“If life can remove someone you never dreamed of losing, it can replace them with someone you never dreamt of having.” ~ Unknown
After a really long break I got to write for Elephant Journal once again. A lot of things and events have kept me occupied and busy, but when this quote popped on my screen, I knew it appeared for a reason. And before I knew I had a post ready.
What do you do when you have been consumed with hurt? What do you do when a loved one shuns you? What do you do when things can never be the same again? Do you feel sad? Do you play the events in your mind and think what could you have done better? Too many questions, right?
I have realized that some things tend to consume us with anger, sadness, despair and regret. Life has its own way of hurling situations at us. Many things have happened to me that have left me consumed with sadness and guilt, but the day I decided to let go, I found it liberating. I found it easier to move on and be happier. I am sharing my seven step mantra that makes it easier for me to move on when the going gets tough.
Letting go to be happy
Changing the perception
This was one of the first things that I did to be able to move on. I looked at incidents as a stepping stone to understand an underlying situation. Changing the perception I had about the situation helped me look at an incident in a different way. I took off those blinkers to understand a situation better.
Choosing to meditate
When I meditated I was able to channelize my thoughts as positive ones and it made me dwell lesser on things that upset me. What is more important is that it helped me live in the present. Deep breathing always helps to clear the head and get rid of the accumulated negative energies. Try it! It helped me focus on things that I could control instead of what I could not.
