If I had a dollar for every time I’ve heard this in the past week…
Are any of you fans of Ugly Betty? I hope not, they just showed the series finale. Anyhoo, The Husband and I were watching it and one character said to another:
“You can go ahead and un-clinch everything.” She was just telling her to relax. Let go of all the worry. Breathe.
For some reason, we cracked up. After I laughed a second I felt The Husband’s eyes on me.
“What?” I snapped.
“Oh, I’m going to use that on you! Sometimes you really need to un-clinch!”
It’s true. I was born on the edge of a razor people.
I find letting go really difficult. Even when life brings good things and I start to let down my guard and breathe them in, I fight a feeling of guilt. A feeling that I shouldn’t be letting go. There are things to worry about after all…
So I’m making an effort to let go at least once every day.
To run. (Of course this lasts only for a moment)
To dance. (alone, with the shades down and the door closed)
To sit in stillness and just be.
Wondered if any of you needed a reminder today?
Love~smooches~and prayers for your joy to be full
