Reflection for a New Year: Learn to Relax


Saw this in a blog post, by “Living the balanced life” a while a go, and her words really resonated with me (http://livingthebalancedlife.com/2012/a-letter-to-my-20-year-old-self/)

Maybe I’m still in the mood for setting resolutions for the year….or it’s just a good time to reflect and work on who you’re going to be going forward. As I work on a year of gratitude and continuing to look at how one lives fully alive, I think her words are really important.

“I encourage you to learn to relax. Learn that it is okay to not have it all together. It is okay to not have “it” figured out. You don’t have to have all your ducks in a row to be successful. You can’t control everything around you. You will exhaust yourself trying. Learn to let things happen as they will. Most of the time, it isn’t a big deal anyway, just let it go. It is tough being a control freak and it will make you miserable and push others away from you. LET IT GO.

And for heaven’s sake, stop worrying about what other people think about you! It doesn’t matter. Be yourself, the person God MADE you to be.”
