you for your encouraging words. For me learning to be in the moment was a matter of survival. My anxiety was driving me into hysterics, and once someone introduced me to mindfulness, I’ve slowly been getting better. But it’s definitely going to be a lifelong process, and it’s good to have that perspective, because then I don’t beat myself up when I’m not perfect at it. Thanks for taking the time to comment.
