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.
