Twenty Two.

Friday, June 24, 2016

We're a mere two days away from my twenty-second birthday, and I feel like birthdays always bring a sense of reflection, kinda like new year's. It's a chance for a fresh start and beginning a new chapter. Turns out I've learned a lot over the years, & the thing I wanted to focus on today is the art of letting go of the things that cannot be changed. 

Well, I guess I should say I'm in the process of learning this and probably always will be. Because, let's face it, when you've got a mind that never shuts off and a jaw that is constantly clenched, feeling out of control can be the worst thing possible. I am constantly worrying, to the point of driving myself crazy.

But I'm learning to let go.

(here's a piece of irony for ya- this is the second time I'm writing this because in the middle of the first time I ACCIDENTALLY DELETED EVERYTHING. tears were held back.)

There are so many things in this life that are beyond our control, so what's the point of focusing on them? I'd rather focus on what I can control, like my work ethic (always a work in progress) & the way I treat people. My vibe. The way I handle different situations. THOSE are real goals to set and keep your mind on. 

None of this what if stuff.

Or so I say.

SO, what should I focus on for twenty-two?

+ the things I can change & make better
+ immersing myself in the world
+ BREATHING a bit.
