Letting go

This year I learnt about letting go.

Letting go of what I can't control. {Surrendering}. I learnt to just be. {More often}.

It was in my effort to make our house sell {so we could move on and ahead} that I almost created one of my
greatest fears.

Change came when I surrendered {and fully let go}.

And now as I look back at a bigger than big
year of changes, I'm excited to be on the eve of a new year.

And to be where at the beginning of last year I remember hoping to be.

But, as life likes to do, it threw me the perfect emotional storm these past few days. A storm that could only be quelled by letting go of what I can't control.

So I'm grateful for this test, and the opportunity to apply this lesson.

It reminded me I'm stronger than I think, and how good it feels to let go.

It reminded me I am supported {by so many, and in so many ways}.

And that now is the perfect time to let go of the old {patterns, emotions and stuff too} and allow extra space for wonder, more love, change and new.

Wishing you the happiest new year!

  2. Happy New Year to you Elisa, may 2013 bring many wonderful things to you and your family. I have thoroughly enjoyed discovering a little about your world this year xo

  3. I'm still learning the art of letting go. Definitely one of my 2013 plans to work on. Pleased to have discovered your words this year and looking forward to reading more. Happy New Year!

  4. I learnt more than a lesson or two this year from letting go too Elisa, it's freeing isn't it.
    Here's to 2013 bringing you all your heart desires. May it be a blessed year for you and yours.
    Happy New Year.

  5. I know I have a lot of letting go to do. I sometimes find it difficult to work within my circle of control, and attempt to go beyond that and change things which I simply can't- and shouldn't. Something to think about for the new year...

  6. Elisa, letting go can be so scary but so satisfying at the same time. I hope 2013 sees all your hopes and wishes become a reality x

  7. Wise words. Letting go is so very very hard. I struggle with that often. I much prefer having control over everything, but life doesn't work like that. It is so freeing to "let go and let live".

  8. I love how your pictures tell a story. Lovely pictures and words, thanks for sharing with us.
