Let Go and Enjoy The Ride

IMG_1884

We have an app to keep track of what we eat throughout the day.  We have another to help us with our to do lists.  Hell, some of us use them to tell us when to drink water.  Or is that just me?

How about we just try to take a different approach this week.  I know it’s going to be hard not tracking everything. But you will survive.  So you ready? Just let go.  Revolutionary I know. Just let go.  I don’t want you to stick to a plan this week.  No, I didn’t say not go to work.  But don’t stick to any to do lists.  Don’t fight the day’s events.

Is there something that you have been putting off?  Something you felt wasn’t important, but you wanted to do anyway?  Do that and see what happens.

Take a long way home tonight and stop by that coffee shop you saw. Go in and have some coffee and relax.  There a book that you wanted to read, but you felt like it wasn’t productive to read it?  Read it tonight before you go to bed.

Just let go and see what happens.  I think you will find that when we do so we actually grow. We become better at being ourselves.  Try it.

What are you going to let go of today?

    It’s so hard to actually follow that advice, even though it seems so easy. I’m really trying though this summer.

      I know what you mean, Mona. But I think if we slowly ween ourselves from things it makes it easier. Have a great day! 🙂

    Technology is great, but we have to be unplugged once in a while. I completely agree with you!

    I felt my heartbreak a little when I got to “don’t stick to any to-do list.” to do list are my current obsession. I probably make one for everything. However I understood what you meant by it and I agree every now and then I should be able to let go and live a little. Tomorrow I am going to be hanging out with my friend and I think I’ll follow your advice and trash my to-do list and enjoy the day. You always give great advice and thoughtful advice.

      Thank you Jasmine. Just for today, no lists. Just relax and take it as it comes. Let me know how it goes. 🙂

    This is great. Sometimes I pressure myself so much to stick to a strict schedule to a needle point. While the things you achieve sure feels rewarding, I burn out really quickly. So there are days when I just assign myself just a few tasks a day to give myself enough time and flexibility. Much easier for the body & the soul. 🙂

      It’s sounds like you are doing the right thing! I like the approach of less is more. The less on your list leaves more opportunity to discord great things. 🙂

    Letting go can be very refreshing, I don’t share this with my Wife, however a few days I awake and say, “Today is the day, it’s all on her” she doesn’t know but that’s how I recharge my battery!
