Letting Go, Moving On.
I've let go of a few ongoing commitments and involvements lately. I found so much of my time was sucked into reading the multiple different group chats, the organization of duties, the learning curve of new skills (in one case, hello sound engineering!) that there was no longer any enjoyment in any of it. I felt pressure and stress and my attention was scattered and completely unfocussed.
I also suffered from an ongoing resentment against myself for in my desire to keep stimulated and involved neither was happening.
Sometimes the need for evaluation of time spent needs to be thoroughly examined. Which I did.
As I age I am discovering that decisions need to be made quickly. How the hell do I know what time I have left?
So I dropped three outside involvements in my life. Without any regrets. And no agonizing. Clean, clear.
I'm now dedicating time to things that motivate me further, like my book launch tomorrow which is thrilling me no end as I put together a playlist for the background music, a draw for a free book, intros of the presenters and readers, my wee talk beforehand, the greeting of old friends, the chat, the gratitude, my own reading.
Orders are exceeding all expectations and we're going into a second printing and scheduling more signings around the city.
Life is good.
What's been your experiences with letting go and moving on?
