Life is a balance of holding on and letting go – Rumi

Isn’t it though?  As parents we often hold on so tightly to our children until one day we realize…..we need to let them go.  As children ourselves we hold on to our parents and grandparents knowing that at some point….we need to let them go.  What I’ve discovered through my yoga practice is that life is about finding the space in between holding on and letting go.  It’s the difference between effort and effortless….between doing and being.  It’s the sweet spot.

We hold on and let go a million times a day…at work, at school, in life.  The difference is in knowing when to hold on and when to let go realizing that letting go may just mean surrendering to what is.  Holding on to the thought that it should be different often causes angst and stress, while letting go (surrendering to) the way it is often brings a whole new peace…and perspective.

What have you been holding on to?  What can you let go of?  Let’s journey together, find the space in between and enjoy the sweet spot of life.

Breathe in. Breathe out. Repeat.
