Prompt: Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
Anger. I spent so much of 2009 being angry. There was a lot to be angry about (or at least so I thought…but it WAS a rough year). But it wasn’t making me very happy. So I needed to let it go. I found my release at the gym—working out and getting into great shape was SO much easier than being angry. Yes, I still feel angry at times…but it’s much easier to deal with now.
–I also got to let go (literally) of some extra weight I’d been carrying around for too long. —
I wasn’t very much fun for awhile. I was bitter that things in my life hadn’t turned out the way I wanted them to and I took this out on my friends and my boyfriend. After I decided to let go of the anger, I was able to work towards what I wanted in my life, rather than dwelling on what had gone wrong. I’m still doing that.
I am so much happier now! I’m headed in a good direction for my life, and I can nip anger in the bud when it starts to boomerang.
