Let it go

So many times we overeat....or drink.....or indulge in other unhealthy
behavior to cover up the pain that we are trying desperately to forget or heal.  Let it go, my friends....acknowledge that life is sometimes really hard; that bad things happen to god people; that things are not always fair; that we make mistakes and other people hurt us...acknowledge it...then surrender it to God....and then... LET IT GO.    

Oftentimes, the extra weight that we carry around is simply a physical manifestation of other things that weigh heavy on our hearts and minds, and when we find the courage to let go of the emotional pain of worry, grief, resentment, unworthiness, and shame, we find that the physical weight begins to disappear as well.

May today be a day when we decide to forgive just ONE person or to surrender just ONE thought that nags at us or to ignore just ONE comment that threatens to rob us of our peace and joy.
