Out With the Old, In With the New!

Well, it’s time to LET GO.  It’s time to step out and into a whole new world full of excitement and joy! It’s time to declare boldly, “I, AM LETTING GO!” With every fiber in your body, say it and  mean it.  DECLARE, that you are moving forward and will begin to experience the joy you once felt. Start believing in your dreams again,  full of hope that tomorrow starts a new day.  Full of faith that God will answer your prayers and fulfill your needs.  Filled with the strongest belief that it will be done.

Now that you have declared you are letting go, DECLARE , that you are saying goodbye to the old you and hello to the new you.

“Remember not the former things of old. Behold I am doing new things; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make away in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” - Isaiah 43:18-19
“Remember not the former things of old. Behold I am doing new things; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make away in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.”

Letting go and saying goodbye are not easy.  It is difficult to walk away from your comfort zone where you are content and feel safe in your familiar zone.  Even when the source of comfort no longer provides happiness, we may find ourselves unwilling to let go. Maybe out deeply rooted fears that tell us that change is too uncomfortable, too unpredictable or more than we can handle. Whatever the reason, fear holds us back.  Sometimes, the fear is not real but has become our reality because we have convinced ourselves that it is bad and will only get worse. But change is real, it’s constantly upon us.  Without change in our lives, we fail to grow to our fullest potential. The question is not will it happen, its when and what will we do about it?  Will we embrace it or ignore it?

For just a moment, imagine the life you want? Imagine yourself experiencing new adventures, feeling comfortable and excited about what the new adventure offers you. Maybe it’s a new job, starting a new career, a new relationship, traveling, or where ever your dream takes you, just imagine you are there in a place,  living fearlessly and being the courageous person that you desire to be.

What a sight to behold? Well, if you can imagine it, you can have it. It’s yours for the asking. Another step in moving past your fears and moving forward is to imagine it is possible. Once you have a clear vision you can begin to take small steps each day to get closer to what you want.  Yes, it will take time and work on your part, but won’t it be worth it, to actually live the life you just imagined? What will it take?  You have already taken some critical first steps to begin to change your mindset.

Step 1: Declared what you want.

Step 2: Imagined the possibility.

Step 3: Begin the process of letting go of those old limiting, negative beliefs. Just let go and declare that they will not hold your future hostage.

Step 4: Believe in the impossible.  It’s only impossible because you have yet to go for it to make it possible.

Step 5: Give yourself permission to move forward. Declare with boldness,  courage, and confidence:  “Hello, It’s me! Yes, I am letting go, saying goodbye and I am going forward.  I am no longer living in the past and I refuse to let my past define my future. “

Let your declaration become your truth, your compass for your vision. I did just that. I declared my new future and have been moving forward ever since.  It was the best decision I made. I had no idea where the road would lead me or how I would get from there to here, but I trusted God, believed in myself, leaned on my faith and in the process gained clarity of my purpose. I believe you can do it too. Let go and open your mind to new possibilities. Go ahead and grab the future that awaits you!
