I am just as guilty as everyone else. I hold onto things, I let them bother me, I let them eat away at me, and they affect my mood, my performance, even my appetite. Even on the other side of this computer screen, I’m a living, breathing human, just like you. But why do we do this to ourselves? In theory, it’s so simple – to just “let it gooooo” (in the words of Frozen). Get rid of the things (negative thoughts, toxic people, hurtful comments, bad days, the person who gave you the finger this morning on I-95) that are dragging you down, don’t give time to those things that don’t make you feel stellar about yourself. Life seems too short to waste even a minute of your time not cultivating something beautiful. Yes, it sounds like something that should be written in flowery cursive in motivational quote on Instagram, but seriously – we should all be living our lives beautifully. Not hanging onto the things that eat away at us. It’s not often that we’re given a chance to redo anything, so if you’re offered the opportunity to improve your moment even in the slightest, it’s worth taking a chance. March forward with determination, knowing that you did your best to eliminate that little piece of (…it’s so tempting to say “poop” here..) negativity from your life. We could all learn a lesson from my 16 month old nephew E: say “bye, poop!” to those things that are holding you back from living your best life. Think of how much lighter we would all feel if we let go.
I don’t usually go all “Dear Diary” on Bubbles and Booyah, but I felt it was an important thought to share. It’s sometimes easy to accept things as they are (even if they suck) instead of consciously choosing something better. It’s not always instant, sometimes it takes time, but it’s always totally worth it in the end.
So, bye poop.
Hope you all have fantastic Mondays and here’s to the start of a great week!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
