Resistance requires effort. Letting go requires faith. The season continues to challenge us. We are challenged at home and at work. We are challenged by our co-workers, our family members and at times, we are even challenged by our own thoughts. When we are challenged we have a natural inclination to either resist or retaliate. This past week gave me the opportunity to explore another option, “let it go.” I was pleasantly surprised at the outcome. When I made the professional decision to comply, I was able to let go of the stress and anxiety that I had previously experienced when I resisted. When I decided that it was more important to be pampered than to be right, I had a wonderful weekend. When I let go of the negative thoughts and focused on that which is pure, lovely, and of good report, I was able to experience a peaceful nights rest. Just let it go. Know that love will always prevail, good will triumph over evil, and the righteous will never be forsaken. There may come a time when you must respond to the challenge. Maturity lies in being able to determine whether or not that time is now. Today, exhale…and let it go.
