Chapter 3: Letting Go
I look at each year as a book of 12 chapters. Chapter 1 ( January) I focused on approaching the new year, chapter 2 (February) was on self-care ( if you haven't had the chance to check out my blog post from January and February, go give it a read ). So, as I begin Chapter 3 the main focus for me this month is letting go.
After finding myself not taking the time out for self-care, followed by a series of events where I became too overwhelmed; is when I came to the realization, I'm too hard on myself. So, as February comes to an end, I will take each day with ease. And when I start to feel overwhelmed, I will remind myself to make it through the current day first, without trying to map out my whole life within a day.
Letting go for me is not allowing myself to overthink, and stress over every step of my day. I'm no stranger to pre-planning, which is useful to a certain extent, but also exhausting when things don't go as planned. Thus, leading me into an overwhelming spiral of self-doubt, but most importantly the realization that I need to take things with ease, and just let go. The most fun moments in my life were when I wasn't entirely in control, and lived in the moment.
Furthermore, as I enter a new month, I've come to terms that sometimes my chapter will be rewritten halfway through its course, or it may go accordingly. But for now, I expect the unexpected and will just let go.
