Let It Go
Let It Go ❄. Let it go ❄, let it go ❄. We have all seen the movie and heard the song but how many times do we really internalize this advice and let things go?
We can all agree that our jobs, our family, and our friends cause us stress at times and things comes up that we hold on to and do not let go. My brilliant wife Tashawna Rodwell reminds me all the time that I just need to let things go. We are not in control of other people’s thoughts, feelings, judgments, and decisions. However, when we lose that control, we do everything we can to feel like we are in control.
Why do we do this? A lot of times we are looking out for the best interest of our team, our family, our friends and yes even ourselves. We feel like we fail these people (and ourselves) if we are not able to get our way. We feel that our way is the best way.
The past few weeks I have been more present and kinder to myself and have let things go that I have no control over. And guess what, I have been feeling happy and energized. The next time you are stressing out over something, ask yourself if you can just let it go. “It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small and the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all.” #letitgo #mentalhealth
