tuesday Thoughts And Do This Before You Let Go
Updated: Nov 10, 2021
Would you pick up a leaf from this pile? No? Why not?
They are not bight red or yellow. They are not frame worthy....because they are done. Their beauty is gone. Their color is fading. Their elasticity is gone. Their youth is gone. Sound like me? :) Or my 52 year old skin? Just kidding.
Well, back to the topic. Sometimes I make myself laugh.
I learned the most beautiful fact today, and you will have you watch a short video to understand.
Please watch. It’s like 2 minutes short.
Ok. Bored? Fascinated?
We are all familiar with the tree leaves drying up and falling off. But would the tree really give away so many nutrients that it worked so hard to produce? No. Of course not.
Before the leaf falls off, the branch literally draws all of the nutrients (I don't remember the names) out of the leaf.
It takes them out and stores them to produce new growth in the spring. It doesn't just let that old leaf go without taking ALL of the good stuff first.
Are you following me? Can we please learn from nature? It has so much wisdom.
We all know that we are carrying stuff with us that is too heavy. Things from the past that influenced us.
Something a boss said. A disagreement or estrangement with a child. A fight with a spouse. A criticism from a friend. A degrading remark from a teacher. A failed business or relationship. Being rejected by a sports team or book editor or agent. Our weight gain. Our food or alcohol addiction. Our self sabotage. And the list goes on.
We know it's better to let go. But before you do that, do this ONE thing.
That one thing is explained in the above video.
Extract all the good before you cap it off and let it go.
1) Your boss said something that really hurt you.
Before you let it go, think, "I gave my best and I controlled my emotions when he/she confronted me. I handled that well."
2) Your business failed.
Before you let go of the shame, think, “I went out there and at least I tried. I showed courage, and I learned so much from being in that business. I can bring those lessons into my new business and do better."
3) You had a disagreement with a child.
Before you let it go think, “I showed up and tried. I learned what not to do in this situation and will be intentional in showing more acceptance and love next time."
You get the idea.
Extract all the good stuff first. You will need that to supply growth in the new season
