Why are you “clutching” onto things?

Many times we hold onto things because we feel that we don’t have permission to let it go. We don’t have the proper understanding of why we do the things that we do and we can’t imagine how we can go on without “it.”

Holding onto our burdens can be extremely overwhelming. We fear that we will make a mistake if we let something go and most of the time, more than anything- we don’t know where to start the process of letting go.

While I love a good clutch (the handbag kind), I wanted to incorporate my typical “lust list” fashion post with something with a little more meaning on this dreary, rainy Boston day.

We need to be able to let things go. This is one of the greatest life lessons I have ever been taught. Being able to accept the truth and be thankful, knowing how to distance yourself from negativity, focusing on what can be changed instead of what can’t, and claiming ownership of your life are all steps that will set you free. This will allow you to focus on today, on the now, on the present, and on bettering yourself as a human being.

While in class last night, my professor told us that one of her favorite quotes comes from a private school not too far away from BC. The Dexter Southfield School is located in Brookline Massachusetts and their school motto is “Our Best Today, Better Tomorrow.”

This struck a chord with me. It related all the thoughts and beliefs that I have today, with all the hopes that I have for tomorrow. I absolutely love this quote.


So shop for a new clutch, because you know you want to, and because they’re all adorable, but also remember that you may be unnecessarily clutching onto bad energy that you don’t need. We only get today once, so make it a good one!
