In order for us to grow, we need to leave some things behind to make room for what’s new. Just as a young child outgrows his shoes every few months, always needing a new pair – we outgrow habits, emotions, friendships, relationships…even jobs or dreams. You’ll always have memories of these things, but as humans we have a tendency to cling so tight, not wanting to let go. We hold on to them which leaves no room for the new that’s ready and waiting to enter our lives. Spend a moment today to review something you’re clinging to. Something that may not be serving you anymore. Something you’ve outgrown. Sure, you may ‘miss’ it, just as we miss a childhood friendship or that cute pair of shoes that no longer fit our size 8 feet. But I promise what’s waiting for you is so much better. Today’s Daily Affirmation:

I will release the old, as it no longer serves me and I will welcome the new with excitement.
