Letting go is one of the hardest things we have to pick up in life. It’s hard because it’s something that we don’t want to do but we know we NEED to do.

I am sure we have all been there. As we grow older, there will be more things we have to learn to let go. Friendships that we once treasured, relationships with the people we love but just don’t work out or simply bad habits/situations that we have been staying stuck with for a long time, and I am sure the list goes on.

No matter what you are planning to let go, it’s good to get some inspirations and motivations along the way. Here I would like to share with you some of the quotes I keep going back to whenever I need to let go something I reluctant to in 2017.
