“She took a deep breath and let go of the would’ve, should’ve and could’ves that had been weighing her down. She smiled at how lighter she felt without them. “~ Queenisms
Are you carrying a huge load these days? For many, our lives are jammed packed with what we believe are have-to things we must get done. Is that always true? Is everything on your to do list so important the consequence will be dire if it doesn’t get done? Said like that, probably not. But we put ourselves under so much pressure to multi-task to get things done immediately.
Today is a reminder to shift your thinking a bit. Perhaps, it is a good day to step back and see what you can let go. Our emotions create huge burdens.
Is there anger you can put aside?
Is there resentment and frustration to let go of and find forgiveness?
Is there a way to slow down, regroup and fill your cup so you have the energy to handle the important issues you need to?
Can you be kinder towards yourself and others?
Today’s quote speaks about the would’ve, should’ve and could’ve. We all have them weighing us down. Is there something you can put aside and replace it with down time, family time or fun time?
Less is more in every area of our lives.
A little bit each day. Start with 15 or 30 minutes of “me” time. What makes you feel good and puts a smile on your face? Is there a friend you haven’t seen in awhile or spoken to? Get together with someone to reconnect. If you can’t see each other in person right away, carve out time to pick up the phone and have a great conversation.
Lighten your load. What always proves to be true is when we let go of the burdens weighing us down, we can’t help but feel lighter in everything. We smile more. We listen more. We feel good. We have more energy. We are more available emotionally to those we care about.
So my friend, what will you do today to lighten your load?
