let certain things go

Do you ever hold on to things, situations, people for too long? Trust me, I do. I have things in my closet that I absolutely can’t give up, but really need to go. I have situations that I replay over and over in my head that need to stop being rehashed. I have people who should be cut off from my life because they are a negative force – rather than a positive one. Letting go has been something something on my mind and I want to make a conscious effort to actually do just that. Sometimes I just need to breathe and let go of less important things {like weird jeans or boots from two years ago} but more importantly, big things like negativity, undeserved hurts and people that don’t treat me well. Here’s a few words on letting go for today’s Words for Wednesday post. xx

That is why it is so important to let certain things go. To release them. To cut loose. People need to understand that no one is playing with marked cards; sometimes we win and sometimes we lose. Don’t expect to get anything back, don’t expect recognition for your efforts, don’t expect your genius to be discovered or your love to be understood. Complete the circle. Not out of pride, inability or arrogance, but simply because whatever it is no longer fits in your life. Close the door, change the record, clean the house, get rid of the dust. Stop being who you were and become who you are.
