Day 5 Prompt – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
I didn’t really let anyone go this year. Most of the people I needed to get rid of were let go in 2009, but I did let go of the following:
MY HAIR – My locs are gone… It was time to evolve & change so I let them go.
MY IDEALISM – I matured a lot this year. There were several experiences that let me see the best and the worst in people and because of it I have a much more realistic outlook on people. Prior to this year, it was easy for me to be taken advantage of and walked over but now I’m a bit more assertive, a lot more outspoken and a lot less naive.
MY GUILT – Prior to this year, I had a hard time “saying no.” This year I spent a lot of time shedding the guilt that others would cause me for not doing what they wanted me to do. Now, if something does not fit in with my goals/plans, I turn it down and “keep it moving.”
So this year I let go of my younger self. In life, I feel like we’re always shifting gears and shooting to new heights. This year, I definitely exited one atmosphere and entered another and the shell of my old self fell back to earth.
