Everything has a life span and that depends on its purpose. A loaf of bread has the purpose of nourishment, but it’s not intended to nor expected to be eternally in your life. But we do expect some things to be. Once we emotional invest ourselves in a relationship of any description whether marriage, job, friendship or project.
This emotional attachment makes it difficult to understand that when a thing has served its purpose, it will go away. It may break or simply die off. Perhaps it will fall apart and the pieces and fragments remaining make it impossible to put things back together. You may struggle with this, trying to understand why things ended the way they did. You may even blame yourself. You may have regrets. You may be hurt and blame others and hold resentments about what happened.
Holding onto something that has gone and is over only continues to hurt you in the present moment. The energy you use both emotionally and mentally, only continues to refuel the pain from the past. Holding on to your past means you do not move forward in your life. Until you surrender your attachment to people, things, situations or events from your past you struggle to hold onto you fail to recognize the importance of their purpose being served. This is the same as trying to drive your car towards a place of happiness, peace and joy, while your head is bent back over your shoulder fixed on what’s behind you.
Until now, you may have been holding onto feelings, thoughts or someone not realizing their purpose has been served in your life. So for today, just let go and surrender to this moment and be open to what you find right now that brings you peace, happiness and joy. You will be open to see the end is only a new beginning if you allow it.
In this moment, I am devoted to releasing everything and everyone which do not serve a divine purpose in my life.
