3 Tips For Letting Go

3 Tips for Letting Go Pinterest

“What do sad people have in common?

It seems they have all built a shrine to the past

And often go there and do a strange wail and worship.

What is the beginning of happiness?

It is to stop

Being so religious

Like that.”

— Hafiz

This is one of my favourite poems, because it truly paints a picture of the sadness that is created by holding on to past, painful moments.

Letting go can be super hard. I’m not great at it, but I’m learning to be better.

In today’s video I share 3 tips that I’m working on when it comes to letting go of things.

Did you catch the quote at the end? I hope so because it’s super powerful!

If not, here it is again:

“Your head’s like mine, like all our heads; big enough to contain every god and devil there ever was. Big enough to hold the weight of oceans and the turning stars. Whole universes fit in there! But what do we choose to keep in this miraculous cabinet? Little broken things, sad trinkets that we play with over and over. The world turns our key and we play the same little tune again and again and we think that tune is all we are.”

– Grant Morrison

We can all pick a different tune to live our lives by. Isn’t that awesome! That at any point we can change the tune we’ve been holding on to and create a new one. Knowing this makes me really happy and hopeful.

  1. “We can pick a different tune to live our lives by.”

    This statement is more powerful than Grant Morrison’s quote, Christel. What happens to us may not be in our power completely, but what we do after that definitely is. All we need to do is learn the tunes that people whom we want to emulate are playing, rather than being stuck with the same conventional ones that let us go nowhere.

  2. Thanks Vishal! Absolutely. We often have little control, only in how we react to things. Great advice to learn the tunes of others we admire. It’s amazing how we can do the same thing over and over but expect things to change. We have to change them, or change the way we look at them. Thanks for your comment!
