Memoirs: The Art of Letting Go

I told myself this year to learn to let things go and so far I think I’m doing well. I am no longer wasting time by dwelling on the what ifs and the reactions to situations long gone by replaying them in my head or discussing them with friends. There is nothing worse than wasted time, especially when life is short, channel your efforts into something else.

Things are trivial
Will the situation you’re in now matter in a months, years or ten years time?

Reflect, learn from it and move on.

I was in a situation a few months ago, which, I won’t delve into much, but I realised how petty I could be if I wanted to. I took time before I reacted, reflected, pressed send and realised you know what… it’s really not that deep. In the long-run, this won’t matter, so I let it go. Now, I look back and I’m proud of myself for not reacting on pure emotion in the heat of the moment.
Forgive and forget?
Sometimes letting go is letting go to the person, place or thing that’s hurting you. That ‘grudge’ you have is your mind telling you to let go. So, if your life feels better without it, let it go.

Time is my answer to letting go. What is yours?

    Letting go is so difficult, but I definitely agree with you that time does help. I love the flow of this post and how delicately it is written, as letting go can be a very difficult subject. It can mean so many things to different people. I have found myself also being petty at times, and then I realize how much energy I am wasting, and how much negativity is filling my life when I am that way….letting go is so healthy and refreshing. Thank you for your post =)

    Love this! I wish I were this strong last year. So many troubles that I could’ve avoided but, I’m just now starting to become the best version of myself.

About Me

Welcome to my little space on the internet, known as Memoirs and Musings. I’m Char, short for Charlotte and my blog/website/diary is dedicated to documenting my Memoirs and Musings, hence the name. I wouldn’t say I was your ‘typical’ blogger either. I don’t care about getting the perfect flatlay or feeling bad for not posting, I just enjoy writing. If you’ve made it this far, thank you for reading. Anyway, I love to travel, indulge in a glass of white wine, when plans are cancelled and purchase overpriced make up.  I guess that’s me in a nutshell, trying to figure out this thing called life, have fun and never lose sight.
