I recently read somewhere...”One of the simplest ways to stay happy is to let go of all the things that make you sad.”
We all know this, right? It’s so much easier said than done.
What if the things that are making you sad can’t be let go?
It makes me sad when I think of those less fortunate. If I just let that go how is that being helpful? I can however think of small ways to help. Last year I bought gloves to hand out to any cold hands that took the offer.
What about that we can’t change the fact that people die and leave this earth. We can, however, know that the person that passed on wouldn’t want us to be sad and dwell on his/her death.
Sometimes relationships end and that makes us sad, too. Try not thinking about someone you’ve loved and lived with for the majority of your lifetime. The reality is that person has spent more days with you than the family he/she was born into ever will.
So, yes, it’s easy to SAY let go of things that make us sad but the reality is, we can’t always do that.
So, do something about what makes you sad when you can and if you can’t let go; perhaps you CAN just let it be.
