Is optional. I get it, life isn’t always the easiest. Let’s make it easier by treating ourselves just a little better. Setting appropriate boundaries is a game-changer. Boundaries with others and self. Yes, self.
First, get out of your head, at least in ways that bring oneself to lower vibrational thoughts and feelings. We think tens and thousands of thoughts daily – definite overload.
I know it’s not the easiest. I do it too – get in my head. I have four placements in Virgo and boy, I cannot not try to be a perfectionist. Insanity is what that is.
The other morning at the gym I found myself once again listening to this headbanging music where you can’t even hear the words. I’m like who listens to this *%#! at 6 in the morning. Seriously, hurt my head.
For the past three months, I have complained to myself at least three to four times about the music and how I would call the manager. Normally, I just focus on the workout and tune it out. So, the other morning, I was done. I muttered those familiar words and said to myself, ‘No, go ask the person at the desk to change the music.’ Guess what? He said music is by request. There’s my wake-up call. Granted it’s not that big of a deal, but I could’ve avoided the whole situation by speaking up, ultimately letting it go. Thursday morning, I walked into the gym and was met with music to my ears, peacefulness. Incidentally, earbuds are a no for me.
Other scenarios may include twice thinking situations such as breaking up with your significant other, talking with a friend about something that bothers you, making a stand for or against something – should’ve, would’ve, could’ve.
Have I mentioned that my grandson will be 2 in a couple of months? He’s such a love. However, when he doesn’t want to nap, it can get a little tricky. One day recently, I finally had enough, got up and said, ‘I’m done.’
Yeah, right I’m grandma. I got up and went to the restroom. He followed crying. I felt so bad but kept it together. I said, ‘Let’s go, now.’ He was out like a light in minutes. Sometimes, I nap with him. This time I sneaked out. I was outdoors when he awakened, crying at his bedroom door. Daddy, who works from home, came to the rescue. I was heartbroken because I wasn’t there. It bothered me for a day or so. Finally, I said something to my daughter, and she said, ‘He’s 2 mom; he’s already forgotten it.’ Silly me. Of course, he had.
Again, these are tiny little things, but they add up. Take notice of what your thoughts are and then determine if they are needed or not. Let things go. It’s OK to live in the moment. Of course, we need to schedule some things in the future. However, let go of the past. Remember only the lessons learned and move forward.
Let It Go!
