What would happen if you let go?

By: Natasha Uspensky, CHHC

What would happen if you let go of it?  Of the need to be perfect.  Of the fear of standing out. Of the plan. Of the self-criticism.  Of that crappy relationship or unfulfilling job.

A lot of my clients and readers who struggle with weight or their health are holding on to negative thought patterns, past experiences, or current habits that are holding them back.

When we’re in a place of “holding on,” our bodies and minds get a clear signal that we’re not safe. It’s not safe to lose the weight.  It’s not safe to get out of emergency mode and feel calm.  It’s not safe to put yourself out there.  It’s not safe to be happy.

But ask yourself this:  What would really happen if you let go? If you stopped worrying about being “good” all the time, and savored a delectable pastry from that lovely little French bakery you pass on your way home?  If you took a sick day and went to the spa, or enjoyed a little spa day at home?  If you didn’t answer your emails right when they came in, and committed to some tech-free time?  If you asked out that cutie in accounting?  If you booked that trip to Paris? If you signed up for that writing workshop or art class?

What would happen?  Would your world fall apart?  Would you instantly gain 10 pounds?  Would you get fired from your job?  No, no, and no.

The only thing that would happen is you feeling more free, more alive, more YOU.

Being “good” doesn’t make us feel more alive, but letting go every now and then totally does. {Tweet it!}
