Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded that growth means letting things go.
As you grow, expand and move forward, it’s only natural that you will have to let things go.
Some things will go because you’ve outgrown them, and they’re no longer aligned with who you’re becoming.
Some things will have to go because they’re weighing you down and keeping you stuck, and that’s just becoming increasingly frustrating.
Other times things will go, just because it feels the right thing to do – it may not make logical sense, but you know to trust the feelings and insights you get.
And remember, just because it is the right thing to do, doesn’t mean it will be easy, or pain or resistance free.
Even when you know, without doubt that you need to let something go so that you can fully step into your true self, doesn’t mean that you can’t or won’t grieve what you’re letting go of.
Honour the loss, but don’t dwell in it.
Honour the loss and acknowledge your growth and who you’re becoming.
Pause, and take a breath. As you let go of what you need to.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to notice what’s holding you back from becoming who you want to be.
What’s weighing you down and preventing you from expanding in your life?
What do you need to let go of, spend less time doing, or less time in the company of?
Acknowledge that some people, places, thoughts, patterns and things we outgrow, that doesn’t make you a bad person, it just means that you’re honouring your growth.
Pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to grow into the person you are meant to be.
“I release myself from the things I’ve outgrown”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy feeling freer on Your SHEro’s Journey!
One of the hardest things I had to accept was that I’d outgrown was my marriage.
We’d been together for 10 years.
We’d got together in my early 20’s and it had been love, or probably lust, at first sight.
On the outside everything looked perfect. We had careers, a beautiful house, cars, holidays, a great social life etc etc.
But inside we were very different people to who we’d been when we first met, and we hadn’t been growing along the same path.
Our values and beliefs were different.
We now wanted very different things from our lives, and they weren’t going to be compatible.
The hardest part was that nothing was actually wrong – we weren’t fighting, being horrible to each other or being disrespectful to the relationship.
We were friends and still enjoyed each other’s company, we just no longer wanted the same things – I’m not sure we ever really did.
It was hard to justify, as giving up on a relationship, especially a marriage, and especially a marriage that didn’t appear to be broken in the traditional sense, appeared to be failing, that we should’ve just tried harder.
We were lucky in that we didn’t have any children together, so in some regards it was just us we had to think about.
And even though we both knew it was the right thing to do, it was still incredibly sad.
Yet, after the pain and the paperwork, we are both so much happier.
It was absolutely the right thing to let each other go.
I can’t even imagine what would’ve happened to us both is we hadn’t been strong enough to let go.
