World Mental Health Day will take place on 10th October 2021. The overall objective of the day is to raise awareness of mental health issues around the world, and to mobilise efforts in support of mental health.
Catalyst 14 will be supporting World Mental Health Day by offering you the chance to join a free guided mindfulness practice with the theme of ‘letting go.’
You can find the free resource of this mindfulness practice here.
For some further inspiration, we would like to share with you the poem ‘Letting go’ by Nelson Mandela.
To let go doesn’t mean to stop caring: it means I can’t do it for someone else.
To let go is not to cut myself off; it is the realization that I can’t control another.
To let go is not to enable, but to allow learning from natural consequences. To let go is to admit powerlessness, which means the outcome is not in my hands.
To let go is not to try to change or blame another;
I can only change myself.
To let go is not to care for, but to care about. To let go is not to fix, but to be supportive.
To let go is not to judge, but to allow another to be a human being.
To let go is not to be in the middle arranging outcomes, but to allow others to effect their own outcomes. To let go is not to be protective; it is to permit another to face reality.
To let go is not to deny, but to accept.
To let go is not to nag, scold, or argue, but to search out my own shortcomings and to correct them
To let go is not to adjust everything to my desires, but to take each day as it comes and to cherish the moment.
To let go is not to criticize and regulate anyone, but to try to become what I dream I can be. To let go is not to regret the past, but to grow and live for the future.
To let go is to fear less and love more.
