I had this moment where I was thinking of what in my life I’ve been gripping tightly without even noticing. And I want to ask you the same thing: Are you holding onto the windshield making sure it’s not going to fly off, when in reality it’s not going anywhere?Often, we grip things we are afraid to lose.We try to control them by focusing our mental energy on them. We worry, we ruminate, and we drain ourselves of useful energythat could’ve been put towards creating a life that feels good.
The reality is what’s meant for us doesn’t need to be gripped.SAY IT LOUDER FOR THE PEOPLE IN THE BACK!
Look, here’s the thing. I love me, but sometimes I’m not kind to me. Sometimes I joke about my love handles. Sometimes I doubt my ability to do epic stuff. Sometimes I say “good” to someone saying “hi” because I anticipated they were going to say, “how are you?” instead. Face palm. So, I put together a little list to help you out with the things that I’ve learned that boost my self-love up, up, and away.
