Letting Go of Urgency...

Today I want to share one of my favorite readings from the book, "The Language of Letting Go" by Melody Beattie. This is a reading that I've worked with for several years and it's helped me a lot.

Letting Go of Urgency
One thing at a time.
That’s all we have to do.
Not two things at once.
But one thing done in peace.
One task at a time.
One feeling at a time.
One day at a time.
One problem at a time.
One step at a time.
One pleasure at a time.
Relax. Let go of the urgency.
Begin calmly now.
Take one thing at a time.
See how everything works out?

Today, I will peacefully approach
one thing at a time. When in doubt
I will take first things first.
