OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
Recently, I came across an intriguing & famous Zen proverb "Let Go or Be Dragged".
As you might have guessed, it means letting go of things or people who you feel are energy-draining or detrimental to you. Otherwise, you may be dragged down by the negativity in your life as a repercussion.
You might have a friend, a situation, a substance, a belief, or something else that is pulling on you, knowingly or unknowingly. That something should be figured out soon because its aftermath could be very ugly & have a huge impact on your life.
"With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts." ~ Eleanor Roosevelt
A new day is a day full of new opportunities. You get a chance every day to leave behind your liabilities and baggage & embrace the wonderful and exciting things the world has to offer. You can rise, let go of all your doubts, fear and procrastination, & live to the fullest of your potential.
If you have read the epic poem Paradise Lost by John Milton, there is one particularly captivating sentence "Awake, arise, or be forever fallen". Although the sentence has a different meaning concerning the text, I initially interpreted it the same way I interpreted Eleanor Roosevelt's above-mentioned quote, & my research proved me right!
To summarise, you must stand strong in front of your problems, have faith in yourself, & you will emerge victorious!
There are endless quotes and thoughts in this world concerning letting go of the past and moving on or embracing change in your life. But the ones that resonate with me the most are mentioned in this account. This is what I feel about the transient nature of our lives and letting go, be it of people, thoughts, things, or situations. I would love to know your thoughts concerning this topic.
