Letting go is something I am working on. Letting go of control. Letting go of worry, fear and obsession. Letting go of all the thoughts that bog me down and instead, just Trust and Accept (my word for 2021). Accept that things will work out.
Letting go and accepting doesn’t mean giving up and not putting the work in, it means doing what needs to get done and then letting things land where they may.
Even if the groundhog saw his shadow and our winter will last another six weeks, even if feels we are in an endless loop, spring WILL eventually arrive. Instead of worrying about the future or dwelling on regrets of the past, each day, each moment is an opportunity to focus on what we have right now.
*Did you know Groundhogs (Marmota monax) are a type of rodent known as a marmot, and marmots are closely related to squirrels. More on that here.
