Letting Go

Having Monday schedule on Tuesday threw me off. I kept getting times and dates mixed up and it felt weird to just have a 4 day week. Amidst all of this, I felt rather lost and I had no motivation to do my homework (I did get them done by the deadline but it took more effort than usual). I had the chance to go over to my friend’s apartment last night (originally for a snack) but ended up staying to talk for a few hours. This was probably a blessing in disguise as we ended up talking about life.

We talked about making the right decisions and how to know when to let go of things. Both of us faced the same problem, we have difficulty letting go even though we know we should. Dwelling on a problem for too long only gives a person more stress and frustration. I realized from last night that I hated to give up on things. I felt like it was a waste of all my effort and I wanted to see things through to the end even though it may be pointless.

I made a goal to myself that I would learn how to let go. And to start that, I convinced myself to let go of certain things in my life last night. This small change has already made an impact on me as I feel myself feeling less burdened.

Breathe. Let go. And remind yourself that this very moment is the only one you know you have for sure — Oprah Winfrey
