The Courage of Letting Go

The Courage of Letting Go

Letting go is a real life choice. Not only a path to authentically stay present to the groundless situations that happen in our relationships, it is also a remarkable, courageous surrender to controlling the outcome. The trade off of certainty for a real experience of the present moment is more than worth it as Wendy Strgar, the Loveologist, interviews author Laura Munson on her radio show Lunch With The Loveologist Wednesdays on LA Talk Radio at noon. In this interview with Wendy, Laura describes her season of unlikely happiness in This is Not the Story You Think It Is… Don’t miss the profound wisdom that comes with the courage of letting go and realizing how happiness is really an inside job.

The reality is that there's absolutely nothing we really control but ourselves, and even at times that's in question LOL. So letting go, consciously, is probably one of the healthiest things we can do in stressful situations.

Letting go of a controlled bad situation can be very rewarding but letting go of an uncontrolled situation,sach as loved one being terminally ill,well that can be very difficult and most often agonizing...our heart is a pyramid of complexity. Thank you.
