"Pleasure in letting go, pain in certainty"
I painted this painting while listening to a podcast about letting go and manifestation. They kept touching on the fear of uncertainty being what is standing in the way of manifesting your dreams. I have such a hard time letting go. Walking into the unknown. Allowing myself to fully enjoy the moment without fear of wondering what will happen next. Which ultimately puts me in a position of trying to control everything. They talked about how walking into the unknown, uncertainty, will bring magic beyond your wildest dreams because you finally are able to LET GO.
"pleasure in letting go, pain in certainty" Since listening to that podcast that statement has become a mantra that I've been using daily. Having that knowledge, and hearing that concept explained in the way it was, helped me become more aware of when I was fearing uncertainty. Every time I've been able to fully let go and walk into the unknown: amazing things happen. Actively practicing this in my daily life, starting with easier situations, gaining confidence to work my way to the big triggers: I have seen a huge mindset shift.
