Sometimes you come across someone who really resonates with you; someone whose words stand out in your mind as you battle through the obstacles of life and Mandy Hale is one of those people for me.
I’ve learned so much about letting things go, letting things just be and having patience for what is yet to come. Without expecting anything, but always hoping for the best. Today, I would like to share with you 25 of the most powerful life lessons from Mandy Hale that I’ve learned about letting go of what is, what was and trusting that the best is yet to come.
1. Sometimes a heartbreak isn’t what we want it’s what we need.
“Sometimes it takes a heartbreak to shake us awake & help us see we are worth so much more than we’re settling for.” -Mandy Hale
2. Sometimes being lost, is the best way to find yourself.
“Sometimes when you lose your way, you find YOURSELF.”- Mandy Hale
3. Have faith, you will find your path.
“Realize that if a door closed, it’s because what was behind it wasn’t meant for you.”- Mandy Hale
4.When you learn how to be alone you’ll know the difference between alone and lonely.
“Being brave enough to be alone frees you up to invite people into your life because you want them and not because you need them.”- Mandy Hale
5.“You can love them, forgive them, want good things for them…but still move on without them.”- Mandy Hale
6. We tend to relive the past in our minds like a broken record until we finally accept that it’s just a memory.
“To get over the past, you first have to accept that the past is over. No matter how many times you revisit it, analyze it, regret it, or sweat it…it’s over. It can hurt you no more.”- Mandy Hale
7 “It’s OKAY to be scared. Being scared means you’re about to do something really, really brave.”
8.Sometimes we need to move on because we have outgrown ourselves.
“You will evolve past certain people. Let yourself.”- Mandy Hale
9. You always have a choice, don’t settle for less.
“Ten years from now, make sure you can say that you CHOSE your life, you didn’t SETTLE for it.” – Mandy Hale
10.“The right one for you will move mountains to be with you – he won’t hide behind them.”- Mandy Hale
11. Holding on to negativity only hurts you, let it go.
“Love people who hate you. Pray for people who have wronged you. It won’t just change their life…it’ll change yours.”- Mandy Hale
12. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes, there aren’t any.
“Sometimes a “mistake” can end up being the best decision you ever make.”- Mandy Hale
13.“Sometimes you have to move on without certain people. If they’re meant to be in your life, they’ll catch up.”- Mandy Hale
14. Like a butterfly burrowing from its chrysalis, so shall you find your wings, if you only take the time to find yourself.
“A season of loneliness and isolation is when the caterpillar gets its wings. Remember that next time you feel alone.”- Mandy Hale
15. To move on, you must surrender to your pain and accept it as your own. Only then will you heal inside.
“You can’t truly heal from a loss until you allow yourself to really FEEL the loss.”- Mandy Hale
16.“Life isn’t meant to be lived perfectly…but merely to be LIVED. Boldly, wildly, beautifully, uncertainly, imperfectly, magically LIVED.”- Mandy Hale
17. Let go of the attachment, keep the lesson.
“We can let go of the person or love or friendship without letting go of the lesson.”- Mandy Hale
18.Life is a journey, trust the process.
“What we are waiting for is not as important as what happens to us while we are waiting. Trust the process.”- Mandy Hale
19. There are miracles everyday, you just need to be looking the right way.
“Keep your head up, your faith strong, and your eyes open for the little miracles all around you…because they are there, just waiting to be discovered.”- Mandy Hale
20. You don’t need to convince anyone of anything
“You’re beautiful, just the way you are. Shine on. And dare anyone to turn off the lights.”- Mandy Hale
21.Loving yourself first sets the tone for your entire life in every relationship.
“You cannot ask someone to like you or love you more than you like or love yourself. YOU have to set the standard.”- Mandy Hale
22. Self worth can only be measured by you, set the bar high.
“Loneliness is designed to help you discover who you are…and to stop looking outside yourself for your worth.”- Mandy Hale
23.“If you’re still waiting for it, it mean you’re not yet ready for it…whatever “it” is…so stop looking at waiting as a punishment and start looking at it as preparation!”- Mandy Hale
24. Never sell yourself short.
“You have a destiny and a purpose that no one else on this earth can fulfill…and you have traveled a unique journey that has equipped you along the way with the tools you need to carry it out.” – Mandy Hale
25 “Growth is painful. Change is painful. But nothing is as painful as staying stuck somewhere you don’t belong.”
