I let out a big sigh the other day and my sister-in-law commented, “oh you just let go of something you were holding onto.” I paused and realized, she was right. I had been sitting in blame for some silly little thing that occurred. Just before the audible release, I had made a decision to let it go. And in that sigh, I released it all.

And it felt so good to let it all just wash away in a single exhale.

Are you holding onto any grudges? Resentments? Whether they’re from yesterday or 10 years ago, can I recommend to you that you find a way to let it go? Start with the sigh and take it from there. To help you let go, start with an appreciation. For the person or the place or the event. In the appreciation you will find the shift. Let it go. You will be glad you did.
