It's Tuesday, and I've "Let Go..."

Tuesday, May 13, 2014

Did you ever reach a point in your life when you just let it all go? By that, I mean all the drama, the negativity, the worry, the frustration, the stress...you just let it go. Just like that.

For some reason, I felt like that when I woke up this morning. I felt...lighter in my soul and in my heart. I felt fresh when I woke up, energized and full of life.

I had spent some time the evening before sitting on the back steps of my house, watching the dog dutifully inspect the plants in the garden, gently sniffing and checking each one (apparently, that's her job and I was not made aware of this), and delighting in the two cats playing around the peony bush, slapping and knocking like two little brothers. My husband was working on the computer, and jazz was softly playing in the house.

This past week, I had been given my last evaluation in my job for the year. It wasn't as high as I would have liked it to be, and I was feeling quite down about it. We had also had a few extra expenses come up this month, and we're having to tighten the belt a bit tighter for a while.

But as I sat there, I thought to myself, "Numbers do not reflect my worth as a teacher or as a person, and the money situation is only temporary." Maybe it was that one thought that triggered my change of heart, I don't know...all I know is I feel a great peace.

If they don't like what I do in my job, I'll move on. If we can't pay all our bills, those people can wait. They can't get what we don't have, and as my husband says, "They can't kill us and eat us."

Everything will be okay. Letting go is okay.

    I will have to remember that one. I feel the same way this morning, lighter and blessed!

    I love your hubby's attitude!! Let go and let God. It is the motto my mother lives her life by. I learned a long time ago to not worry about the things you can't control. Makes my life SO much easier.

    Hugs to you Charlotte!!

    LOL your husband sounds like my husband! We love to worry, don't we?

    Yes - bills can be paid later and most places are happy to make arrangements. I've found that if I call and talk to someone, I've been worked with 99% of the time.

    Job - I'm a vet and leaving my first job after 2 years. I thought I'd be that vet who stays forever, since I'm not one to change jobs frequently. But here I am, about to start a new one on June 1 and scared as can be. But as my husband says - the first wasn't a good fit for ME and maybe the second won't be, either. It says nothing of me as a vet, but speaks to the fact that I want to be happy, that's all. Sometimes we have to move around a bit to find the best fit! It doesn't mean there is anything wrong with us :0)
