What Are You Holding On To?

"When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” ~Lao Tzu

Some changes are very welcome. But many times, change, leading off into the unknown, can be a very difficult, even terrifying, thing. But we would do well to remember that change is not only an inevitable part of life, it is the only way we truly grow; by experience, by mistakes, by taking risks, by working through, by making difficult decisions. The process can be dreaded, or, if you can let go of what you really no longer need, you can make it into a wonderful, exciting and truly memorable time. As Lao Tsu reminds us, it is only when we choose to accept changes in ourselves and let go of our perceived realities, can we truly 'become' our best selves. So try to enjoy the ride. Though the road may be a bumpy one, make your arrival at your 'destination' all you hope for!
