Life Lessons On Letting Go

The word Strikhedonia is of a greek origin and is translated to mean the pleasure of being able to say “to hell with it.” You will most often find this word used in the context of travel to emphasize the great feeling of taking your travel experience exactly how it may come.

I became enthralled with the idea of translating the concept of strikhedonia to a day to day application. What if we let go of what we have set up to be the only path to success in our mind? What if it’s more about the people we meet, the places we travel through than it is about the end destination? More importantly, what lessons do we need to learn to become faithful to ourselves?

Ralph Waldo Emerson summed up the essence of our daily struggles in this:”To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”
