We must be willing to let go of the life we planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us. ~Joseph Campbell

I love this quote, but have to say it scares me. It is a difficult thing to just ‘let go’. We cling to what we already have, what we already know, what we are comfortable with. Even if we know better. Even if we want more.

When we keep clinging to our old life (out of fear usually) we can’t move forward. We can’t grow. We can’t blossom. We can’t achieve all of our dreams. We become stuck.

But here’s the thing. You have to trust yourself to let go. Because there is that brief moment when you let go and leap, where you have to trust that you are going to land where you need to. When you are hanging in mid-air, so to speak, and anything can happen. That brief moment is scary, and that is why we don’t leap, but also why we have to leap. It is why we cling to our old life even when we REALLY are ready for the next stage.

I’m here to tell you to Trust yourself and Let Go and Leap……..and get the life you want!

  1. I love this quote. Once, I did that. And it was incredibly scary. It was beyond scary. But it worked. And it was good after that leap. 🙂
