‘Delete or Let It Go’

let go 2This morning I spent some time going through some of the photos on my phone – and deleting some of them – those that had been uploaded by social media that I had little interest in – except just a passing glance – and those that I had more than one copy of – due to the ease in which we now take multiple pictures in order to make sure we get a good one!

Of course another reason for doing this – is that from time to time I get a message on my devises – telling me that I am running out of storagelet go 7 – so I have to look at my photos – downloads – messages etc – and decide what I can delete – or remove – in order to free up space.

I recognise that the same can happen in my life too – and I need to delete – or remove things – those things that can clutter up my life – in order to make room for new things. Sometimes we hang on to things – do things – simply because that’s what we’ve always done – yet need to ask ourselves the question – does that still help me to be who I should be today – is that what I need – or need to do – in order to be what God wants me to be at this moment in my life.

My life can be so full that I have no time to maybe fit in those things that need to have a place – have room.

As I get older there are things that I simply have to let go of – things I can no longer physically do – and it would be foolish of me to try to continue in the same way. What I have come to realise is that there is always something else to take the place of those things – always a different way that I can live my life – always something new.

It’s so easy to hold onto – not simply possessions – but anger – anxiety – grudges – regrets – even ‘could haves’ and ‘should haves’ – those things from our past that hold us back from moving forward.

As I think on these things – I determine to keep a check on the ‘storage facility’ of my life – to make sure I’m not ‘too full’ – to keep checking what I need to ‘delete’ from my life – what I need to ‘let go of’ – so that my life will be richer and full of the things that really matter – and allow me to be truly free.

    Great blog post! I have found letting go an amazingly important part of life in so many ways. Everything from decluttering your mailbox to letting go of old grievances is essential in moving on and going forward.
