Let Go and Get to the End (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 335)


Philippians 3:14 (NLT)
I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.

We only have a limited amount of time, money, resources, and energy to do what we have been called to do in this life. Too often, we allow ourselves to get focused on what is behind us, what we have been through or are going through at the present moment, how someone has or is treating us or saying about us, or the environment in which we were brought up in, keep us back from focusing on the right things.

Stop Holding On to Things and People You Should Let Go (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 292)


(30 Things To Stop Spending Time On If You Want to Be Successful #24)

“Some of us think holding on makes us strong, but sometimes it is letting go.”
— Herman Hesse

Learning to let go of people who are no longer good for you and situations that no longer benefit you is equally as important as knowing when to hold on to the people who are good for you and stay in situations that benefit you.

3 Other Habits of Mind Maestros

Hold On Loosely (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 30)

Hold On Loosely

“Just Hold On Loosely
But don’t let go
If you cling to tightly
You’re gonna lose control.”
— Don Barnes & Jim Peterik

This title comes from a song by the same name. “Hold On Loosely” is a 1981 rock song by 38 Special. It was the first song to appear on their 4th studio album Wild-Eyed Southern Boys. The song talks about giving people space within a relationship and how not doing so can cause it to end in a breakup.

This is an important lesson not just for relationships, but for each of us in the general discourse of life. We have a tendency to hold on to things too tightly — careers, money, power, reputation, image, feelings, love, relationships, status, material possessions, and people. There comes certain times when some things must be only held loosely or let go completely. It’s not just about holding on to things; it’s also about control.

The Windshield and The Rear View Mirror (365 Days of Spirited Living – DAY 28)

The Windshield and The Rear View Mirror

“Holding on is believing that there’s a past; letting go is knowing that there’s a future.”
— Daphne Rose Kingma

When driving a vehicle, you know that it has a big windshield in front of you and a small rear view mirror on the side. These views are not in competition with each other and they do not mirror each other. But both views are necessary for effective and safe driving. The windshield helps you to see where you are going — the journey in front of you. The rear view mirror gives you a small glimpse of what is behind you to aid you along in your journey.
