Crazy Perfect Life: Just Let It Go

Let it go.

Three simple words that are easier said than done.

Believe me. I get it.

Are you feeling stressed? Are you agitated, annoyed or overwhelmed about a particular situation in your life? If you are, it might be time to just let it go.


Holding on to negative thoughts isn’t doing you any good.

Whatever you have going on in your life that you find particularly bothersome, try to make peace with it and move on. Put it behind you. I’ll tell you a little secret: constantly obsessing about it and continuously talking or complaining about it doesn’t help. In fact, it makes things worse. I promise you.

Don’t hang on to negative energy, replay conversations over and over again in your mind, or complain about what you feel has gone wrong in your life.

Did you handle something poorly? Did a friend say something rude? Did you break your favorite dish? It isn’t hard to find things each day that could easily annoy you, if you allow yourself to go there. Try not to let yourself go there, especially if there isn’t anything you can do about it.

Most of the time, when we experience a negative situation, we don’t just live it once. We replay it over and over again in our minds. Maybe we think if we keep obsessing about it, the outcome will change. Perhaps it’s our way of trying to control something we don’t like.

It doesn’t help to continuously complain or talk about something that has happened. It just keeps whatever it is top of mind, causes you to fill your head with negativity and brings you down.

The past is the past. What has happened has happened. Accept it and make peace with it.

You’ll be happier, calmer, less annoyed and more fun to be around. If you’re in a good mood, stay in a good mood by filling your mind with positive thoughts. If you’re in a bad mood about something that has happened, do yourself a favor and let it go. Life is too short to spend time on things we can’t change. Open your eyes to all the beauty and goodness that surrounds you and enjoy the here and now.

Find meaning each day,
