I'm entering 2010 with the resolution to LET IT GO as my daily mantra.
Instead of holding on to anger, resentment, fear, anxious thoughts and all other forms of negativity, I'm reminding myself to let them go. As soon as I realize that I'm carrying the tension that results from harboring unhealthy emotions that result from negative thinking, I remember to LET IT GO.
As I practice my resolution, I sense that eventually I may often stop reacting negatively in the first place and, thus, I won't have the need to LET IT GO.
Perhaps my effective use of this technique has something to do with my age and the many years I've been trying to live without unnecessary stress. The bottom line remains certain, that is, I definitely feel more in control of my emotions than ever before.
I'm looking forward to a brighter future.
