Let it go

Is it really that important, anyway?

What do we mean by “let it go”? Well, Merriam Webster defines it as “to forget or not care about something”. They also define the idiom by, “to sell something (for a specified amount)”. I’m focusing on the former. I don’t have anything to sell to you at this point.

If you have something that’s been weighing you down, something that’s been on you mind no matter how hard you try to ignore it, perhaps you should consider one of two things and be done with it:

1) Face it head-on. It may be ugly, it may be hard, but once you are done with it, you will be able to move on.

2) Determine if it’s really worth the fret you’ve put yourself under. Yes, you heard me, you did it. Nobody else. It’s your mind, nobody can get inside of it. If this issue is not worth the trouble, and it has not negatively impacted any other human or animal, is it worth fussing over?

If you find it difficult to pin point what’s bothering you, I suggest you start journaling. Do it free-form, with a pencil, and a few sheets of paper. Just write what comes into your mind. Keep on writing. It will come to you. In fact, the solution may even present itself to you.

You can also pray about it. God will answer you, if you listen.

I, myself, am working on this “letting go”. I’ve finally resigned myself to let go, and let God handle it for me. He is much bigger than I, a mere mortal. He can take it on for me, and let me focus on other things.

I am a work in progress. I am not perfect. And so are you. You can do this.
