    Let go, Let God


    It has been a while since I have been able to post and it has been bothering me. I remember it every time that I talk to one of my clients about letting something go. If you can’t control something, change it, or like me do it, try to let it go. Usually it is easier said than done but as most of the time it is progress rather that perfection what I preach and practice. Most people ask me, what do you mean by “letting go”? so I thought I would collect some quotes that explain the concept in a few words. I like some of them more than others but I’d let you pick your own. Ah…and if you want to go a step further, pick one of these that applies to you and work on it this week. I really believe that when we are able to let go things start happening in our lives.


    To “let go” doesn’t mean stop caring. It means I can’t do it for someone else or I can’t change how things are.

    To “let go” is not to cut myself off; it’s the realization that I can’t control another.

    To “let go” is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences.

    To “let go” is to not try to change or blame another; it is to make the most of myself.

    To “let go” is not to care, for but to care about.

    To “let go” is not to fix, but to be supportive. It is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.

    To “let go” is not to be in the middle, arranging all the outcomes, but to allow others to affect their destinies.

    To “let go” is not to be protective; it is to permit another to face reality and live their own experiences.

    To “let go” is not to deny but to accept. It is not to nag, scold, or argue with, but instead to search out my own shortcomings and correct them.

    To “let go” is not to criticize and regulate anybody, but to try and become what I dream I can be.

    To “let go” is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.

    To “let go” is to fear less and love more without the harm to yourself.


    Each day is a new beginning by Hazelden.

    Just for today, let it go.
