    There’s a nice quote from the song ”Let it Go” by James Bay:

    ”So come on, let it go
    Just let it be
    Why don’t you be you
    And I’ll be me”

    I am wondering what others think, feel, their experience(s), etc. around the similarities and differences of Letting Go & Letting Be

    Jackie, when I reflect on letting go and letting be I think about how I used to try and control the outcome of certain events in my life. I had the idea that I needed everything to be perfect before I could do anything which really kept me from getting too much done. Letting go of perfectionism and just accepting things as they are is allowing me to be more present and enjoy what is.

    Wow Lissa, what a beautiful perspective. Thank you so much for taking the time to reply. I totally agree about the way the “need” for control takes over and can put us in a place where it’s hard and/scary to let go. And that being aware and accepting will aid in the release of that. Much Love Friend!

    I’m just beginning to let go a bit with my kids… as NOT being bossy and hearing them out and BOY am I learning SO MUCH about myself from THEM! It isn’t/wasn’t easy but until we don’t let go and let them be, we hold them back from being true to themselves and discovering themselves! It took us TOO LONG to get here and I’d love for them to do it sooner than later.

    Wow @fatima, that’s great. I am so happy to hear that. I can imagine that would open up a door of opportunities to get to know each other in new and exciting ways. I may try this as well. Thank you 🙂 <3
