After several failed attempts to break free from my diet soda addiction, I finally went cold-cold turkey about a month ago.
Why did I stop drinking Diet Pepsi?
How did I do it?
After failing twice this year, I was able to successfully stop drinking Diet Pepsi once I made a shift in my thinking: I was not giving something up, I was choosing to let something go.
Giving something up implies that we are making a sacrifice. It implies that we are surrendering. I am not sacrificing Diet Pepsi and I am not surrendering to it either. What I am choosing to do is let go of something that is harming me, something that doesn’t serve me or my purpose.
As I prepare for 2014, there are a few other things on my list that I am choosing to let go. I’ve got a vision for the clients I want to serve and for the Called + Confident movement. I can’t do the things I need to do if I hold onto the things that are weighing me down.
