119: Letting Go Is Hard

May 26, 2021

Letting go is hard, but being free is beautiful. 


In this episode, Jill does her first ever SOLO episode about all the things she is currently LETTING GO.  If you are in a season of transition and are feeling all the things, then I hope this episode helps you process and simplify your headspace to just keep swimming! 


P.S. Nick, I missed your handsome voice and perspective during this conversation and I love you very much.



“Let go of certainty. The opposite isn’t uncertainty. It’s openness, curiosity and a willingness to embrace paradox, rather than choose sides. The ultimate challenge is to accept ourselves exactly as we are, but never stop trying to learn and grow.” 

~Tony Schwartz


“Some people believe holding on and hanging in there are signs of great strength. However, there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go and then do it.”

 ~Ann Lander


“The day I understood everything, was the day I stopped trying to figure everything out. The day I knew peace was the day I let everything go.” 

~C. JoyBell


“To let go does not mean to get rid of. To let go means to let be. When we let be with compassion, things come and go on their own.”

 ~Jack Kornfield


15) “You can’t possibly embrace that new relationship, that new companion, that new career, that new friendship, or that new life you want, while you’re still holding on to the baggage of the last one. Let go… and allow yourself to embrace what is waiting for you right at your feet.” 

~Steve Maraboli


“The greatest step towards a life of simplicity is to learn to let go.” 

~Steve Maraboli


“Life is made up of a collection of moments that are not ours to keep. The pain we encounter throughout our days spent on this earth comes from the illusion that some moments can be held onto. Clinging to people and experiences that were never ours in the first place is what causes us to miss out on the beauty of the miracle that is the now. All of this is yours, yet none of it is. How could it be? Look around you. Everything is fleeting. To love and let go, love and let go, love and let go…it’s the single most important thing we can learn in this lifetime.” 

~Rachel Brathen


“There are things that we never want to let go of, people we never want to leave behind. But keep in mind that letting go isn’t the end of the world, it’s the beginning of a new life.”



“You only struggle because you’re ready to grow but aren’t willing to let go.”

~Drew Gerald


“Courage is the power to let go of the familiar.”

~Raymond Lindquist  


"If you're brave enough to say good-bye, life will reward you with a new hello."  

~Paulo Coelho
