The Hardest Thing You Do Every Day: Learning to Let Go and Trust the Universe

What is the hardest thing that you do every day? For many, it’s the internal tug-of-war between wanting to surrender and let go, and the desire to feel in control. This struggle is all too common. There’s an inherent need to manage every aspect of life and work, yet deep down, there's also the understanding that true peace comes from letting go.

This internal conflict is exhausting. It’s a challenge to take a deep breath and whisper, "Surrender. You can't control everything. It will work out the way it will, and that will be ok in the long run."

Understanding that there’s no actual control over everything is crucial. Trying to micromanage the world only causes unnecessary stress. Sometimes, before even thinking consciously, the tendency is to try and control the outcome of something for oneself or someone cared about.

However, looking back on life, everything always works out. Sometime the outcome was great and other times there was an important lesson learned. It’s never for nothing. Everything will be ok, and sometimes the road needs to be bumpy to reach the most beautiful destinations. If life were always easy and smooth, it would be boring. A big, adventurous, beautiful life, full of laughter and fulfillment, is what many desire.

The Value of Letting Go

Learning to let go and trust the process can transform life in remarkable ways. Here are a few benefits:
  1. Reduced Stress: Constantly trying to control every detail can be incredibly stressful. Letting go alleviates this pressure.
  2. Increased Flexibility + Resilence: Embracing uncertainty allows for more adaptability and resilience in the face of change.
  3. Improved Relationships: Releasing control can lead to more authentic and harmonious relationships, as expectations and demands decrease.
  4. Greater Happiness: When not fixated on outcomes, it becomes easier to find joy in the journey and appreciate the present moment.
  5. Personal Growth: Letting go opens up opportunities for growth, as new experiences and perspectives are welcomed.

Tips for Surrendering and Trusting the Process

  1. Practice Mindfulness: Incorporate mindfulness into the daily routine. Taking a few moments to breathe deeply and center oneself can make a huge difference. Mindfulness is not just yoga or meditation. It looks a little different for everyone. Try a few different approaches until you find the practice that serves you best.
  2. Affirmations: Use positive affirmations to reinforce trust in the universe. Remind yourself that you are capable and everything will work out as it should. The internet is full of affirmation ideas or you can come up with your own. Putting a post-it up in a high traffic area of your home is a great way to see the message throughout the day. 
  3. Reflect on Past Successes: Look back at times when things worked out, even if the path was unexpected. This can help reinforce trust in the process.
  4. Stay Present: Focus on the present moment rather than worrying about the future. This can reduce anxiety and help you feel more in control. This moment, right here right now - you won't get it back so be here. 
  5. Healthy Habits: Maintain healthy habits like drinking matcha 😉 , moving your body in ways that feels good, and getting plenty of sleep. These habits can improve overall well-being and make it easier to let go of stress.
Surrendering control and trusting the universe is a daily challenge, but it’s one that can lead to a more fulfilling and less stressful life. So, take a deep breath, sip some matcha, and let go. Trust that everything will work out perfectly, just as it always has.

Get some matcha, take a deep breath, and surrender to the flow of the world. Know that it will all work out, eventually 😉
