Making Space and Finding Joy

I went to church today and the sermon was about letting go of things and ideas that we no longer need or no longer serve us. On the back of the Order of Service I found these quotes that I’d like to share:

Anything I cannot transform into something marvelous, I let go. – Anais Nin

I realize there’s something incredibly honest about trees in winter, how they’re experts at letting things go. – Jeffrey McDaniel

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar. – Raymond Lindquist

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change. – Charles Darwin

All the art of living lies in a fine mingling of letting go and holding on. – Havelock Ellis

The mental and physical space we create by letting go of things that belong in our past gives usthe option to fill the space with something new. – Susan Fay West

When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be. When I let go of what I have, I receive what I need. – Tao TeChing

You’ve got to make a conscious choice every day to shed the old – whatever “the old” means for you. – Sarah Ban Breathnach
