Blog Every Day in May - Letting Go

For day 30 of the Blog Every Day in May Link Up, we're supposed to write about letting go.  This subject could very easily go way too deep and way too dark for a Thursday morning blog post.  So I'll keep it short and simple.  Here are my initial thoughts on letting go:

I need to learn to let go of the what-if's and should-have's.  I spend a lot of time daydreaming about what my life COULD have been like.  If I had been a happier person, if I had been more active, if I had chased my dreams, if I had stayed in college, if I hadn't done things I won't talk about on here.  Hindsight can be such a nasty bitch.  This is something I need to let go of or it really could drive me crazy.  One thing I do to let go of this is remind myself that all those could haves/should haves might have made it so I didn't end up with Mike and that's definitely not worth it at all.

I also need to learn to let go of the past.  I need to stop beating myself up about mistakes I've made or opportunities I've missed.  I need to stop being angry at people or missing people or even just being embarrassed about things I've done.  The past is the past and I need to learn from it and then let it go.


  1. That second picture is beautufil. Anyways, back to the actual topic: The first picture speaks so well. We haev to live in the moment and stop worrying about what could have

  2. I love this! Even though in my own post, I kinda hint towards waiting till you're ready. Sometimes though, you just gotta rip that band-aid off. Either way it'll hurt in someway. Right?!
