I struggle with anxiety. Instead of a New Year's resolution for 2015, I chose the word "SURRENDER" to define my year. Believing in the power of faith and love, I yearn to conquer my fears and surrender my controlling thoughts to trust in the process of life. Inspired by the concept of The Giving Keys, I purchased a "LET GO" necklace to serve as a constant reminder to my choice for the year.
I recently spent the weekend in LA reconnecting with an old friend. While sharing in some honest and raw conversation, my anxiety completely evaporated because I was fully able to trust and be in the moment. Her passion for life and carefree nature is inspiring. I understand now that my anxiety may never completely vanish, but I can create daily restorative habits to prevent them from becoming so consuming.
With this realization, I heard her own desire to let go of control, especially with some difficult situations she has faced after becoming engaged. She struggles with blending her logical and emotional minds. It is my hope that the "let go" necklace will serve as her reminder to trust in the power of her intuition, and even when things don't go the way she expected them to, that she can surrender and believe that everything is still happening for her.
