Sometimes the only way we can get to the heart of what truly matters to us is by embracing the humility required in choosing which things we need to let go of.
Sometimes the only way we can win in our own fight is by actually deciding where we are willing to lose on.
I find that the answering that has helped me streamline the decisions I need to make in order to guide the momentum that’s already in my life. It’s not an easy one to answer, it can reveal many painful truths – but it’s nonetheless, empowering to shed light on aspects of ourselves we were previously not aware of/have chosen to look away from.
So how am I willing to lose this year? Actually, to my surprise this one is pretty easy to answer:
I am willing to lose in each and everything that wants to take away my capacity to love and care for myself.
If something is forcing me to do things that are against my concept of self-love, I have to walk away from it. If something is forcing me to neglect my own needs and desires, it has to go out the door. If something wants to take so much more from me than I am willing to give, I have to push back. Nothing is worth exchanging my wholeness for.
How about you – how are you willing to lose this year?
