For a good portion of my life I felt stuck and not happy with where I was at. I had this constant feeling that there was more for me in this life. I wanted more in life, I needed more in life because the life I was living just didn’t seem to fit. If I was ever going to experience more in life, something needed to change. I wanted off the wheel I was running and to find a deeper peace. How was I going to turn this around?

In concept, letting go is the easiest thing to do, but in practice it can be one of the hardest things to master. How do we let go? What holds us back from letting go?
