Let Go of What Doesn’t Serve You

It’s time to let go of what doesn’t serve you. Life is short, and your purpose is grand.

You have only so much time, so much attention. Consider the value of how you use these.

Are you investing your time and attention? Or are you simply spending them in useless or even damaging places?

Rid your life of toxic people. They’re energy vampires and feed off the stability you’ve worked so hard to create. Surround yourself instead with those who share your values and support your vision.

Give freely to those with the help you can offer. Be generous and willing, but keep pace that your efforts don’t outshine their own. We can’t fix people or want their well-being than they do.

Your home is a sanctuary of safety and joy. Donate the clutter that steals your peace, as all that we own, also owns us. Our possessions chatter constantly: “Use me. Clean me. Fix me. Dust me. Sort me. Store me.” Keep what you need and love, and gift the rest to a friend or thrift store.

Stop filling your calendar with breathless busy-ness that leaves you exhausted and accomplishes nothing. Experience peace of having spaces to breathe.

Quiet the chaos of mind-numbing media. Turn off the television. Unplug your iPad. Leave your phone on the charger and walk away.

Let go of the filler you trade for real life.

Let go and live on purpose,
