My Let It Go List
Friday, January 01, 2010
I'm worked on my Let-It-Go list yesterday ... much shorter than the Gratitude List I sort of composed in my head on Wednesday. I thought New Year's Eve, with a once in a blue moon eclipse, would be a good time to think of things I would like to flush out of my life. There aren't too many of them, but these things all trip me up and keep me from doing the things I want to do – and doing the things I might want to do when I think of them.
So what would I like to let go of this year?
1.Unhealthful food - in unhealthful proportions
2.My sedentary body and it's accompanying aches 3.Grumbling while doing housework
4.Multi-tasking and it's evil twin...
6.The mother of #4 & 5 ... Frittering away my time slash Procrastinating
So. Hmm. Well. That's a bigger list than I thought. In fact – if I were to really let all those things go out of my life – why – I'd be just about perfect.
Still and all – these are the things I want out of my life, in no particular order. I am not going to talk about whether a person can let go of these self defeating traits or if resolutions towards that end are GOOD, because they spur you even if only for a little while, or BAD, because if you stop trying you feel like a looser, or INDIFFERENT because ... what difference does it make anyway? I'm just stating that I would like these things to flow away from me and go live somewhere else – preferably at the bottom of the ocean.
What I will say is that just thinking about these defeatist behaviors flowing away from me makes me feel lighter, cleaner, somehow.
