Letting go of something or someone that no longer serves you is hard. In fact it’s Fucking hard. And emotional. And honestly there’s no fancy way to gift wrap it, it’s just plain crap. Sometimes the head and the heart don’t agree with each other and this can cause turmoil, but once you have accepted that this will be your fate you must pursue your new path.
Sometimes it’s not as dramatic as this.
Sometimes it’s not life changing, sometimes it might be as simple and straight forward as letting go of your biscuit habit or letting go of your bad mood. Whatever the level of release needed, I find belting out the infamous song ‘Let it go’ by Idina Menzel as loud as my lungs will allow in my car not only gives me goosebumps and makes me hold my head a little higher but also truly makes me believe I really can ‘rise like the break of dawn’.
This isn’t just for a blog post. I actually do this on a regular basis, at least a couple of times a week, usually on my way to work. It’s just so empowering. Now I’m not saying that listening to a Disney song will make right all the wrongs in the world but it will give you some strength. How can words like these not inspire? Especially when applied to your own life and situation.
It’s time to see what i can do,
To test the limits and break through,
No right, no wrong, no rules for me,
Let it go
And that all important line …
‘The cold never bothered me anyway’ … Basic translation – So Fuck you.
