Embracing Change: Letting Go to Become a Healthier You


How many times have you told yourself, 'I'm going to start eating better. I'm going to hit the gym. I'm going to be a healthy person, right?' We've all been there, full of enthusiasm, ready to transform ourselves into the healthiest version we can be. But here's the challenge: letting go of old habits.


When we embark on a journey to change, especially if it involves breaking habits, it's not just about adopting new behaviors; it's about bidding farewell to the person we used to be. If we were known for devouring the cookies we baked, making the shift to eating an apple instead becomes a struggle. It's not just about swapping cookies for apples; it's about relinquishing the identity of the person who used to indulge in those cookies. Letting go is hard because that version of ourselves is deeply embedded in our daily routines—it's what we've always done.


I've been grappling with this realization lately. Whether it's about altering my eating habits or tackling more challenging tasks, I've had to bid adieu to the ease of the familiar. Doing hard things means letting go of the easy things I've been accustomed to. It's a process where a part of you has to fade away to make room for the new version.


So, if you find yourself on a journey of change, embrace the discomfort of letting go. It's not just about the cookies; it's about making room for the apple and the person you're evolving into."
