I’m not sure if I’m a fan of this definition, but I love the word.
“I am willing to release the need for…”
Insert your shit pickle! 
Think about it, if you didn’t have some kind of need for it, whether on a metaphysical, mental, spiritual, or physical level, your condition, would not exist. Accept this, and it becomes so empowering, you are in control. 
A lovely lady, named Kris Care once said, “your issues are in your tissues!”  
For me, there’s nothing like running out a bad day, it gets me into and outta my head, my endorphins kick in, and I feel strong, and empoweringly  vulnerable. My stresses, and sorrows come out with my sweat, making room for peace and happiness in my body! Oh yeah!
It came up in my “release” research, that in order to release anything, I had to trust.  (Not so) Coincidentally my word yesterday was trust. And though I knew it before, it’s never hit me harder that I am a complete pistanthrobiac (trust-a-phobiac) or how significant this is. In order to release, I have to trust that the universe will supply, and that everything is, and always will be, okay.
Though forgiveness and release are different things, their really tied up in each others business. Kinda feeling like “forgiveness” might be sent to me tomorrow. The distinction is that release is just giving up the emotional attachment, to old memories. 
Things I am Willing to Let go Of: a List
by Charmaine Nordtvedt
-physical clutter
-thoughts of unworthiness(these lead to procrastination, ick!) 
-spiritual abuse, and spiritually abusive thoughts
-relationships that no longer serve me
-old hurts
-the past
-lashing out at others
-any person, thought, attachment, object, standard, habit, or practice, that no longer serves me. 
What’s your list???
Now for some soul medicine from Luis Hay, that defiantly isn’t going to need a spoon full of sugar:
“I am willing to let go. I release. I let go. I release all tension. I release all fear. I release all anger. I release all guilt. I release all sadness. I let go of all old limitations. I let go, and I am at peace. 
I am at peace with myself. I am at peace with the process of life. I am safe. ”
