Release is essential to growth, healing, and making the impossible happen. Letting go, cutting ties, and clearing space.
Because often, we can’t step into a new way of being until we’ve fully severed all connections to what came before. Who we were, how we showed up, what we did, who surrounded us, and what we believed.
It’s terrifying and uncomfortable, it can feel isolating and lonely for long periods, and it’s full of unknowns and uncertainty.
And goodness gracious is it hard! Because we’re standing in the middle of our lives—smack in the center of relationships, work, obligations, and communities—trying desperately to start showing up differently and creating new outcomes for ourselves.
It’s hard to step into what’s next when you’re so immersed and enmeshed in what’s been. It’s hard to alter your context and shift into a new paradigm when everything old is still in motion, demanding your attention, and always asking for your time and energy.
So sometimes, you have to cut the cords. As many as possible so you can create the space for what’s next to emerge. So you have room to step into new ways of being. So you’re able to get clarity about what’s next, without being influenced by what was.
It’s not easy, and it’s not always possible to cut every tie. And when it’s not, we have to be even more vigilant about staying rooted in what we want and who we want to become. We have to hold that vision close to our hearts while committing to continuously act in alignment with the possibility we want—regardless of the circumstances around us. We have to consciously claw our way out of the deeply worn grooves of what we no longer want and onto a new path altogether.
I’m working on a new process and methodology for what it takes to make the impossible happen, and I can’t wait to share it with you all. It’s not easy work, but it’s always accessible to us. Always, always.
