Letting go and starting fresh

I have changed tactics a little recently with my million dollar challenge and my life. I decided to drop some projects I no longer felt motivated or enthusiastic about. I had been holding off letting go of them because of the time, effort and money I had put into them but I felt they had run their course.

So I let them go.

As soon as they were out of my life it was amazing how relieved and refreshed I felt. Even though they were no longer really taking up my time, they were obviously weighing on my mind and with them gone and the decision made to not focus on them anymore I felt so much lighter.

What is even more interesting is that the very next day I received emails for 3 opportunities I had been longing for, but given up on. Now I have 3 new projects that require less effort, are more exciting to me and are not weighing me down. I think long term these projects are much more beneficial.

It is amazing to see how when you let go of something you feel is dragging you down, just how easy it is for better things to come into your life. There is only so much room in your life for things and if it is taken up by negative things, or stuff that doesn't interest you there is not really any room for good stuff to come into your life.

Have you looked at your life lately and thought if there was something that you might need to remove to lighten your load?

  1. There are probably a billion things that I could remove to lighten my life's load, but the main thing is probably my school. I can't wait until I can graduate in August so I can stop thinking about homework and stuff.

  2. Yup, paid employment.

    Turns out not dying and a future for my boy trumps money in the bank.

    Who knew?

  4. You are spot on with this post. When you have "something" that needs to be done, your subconscious keeps it in the top of your mind, no matter how you try to get it stuffed down. Just finished a book that I've been working on for months, and felt that same "AHH" moment:)
