What if… there was no what if?

Prompt: Let Go!  

What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why? (Author: Alice Bradley)

~~~~~~~~~

This year I said goodbye to the idea of needing a conclusion to every situation.  I let go of the “What if?”

Life is too short to “fast forward” only to find out the ending before the moment even begins.  I used to get so caught up in “needing to know” that I forgot about being alive.  My executive structure has always penetrated my entire world. 

If there were dinner plans next weekend I’d (normally) be thinking about what would happen after dinner, *what if* I don’t get invited back?  

A business trip on the books…oh! *what if* I schedule a massage when I return? 

You get the point… right? 

As I stepped foot into 2010 I let go of the futuristic *what if’s?* and made a solid focus on enjoying each moment.  Being present in the moment, as I’ve learned, is really where the gifts of life come from.  Don’t get me wrong, in times of stress or heavy workloads  those *what if’s* come around, but now I breathe and *LET GO!*

What can you let go of?
