Day 85 - Let It Go

Monday, October 26, 2015

When you're upset or going through a difficult situation, decide how long you want to hold on to your emotions. Pick a time limit, then at the end of that time, mentally send the negative emotions out of your body, then watch them drift away.

This has been something that I have done all the time. I don't let past things that happen impact what is going on currently. Thinking about past events does not help with what is going on.
