Sometimes we go through life like a “Weekend at Bernie’s” movie; carrying dead weight around in hopes to live a normal, healthy, productive life. The truth is, in order to have a prosperous future, you have to shed the dead weight that you’ve been carrying. The moment you let go of what no longer serves you, you’ll move gracefully through the obstacles hurled your way.

I spent every day for the past two months with a “Bernie” draped around my shoulders. It wasn’t until I realized how counterproductive it was to hold on to things that no longer serve me, that I decided to LET GO and breathe.

You’ll begin to see advancement in your life when you let go of the dead weight. After all, it’s easier to maneuver without extra baggage weighing you down. Let go and LIVE!

People look for retreats for themselves, in the country, by the coast, or in the hills . . . There is nowhere that a person can find a more peaceful and trouble-free retreat than in his own mind. . . . So constantly give yourself this retreat, and renew yourself.
