Some people think it's holding on
that makes us strong
...sometimes it's letting go.
We hold on to so much that clutters our life and drags us down. Why? Because letting go is sometimes the hardest thing to do.
During my A-Z Commit to be Fit Challenge, I've had to focus on letting go of a lot of things.
I've let go of anger and frustration towards myself for not succeeding with my fitness goals in the past. I had a very hard time making the decision to let go of my marathon dreams (for now) and, instead, run the half marathon again this year.
I've let go of friends that were dragging me down. We all have people in our life that just aren't good for us. People that influence us to make choices that aren't always in our best interested. Friends that judge us instead of supporting us. I've learned to surround myself with people that are good for me. People that share the same goals or, at least, understand and accept mine.
I've let go of habits that work against my goals. Like Caesars. Damn it. I love me some Caesars, BUT the salt, MSG, and copious amounts of empty calories just don't work for this plan.
I've also let go of good beer and am now drinking Molson 67.
