I realize there’s something incredibly honest about
trees in winter,
how they’re experts at letting things go.
Affirmation: I am relinquishing control over the uncontrollable.
When I am in one of life’s lowest valleys, I am comforted by positive thoughts. These thoughts bring such comfort to me that I can often smile in the midst of shadows.
I cannot control of everything, because there are many, many things in this world that are well beyond my control. And that is alright. I am responsible for those things that I am able to manage, but I am also quick to let go of the things that I cannot influence. In order to save myself a great deal of anxiety, I do not hold on to things that I cannot control.
I give my best to those things that I can control. I set fair expectations for myself. I am diligent. I am hardworking, yet I have no problem admitting my limitations.
When I identify something in my life that is uncontrollable, I let go of it quickly. I do not waste my time trying to handle things that are impossibly out of my reach. I am happy to relinquish control because my ego and my pride are in check.
When I have to acknowledge my lack of control, I do not feel guilt. By letting go of control, I make room for miracles.
In situations where I am unsure of what to do, I seek help and guidance. If I see that there is nothing else that I can do, I pray, take a deep breath, and then I simply let go.
I relinquish control of all situations to a Higher Power. Where my strength ends, there is a greater strength that will continue to carry me forward. When my abilities run thin, therein is the power of miracles.
Today, I am relinquishing control over the uncontrollable.
Homework/ Self-Reflective Questions/ Journal Prompts:
1. What are some things that I need to give up?
2. How can I free myself from undue pressures and anxieties?
3. In what way have I recently burdened myself with something that I could not control? How should I handle this going forward?
Have an awesome week!
