I know you can't let it go!! Me neither...

It seems, for the last days I have been struggling with letting it go... I know is the right thing to do, but still I surrender to my imagination and the power of my illussions that things will be different this time.

I know, I know, I am lying to myself.

It won't be different, any different. It does not have a future and does not have started yet, this is actually a bullet in the middle of the forehead.

It is not about me not taking the fight, it is about me choosing my battles. This is definitely not one of my battles.

I just had a horrible night last night waiting at Jullitte style at my window for someone that never showed up. Typical, huh?

Tired of waiting I decided to move on with my life, this was a last chance... Then I just eat the chicken soup that have prepared, took Jocca for a walk and went bed after reading a couple of chapters on my current book.

At 7 am, when i woke up, things seemed to be in the same place. Sad!

To my suprise, I arrive today to the office, open my mail and get the Stuart's weekly Madness newsletter... So I decide to take a look, and there it was...

Life is wise and full of little details, signs that tell us we have made the right choice or that we have to make one!

Enjoy Stuart Madness and visit his page here. Higly recomended if you like to hear a cool guy speaking out what you already know but need to be remembered of.

Hey there everyone,

Stuart here with another addition of The Madness of My Mind. I hope you like this week's entry and that you take a moment to pass it along to someone else. As you know, I write these newsletters with the intention of having a positive impact on the lives of others. So, please pass it on to someone that would appreciate a break intheir day.

Ok, so here we go. This week I want you to participate with theThe Madness of My
Mind. I need you to physically do something forme to get the full point of what I'm about to say.

Here are the instructions.

I want you to take a big deep breathand then hold it in for as long as you can, and then when you can'thold it in any longer, let the air out slowly. It is a very simple exercise and if you do it, you will be ready for the next stage of the newsletter.

Ready? Here we go on the count of three. Remember to hold it infor as long as you can. Aim for at least 30 to 60 seconds. Reallypush yourself. On the count of three take a big breath in 1-2-3!
Hold it!

Hold it!

Keep Going!

Hold it for as long as you can. Keep going. You can do it.

Ok, when you have held it in as long as you can, let it out slowly before reading any further...

What felt better? Holding the breath in or letting the air out? The answer is obvious isn't it? Didn't it feel great to let the breath out after holding it in for so long? And if this is true,then shouldn't it be true for all other aspects of our lives? Wouldn't it feel good to let go of other things just the way that we let go of our breath just now?

How would it feel if we let go of...
That grudge we have been holding onto.

That insecurity we all feel about something.

That anger we hold toward a particular family member.

That shame we feel over something we did in the past.

That worry we hold over the future.

That pain over the person that left us.

That concern we have about what we should do with our lives.

That argument we had with a co-worker.

That sadness we sometimes feel about not being in a relationship.

That conversation we have in our heads about whether we've made the right choices.

The memories we all have of things we wish we did differently.

What if we let go of these things? Would it mean that we don't care anymore? Would it mean that we aren't taking responsibility for our lives? Would it mean that we have given up? Absolutelynot!

It would mean that we no longer like the feeling of holding our breath anymore. It would mean that we no longer see the point of trying to change something that we can't change. It would mean that we have decided to learn the lessons of the past with the intention of controlling our future.

Life is short and we all get to choose how we want to live it. We can wake up every
day and hold our breath or we can let it go.
If there is anything I know it's that you can not hold your breathforever. If you try, it might kill ya!

Much love,

Thanks Stuart for this...
Time to let go, time to say good bye, time to close the door behind.
A whole new world is waiting for me.
