gratitude, the new attitude {day 7}

November is a time for thanks and, like so many, I am
participating in the 30 day challenge.

day 7: Letting go

“When you carry hard feelings your giving them free rent in your mind” I take
great pride my self growth {and everyone else’s}. Over the years, I’ve finally
learn to let go. I’ve been carrying so much baggage for so many years…
Damaging things kids said back in High School, Damaging things mother’s say,
The things boyfriends say when you’re in a fight.

I remember my turning point when my plate was full and
piling up. When this happened I was force to let go. I had no room for anything
else. At that point, I had what I call “a case of the fuck it’s”; where everything
was rolling off me easily.

I wished that it didn’t take a breaking point for me to
figure out that I needed to let go of things faster. But I’m so much happier
today because of it. There was so much I was hanging onto and so many things I
was making bigger, when I could have choose to make smaller. Today it is much
easier and I am happier to tell myself “oh, they must be having a bad day. I am
blessed” rather than “assholes”. Since learning to let go, not only am I
happier, I feel like I am a better person.

Life isn’t always going to be perfect but won’t you be happier if you
choose to focus on what you’re grateful for?
