Getting to Where You're Going

Hi, and welcome back to

your Daily Mindfulness.

In today's session, we're

going to talk about letting go.

And I'd like to start by sharing a quote

by one of the greatest philosophers

of all time, Winnie the Pooh.

Winnie, the Pooh said, "I always

get to where I'm going by walking

away from where I've been."

I always get to where I'm going by

walking away from where I've been.

This quote, at least for me has a

simultaneous ah, yes, I feel so true

and then, uh, yeah, that feels so true.

There's both an excitement and a pain

that comes with this recognition.

And there are a lot of ways to

navigate the letting go process.

But I do think we can

sometimes complicate it.

And I think this simple poignant

reminder that comes with this

quote gives us the energy to move

forward with the letting go process.

It's the reminder that the only

way to get to the next exciting

chapter of our life is to walk

away from where we are right now.

Of course, this doesn't mean we need

to uproot everything in our life and

that everything is going to change.

It's just pointing to the simple fact,

whatever it is you're trying to move

toward in the future will have to look

different than what you're experiencing

right now or where you are right now.

So if you're navigating a life change, it

might be helpful to look back on your life

to other times when there was a change

for the positive and reflect on where you

were then and how you had to walk away

from that to get to where you were going.

Sometimes that walking away

happens intentionally and sometimes

it happens unintentionally,

but regardless it happens.

Eventually there is a walking

away from where you are to

get to where you're going.

And if there's a new life you're trying

to create it, it will require walking

away from where you currently are.

But we're here at Mindfulness.com

to support you along the journey.

So wishing you well, and

thank you for your practice.

Let's settle in for today's meditation.
