Letting go...

It doesn't take a lot of strength to hold on.  It takes a lot of strength to let go. ~J.C. Watts

It seems like an easy enough thing to do. But, in reality, letting go of the things that hold us back is so much harder than you would think. That being said, I think that being able to let go of the things that are not helpful to you is probably one of the biggest steps toward being more positive and motivated in all areas of your life. Today, my goal is to let go of the things that make me moody or unproductive, because those are the things that are not necessary for me to worry about. The kids are fighting? No big deal. Tell them to figure it out, shut them in a room and stop worrying. Eventually they will figure it out. And if it suddenly gets quiet, you might just check to make sure WWIII hasn't just happened in your house. Feeling pulled in too many directions? Figure out which ones are absolutely unavoidable and purge the rest. It will make you feel so much lighter and happier. Take the weight off. It's not an easy thing to do, but it is worth it. So start letting go of the things that way you down or hold you back.

Have a great week!
