CATALYST FOR AN EXTRAORDINARY LIFE
Last night while reading Spiritual Divorce, Divorce as a Catalyst for an Extraordinary Life-by Debbie Ford. I am up to the third set of healing action steps--a series of questions that I need to answer. What am I resisting in my life? What am I afraid of? What will happen if I surrender to the situation? What am I getting out of holding on to the resistance? Who is getting hurt? What obstacles need to be removed before I can surrender? I spent about an hour pondering and writing in my journal. These questions were very direct and I am forced to deal with them. On paper things don't look as scary. I don't won't to give up my home, but if holding on to it at all cost is like handcuffs on my wrist and I can't move forward because of it, then, for the sake of sanity and financial breathing room. I have to let it go. This is my struggle. This is my biggest fear. I know I can get there--I am there.
