The idea of "Letting Go" of "Stuff" that does nothing but bring you down. Letting go of old ideas and images of yourself. Our tendency is sometimes to "react" to things the way we've always reacted and if that hasn't worked for you in the past. Sometimes you have to stop and talk to yourself and remind yourself you are not the same person you were because hopefully you're growing. Get rid of the old script and let go of the old you.
This sort of attitude and attempt at change could probably serve us well as we go into the holidays and are surrounded by family. There could be old issues and feelings that have nothing to do with who you are today.
Instead of walking around on eggshells, get rid of the eggshells and let go of the negative 'stuff'. Don't engage in any family drama, just let it go and watch what happens.
