Day 5: Courage to Let Go

I'm delighted with the commitment you made to work on your Attitude. It's Day 5 and the last day of the Fall Into a Be-Attitude Challenge.

Yesterday’s challenge was about having the courage to try something new.

Your challenge for today: Courage to Let Go

It doesn’t matter where you are from, what your upbringing was like, or how much money and resources you have. We all have experienced some level of hurt, heartbreak, a painful experience, or disappointment. It can be hard to let go and move on from any of these things.  

Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.

~Raymond Lindquist

Are you stuck in your emotions, finding it difficult or almost impossible to move forward from something that happened in the past? For example, you may struggle to get over a relationship or marriage that ended, physical or emotional abuse or trauma, financial loss, a missed opportunity, or perhaps a health challenge. 

I’ve experienced most of these difficulties, and by the grace of God, I have shifted my Attitude to learn to "Accept the things I cannot change, Courage to change the things I can, and Wisdom to know the difference." 

I found this encouraging quote about letting go by Brianna Wiest, the author of The Mountain Is You. Allow this quote to empower you to gain the Courage to Let Go. 

“Your new life is going to cost you your old one. It’s going to cost you your comfort zone and your sense of direction. It’s going to cost you relationships and friends. It’s going to cost you being liked, and understood. But it doesn’t matter. Because the people who are meant for you are going to meet you on the other side, and you’re going to build a new comfort zone around the things that actually move you forward. Instead of liked, you’re going to be loved. Instead of understood, you’re going to be seen. All you’re going to lose is what was built for a person you no longer are.”

What do you need to Let Go of today?


Challenge Activity:

What will you Let Go of today? Perform one of the acts of courage below:

  • I will let go of past hurt, hangup, or a habit.
  • I will let go of comparing myself to others or blaming others for my problems.
  • I will let go of a relationship, work environment, or activity that is negative and keeps my spirit down or impacts my health.

Remember, this is a challenge. If using your voice to ask for what you want is easy for you, it doesn’t qualify as courageous, and you are not challenging yourself to finish strong. So dig deep and challenge yourself today. 

Courage Memory Verse:

“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” - 2 Timothy 1:7

Congratulation. You reached the end of the Fall into a Be-Attitude Challenge.

Do you believe there will never be a time when you don't need courage?
