L: Learning (to let go)

April 14, 2017

Lately I’ve realised I’m slowly learning to let go of things not in my control. One of the guided meditations I do has a set of affirmations in the end, and one of them says – ‘I make plans, but I try to remain flexible and open to the surprises that life has in store for me.’ 

When I heard it the first time, I felt like it was meant for me. Because I really do have a hard time letting go if things don’t go to plan and can’t help but feel frustrated and angry. 

Maybe repeating this affirmation each morning has helped, maybe it is my meditation habit in general, but I am learning to let go. I’m learning to move on if I can’t manage to do as much work (read sketching, trying to build a portfolio currently) as I’ve planned to, due to reasons not in my control. I’m learning to relax if I miss gym or a workout once in a while. I’m learning that it’s okay if I don’t feel upto cooking and order in out of turn once in a while. I’ve also made peace with the fact that maybe I’m not always going to have a house that’s clutter-free, because I hate cleaning and I’m not the best at keeping clutter out in the first place. 

Maybe, just maybe I’m growing up.
