Letting Go

I used to carry the below passage around with me many years ago.
I received it at a 12 step meeting; it’s author read as anonymous.
Since then some circles have attributed Louise Hay as the author.

It’s no accident that there is tremendous relief in the sweet surrender
of letting go.  So many times when I have done this, just turned over
what ever is troubling me to the Universe – answers, winks and nods
from the Universe seem to come flooding in.  The letting go is its own
reward though, whether or not anything changes.

Love, Bethie

I’ve been getting them for a few years, he personalizes them
with your name in it.  They are thoughtful as well as fun to read.
Enjoy this one that he sent out today:

Just look to those who already possess as you wish to possess
or who’ve already achieved as you wish to achieve, and ask
yourself whether or not they have some special gift that you do
not have? If they have more angels working on their behalf? If
they’re any more loved than you are now loved? If they have
suffered more, worked harder, or waited longer than you? If
I would permit them to be “luckier” or have it easier than you?
And you will see, after careful consideration, that their success
depended upon none of these things. It arrived simply because
they expected it to arrive, and then they lived their life accordingly.

Boom, there it is –
