[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Letting Go
To those who are divinely meant to be in my life I WELCOME YOU. I have a
lot of love to give... To those who are not... I send you love and peace on
your journey. I release, relinquish, and let go.I bless 2016 and all that is to come!

I loved having things go my way, it has been almost like an obsession, I
remember growing up my mother would get frustrated and say to me in
annoyance "You always want YOUR OWN WAY, life is not like that baby girl"
And this "wanting my own way" spilled over to relationships especially with
men. I would have a singular focus, to the point sometimes of crossing my
boundaries, even sometimes making dishonoring choices in the name of having
it my way and wanting it to go the way I want it to go. This process took
some undoing. This process took me to a place of recognizing that
boundaries and self love, self honor and letting go is a huge part of the
journey and part of having my own way is a combination of ego and wanting
to be in control. Fear based thinking. As I go into 2016, I know for sure
that letting go takes courage, discipline and self love. It is essential on
life's journey, having things my own way when they go against the tenets of
self love, of peace, of good common sense. When having your own way is
pursued to "avoid looking bad" , to get back at the other person - to show
them that you are right and worthy, it is a bad idea. My intention is to let go, bless and learn the lessons in 2016, a little
different to having it my own way Peace!
