loving LET IT GO


I found this on a favourite read of mine 'The Style Net'. I am a person that always worries how people perceive
me and I take on board comments and criticism to let it affect me for days at a time.
My daughters are constantly saying "Let It Go". This something I am trying to learn to do this year.

In this fast paced world it is so easy to get caught up in the ‘whirlwind’ of life and forget about what is actually important and what we want in life. Let go of the negative and useless thoughts that are holding you back and create space in your mind to think and achieve your dreams.
Let go of everyone’s opinion of you. ‘What others think of you is none of your business”. None of us like to be criticized, particularly when it comes from those close to us, however constantly trying to please others is not only exhausting but moves us further away from who we truly are. Be your authentic self, and you will be far happier and attract the people who will love you for who you are.
Let go of what everyone else wants for you. Do the things you want to do in life, not what your friends and family tell you you should be doing. As Steve Jobs said, “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life.  Don’t be trapped by dogma, which is living with the results of other people’s thinking.  Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice, heart and intuition.  They somehow already know what you truly want to become.  Everything else is secondary.”
Let go of boundaries and instead dream big. When you start something new or take something in a new direction, there will always be others who will tell you not to do it, that it will never work and that you are crazy for even trying. Ignore them all, block out the negative noise, do your planning and then just do it!
Let go of jealous feelings and concerns about what everyone else has. Life is not always fair and there will always be someone with more money, a more successful career, a bigger house, a more expensive car, a better relationship… and the list goes on. Instead, focus on the great things in your life and be grateful for what you have.
Let go of the things you can’t control. There are some things in life that are beyond our control, so instead of draining your energy trying to control these factors, instead focus on how to deal with them as best you can. Sometimes we don’t have a choice in the outcome, but we always have a choice in how we deal with it.
