What are you holding on to?
This was originally written 2 years ago and not posted until today, in concurrence with Aunty’s “Sharing” post.
During the 8th session with Dr. Hana Yin at Brain Fitness Hawaii (no longer in business), something popped into Aunty’s consciousness.
It started with a question: What are you holding on to?
For Aunty, it was anger and resentment, holding on to bad memories, recalling of upsetting words spoken, and ill feelings. This led to continuous anger and resentment, without end.
We have been told to count our blessings. To tell you the truth, that doesn’t work for Aunty, not when she is pissed off. Recalling good stuff was overcome with the recollection of the bad incidences – along with its bitter bile. Unwanted, but THERE. Like having your worst acquaintance strapped onto your back all day long. Yuck.
Aunty was holding on to some pretty junk stuff, and it was time to just let it go.
Some people take drugs, go to therapy, meditate, find a life coach. Doesn’t matter what you do, but the first step is to realize what you are holding on to. If it is crap, get rid of it.
Aunty is working on it. It is good to let it go.
