Let it go....Be free!

So true! I believe that carrying around guilt, sadness, resentment, bitterness, jealous, grief, fear…and a plethora of other negative emotions was at the root of my obesity and compulsive/emotional eating. The “heaviness” of the emotional pain that we insist on hanging on to is so easily manifested into the “heaviness” of our bodies.  As difficult as it is; we simply must “let it go.”  I know, it’s much easier said than done, but it is so necessary for our emotional, spiritual, mental, and physical well-being. Once we forgive, forget, and move on….we will know freedom that we never imagined, and it’s almost a guarantee that our bodies will reflect that freedom and it will be much easier to shed the “protective layer” of weight that we sometimes use to insulate our heart and feelings.  It’s a daily choice….wallow in negativity and emotional “stuff” or let it go…..and strive to not pick it back up again!

Let’s all decide today to “lighten up” our minds, spirits, and hearts… that we can “lighten” up our bodies too!  I hope everyone has a great day today!
