I learned to be a fighter.
It was a survival mechanism and it served me well when I was younger because it was all I had. It was the coping mechanism that kept me going; but as I got older, and living in survival was no longer the only option, I realized a few things…
This mentality caused me to fight everything! My life had become a struggle and I began to see that the more I fought — the more I was drawing to me to fight!
My vibration was in fight mode and since the Universe always gives us our energetic match, I was manifesting more opposition.
I finally got so fed up with this pattern of fighting everything that I decided something needed to change. So I took a step back and observed the situation.
From this expanded viewpoint I could see the tension my body had been holding my whole life. If was as if I had been holding my breath for years and I knew it was time to let it out.
And so I did something I had never done before, I decided to accept my current reality for what it was. I allowed myself to be where I was instead of fighting against it…I let go.
For years I had been so afraid of letting go because I thought that if I did, that would mean I was giving up and allowing things to remain the same.
What I realized is that letting go and giving up are NOT the same. Giving up is passive. I was letting go with intent! From this point of acceptance, I could actually change my situation. I didn’t have to fight it; instead, I could shift focus and create a new reality.
I shifted from resistance/opposition to creation/allowing, and an amazing thing happened! New avenues became visible, new doors that I didn’t see before began to open, and life became far more exciting.
So as it turns out, letting go was one of the best decisions I had ever made.
I recommend letting go of something small first, and then keep doing it! It may just be the best decision you ever make too.
