One of my personal issues is learning to let go. Sometimes I can’t seem to get myself to surrender, to trust that everything will work out for the best. I cling, hold on, grasp so tightly it becomes suffocating. And it was only very recently that I accepted the fact that there are things I can and cannot change.

You see, when we hold on to something (even with the purest of intentions), it consumes us. It makes us selfish, it hinders our growth, and it’s definitely not pretty. I guess one of the things I learned about letting go is to appreciate the little things. It’s gratitude day in, day out (I have my Headspace app to thank for this). My Barre3 classes have helped me cope and release any form of emotional stress — it has cleared my head, and has made me more happy and relaxed.
