Letting go of certain things in my life has always been a bone of contention for me. Whether it’s a relationship, an idea, a dream, or even tchotchkes from my yester-years … releasing my vise-grip hold is still a work in progress.
“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results”
- Albert Einstein
I was recently feeling pretty frustrated about a particular aspect of my life and my preoccupation with the issue was taking over way too much of my day-to-day thought process. Trying to find salvation in the midst of frustration can often feel like trying to fit a square peg into a round hole. It just doesn’t fit. That’s when I remembered there’s always a choice.
You can decide to accept the status quo or to make a change that will propel you into a better space. Sometimes it’s better to re-invent the wheel (especially when the old one is broken). Instead of doing things begrudgingly, I feel that my energy can be used more effectively to cultivate positive ideas and initiatives.
It never ceases to amaze me how simple it can be to work through a situation.
Write it out.
Break it down.
Make a choice.
(Repeat the cycle as required).
Until next time friends….
