This seems to have been my theme for some time now, whether its stuff that I need to let go of, stuff that I see in others that would help them if only they could let go of it; such as my some of my clients who are holding onto outdated ideas, models and dreams that are no longer serving them, putting themselves in a state of anxiety about making decisions, when really the decision is very simple; and also some of my friends, my dear friends that I´ve had conversations with around this very subject, and how we all need to let go of something… and how when we do, it all ends up being good, it´s just we can´t know what we don´t know, so we end up plagued with ifs, buts and maybes, and it leaves us feeling stuck and indecisive.
Invariably, we all have our own answer as to whether letting go is a good thing. 9 times out of ten, if we have to ask ourselves ´should I let go´ we already know we should, we just want the safety of the old. That comfort blanket. The thing is, when we let go and move forward into the new, a new comfort blanket shows up.
For those that have been following my journey over the last few months, (mostly over Facebook) , you´ll know I´ve been through a massive evolution… a huge awakening to my purpose, my life and what I truly love. You´ll know that I´ve also been going through that letting go scenario…with questions running through my head like, ´Who am I to do this?´, ´but how is that a business?´, and ´What will people say?´ and so much more…
And a lot of it is really daft.
In the grand scheme of things, I am me, and I am in complete control of my own destiny, it is a business because I know I can and do make a massive difference to people, and really, people will say what people will say, what they think is none of my business, some of it I will love, some of it I won´t, all of it is ok.
A lot of it has really amazed me.
The attachments I´ve created to ´virtual things´, such as my website, where my attachment is more the work that went into it, the links that are now going to link to nothing when I pull it down, my Facebook page, oh my that was a biggie! I even tried contacting Facebook to ask if I could change the name, figuring that the address didn´t matter that it said The Systems Superwoman, as long as the name appeared on the page as Kerry Anne Orr. Facebook disagreed, and said that they are two different, they couldn´t change it, because the 648 lovely folk that liked my page may get confused.
I have to start again if I want my page to be called Kerry Anne Orr.
But guess what? It´s ok. It really is, all of it. I´m not even sure if I want a page now.
Because I know why I´m here. I know in the muscle what I´m here to do, and how I do it. I´ve learned the art of letting go, and a new me is emerging…
So, I´ve now done what any letting go artiste would do, I´ve set a date! Yes, as from 8th June, (a highly significant date for me, more on that later!) I´m switching off The Systems Superwoman, and hiding behind it no longer…. watch out world!
