Set It Free…and it will come back to you transformed.
Set your emotions and control free and you live more freely? Yes exactly. I’m working on this.
A willingness to lose a certain sense of control is needed to set anything free. Within freedom there really can be no control. Controlling things, however, keeps me in my confort zone, or at least I like to think so.
Are you willing to let go of control? I agree, it is stepping out of the comfort zone. Jumping from the cliff, and possbily landing hard!
Let today be the day. Set it free.
Set free your FEAR. Need to control. Doubt. Trust. Vulnerability. Love.
When you set it free, it will come back to you….transformed.
If I ignore these emotions I feel or try to fight them it is like they are caged within me, like a butterfly in a bottle. They flutter around. I can feel them affecting me, affecting my life, and yet nothing changes.
When I accept my emotions ( fear, doubt, trust, vulnerability, love) I litterly set them free and they can come back to me changed, they are free to grow into something new. I am too. So are you.
Doing so my life begins to change.
Letting go of my need to control is such a part of the process.
Seeing through the illusion that my need to control does not bring me more joy or love, but rather it cages me is an important awareness. It’s a step toward change and toward freedom.
Ingrained within me however, is a certain need to control, I am aware of this. When even the thought of letting go of control surfaces, I do feel that FEAR. So I keep reminding myself… that each time that I simply surrender my control anyway…I do feel that breath of freedom.
It is as if I have been held under the water and suddenly I am rising to the top again.
I like to think of my emotions and my need to control like butterflies. Sometimes they may seem more like caterpillars, and I can’t see the true beauty in them. It is when I set them free to fly, that I see their brilliance and beauty.
It has truly helped me to let go of needing to control what others think of me or what they think about the emotions I show. It’s freeing not to worry if people agree, disagree, judge,feel love, feel hate, or if they smile with or at me.
I love myself enough to know I am enough, regardless. I remind myself to keep on surrendering.
I haven’t thrown those oars into the water completely, but I am sure having a hell of a good time raising my arms in the air and going where that river flows…
