Holding onto Worry

Lately I’ve been clinging to feelings and thoughts that should have faded away by now. It’s hard to let go of something you clung so dearly to for so long. Whether it be something that’s good for you or something that’s eating at you, we hold onto things so tight.

Emotional state: medium

Mental state: (I hate math)

I’ve had some pretty dark thoughts in the past few days, but ya know what? I’ve pushed through them. The worst part is over. Sometimes you just need to let go of whatever is bringing you down.

Even if that means making major changes in your life. I used to think that life was just day to day, but it’s more than that. We’re all living our lives the best way we know how and we’re doing it with what we have.

There’s a quote by Theodore Roosevelt that I really love: “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”

It’s always resonated with me because I wasn’t born into a large sum of money. I’ve never visited countries around the world (yet.) But the things I’ve wanted to do in life, so far, have been possible because I acknowledged my situation and moved forward with what I have, and where I am. It’s not always easy but that just means it’s going to be worth it once you get to where you want to be.

But by moving forward, we have to let go of the things holding us back. These things can be people, feelings, places, and things you feel completely attached to like security, money, or just being comfortable. They say you can’t grow when you’re comfortable, and it’s true. Not that we don’t deserve breaks. Take all the breaks you need! But sometimes you need to shed your old skin.

That’s what I did this past week. I saw things in an entirely new light and realized that change needed to happen. I let go of the things that bothered me and set new goals for myself. Some of them I’ve been wanting to do, others I have incorporated entirely for a new outlook.

My heart is open to new love & light and yours should be too. 🙂

Blessed Be )0(
