I love this pictograph from the Huffington Post on the life and death of a New Year's Resolution.
I used to make long, complicated lists of resolutions. This year, I've decided to work off of the theme of Letting Go….and whatever that happens to mean in the moment. Letting go of stress, extra weight, the piles of toys and paperwork weighing my house down, spending my time doing things I really don't want to be doing…..I'm letting it all go!
I used to be the kind of person that would say "yes" to anything that anyone asked of me. But recently, I've started saying no, when it's something I don't have time for / don't want to do. Suddenly, I have a lot more free time to do the things that I do want to do!!
Another sidebar about the "Let it Go" song from Disney's Frozen, which the kids are still obsessed with…the very last line, Elsa sings, "the snow never bothered me anyway." and we recently learned that Doodle sings it, "Nicole never bothered me anyway." This gave us a good laugh and I thought back to all the songs on the radio that I used to sing (and still sometimes sing) incorrectly.
So, here's to letting it go. Whatever that "it" is for you!
