Reverb 10: Let go

December 5Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?

My response: Hmmmmm.....I think I was finally able to let go of the need to finish every single book I started to read. I always said that because I read so quickly and so much, it's  not a big deal to stick it out through a not so good book. I also kind of equated it with giving up and I do not like to be a quitter. But then I realized that it doesn't matter!! Why am I wasting any of my time doing something I don't love doing if I don't have to!!I mean sure, there are responsibilities like cleaning, and laundry that I don't love doing but I NEED to do those things, I don't NEED to read a crappy book!!

 As for next year (although this isn't part of the question but I think it should be), I need to let go of what I can't control. I can't control other people's thoughts and actions, I can only control myself and how I respond to others! This is quite honestly something I've been thinking about over the past year already, but I hope to put a bit more effort into it next year!

  1. I think it is really difficult to accomplish what you are saying. It takes some life experience to be able to let go of control and it's scary but ultimately I don't think any of us has total control of our lives. I believe that when I started taking yoga lessens that I truly understood that only I can control my actions. That was a huge awakening in my life at that time. I need to let go of wanting and be able to enjoy what I have! That will need a lot of work!!!
