let it go day

Today is officially Let It Go Day. Because, you know, parents need to be reminded of that song.

But seriously, it’s a real day.

Today, I’m letting go. I’m letting go of being angry over things I can’t change. I’m letting go of being attached to things that don’t matter, of hurt that is not mine to hold. I’m letting go of everything that’s holding me in the past, and I’m moving forward.

I’m letting go of worring about my mental health, and accepting that actually, I just need to work on it.

I’m letting go of memories I want to forget, experiences I wish I’d never remembered, people who bring nothing but negativity to my life.

I’m letting go of the feeling that I’m not good enough, not clever enough not talented enough, not pretty enough.

I’m letting go of the voice of judgement in my head that tuts at me whenever I spend money on myself or let S have Smarties before her tea.

… at least, I’m working on it.

Today, I’m working on letting it all go.

 

What will you let go of today?

Today (or rather tomorrow) I will be letting go of a door! I am having new door fitted & have to ‘let go’ of my front room door, which has marks of my childrens growth – the last mark being my son (middle child now 37) in 1998. The marks are all faded but I know they are there & I wanted to keep the door to re-use (in a shed?) but my husband says it’s time to let go.
