Letting Go...

Kyra's "Letting Go" Blog Hop
What have you let go? Said farewell, adios, later 'gater to?

We've all had to say good-byes that break our hearts. I could depress the crap out you with tearful farewells of my past...but it's Monday, and honestly, I don't need that on this chilly, gray day.

No, I'm going to tell you about a farewell that brought me nothing but peace.

Long ago, in a galaxy not far away, I gave up giving a damn.

Teen angst and youthful insecurity? Hasta la vista.

Nail biting worry that people won't like me or will judge me by the wrong measure? Screw it.

You want to judge me without knowing me...that's your fail, not mine.

I'm me.

I'm what God made me, nothing more, nothing less.

On my best day, I am a flawed bit of goofy human...and so are you...and I love you for that.

Now. Go be you and have an awesome day. :)

  3. This post reminds me of the first time I was able to walk past a group of teenagers and not care that I was wearing something not entirely trendy. I was about 30, but I did it!

    This is an inspiring post :-)

    1. Isn't it liberating? I choose what I like and if people want to laugh...well I guess I made them smile and that's a good thing. :)

    1. I think you did too. Your blue eyed gal needed to learn she didn't need to be the smartest or the prettiest to be valued.

  5. This is FANTASTIC! If I only could have gotten to that point sooner in my life, things probably would have gone a lot better for me. In truth, I still struggle with this. Good post.

    1. I have my moments...we all have our moments, but the me of today vs. the me of yesterday? She's got a whole lot more comfort in the skin she's in...maybe because it's a bit stretched out and broken in. :)

  9. It's so true. Some years ago I thought it's the most important that people like me and so I tried lots of things to fit to a group. Now I know that I was wrong because when I don't like me, how could anyone else? And only to be someone for someone else is never the right solution. Be who you are and don't let anyone change you, because everyone is perfect just the way he/she is.

  17. Fantastic post.

    I love how the older I get the less I care about what others think. I've let go of some toxic feelings and people over the years because of my changing attitude.

    1. My heart breaks for you. I was lucky enough to have my dad until I was 41. Forever wouldn't have been enough time, but I got a lot more than other people get. And I comfort myself with the knowledge that I have a special angel watching over me and I believe that one day I will get to hug him again.
