Trying Too Hard

Learning to Let Go,

I thought I was working hard, but it was more like trying way too hard to make things happen! I was frustrated and disappointed in myself when things did not happen in my favor. I stressed about getting to where I thought I wanted to be in my life. I really wanted to control the outcome too. That is one tall order to live up to and it is exhausting!

How could I stop trying and start living my life instead? I am the type of person that does not really go with the flow and that does not give in or up easily either. How could I stop dwelling on what was not working and focus on what was going well in my life? I knew I needed a change, but of what kind and magnitude.

Then when I started getting with the program I experienced a few life changes and some for the better too! I wanted to enjoy my life more and stop being so wrapped up in the overall crazy, busyness. I wanted to be happy with where I was, what I was doing and what I did have in my life! I needed less doing and action and more being and moving forward in my life.

Learning . . . Discovering . . . Growing

Finding That Release,

Part of this process was acknowledging my past as my past and to leave it in the past! I want to take the memories and move on. I think about being a photographer and having to tell myself to put the camera down and just enjoy myself. I need that connection and interaction to what is happening as well as being an active player in it too!

Another part of this process was to not feed into my fears and instead tap into the love I have for myself! It is such a healthier mindset and better for your whole being too. I need to make sure my hopes and dreams have reasonable expectations in order to achieve what I do want in my life. I need to tap into my inner strengths and courage as well as find that motivation and drive to go after what I want too.

The best life lesson I am learning is to let go of thinking it matters and relinquish the control it has over you! I have to accept that some things are just out of my control and deal with it. I need to change my perspective from having a “happy ending” to just living the life I already have! I am one lucky person when it comes to living the life I do have and wanting more of it!
