making other plans", so says our friend, John Lennon.
I read through some of my reverb11 posts and they make me sad and happy.
Happy and sad. Wistful and lustful and disappointed in myself.
Today's prompt from Meredith at Cultivate12:
Letting Go: What do you need to let go of to cultivate your best life in 2013?
I need to let go of any plans or expectations or ideas or hopes or dreams or need for any particular outcome in 2013, especially if it involves anyone else besides myself. I can take responsibility for myself but for others, I cannot.
Clear Communication is so critical to living a fulfilling, passionate life. I need to let go of thinking other people are communicating honestly or in a way I can understand. I may ask for restatement, I may reflect what I heard and ask for clarification, but if people are going to be dishonest, that’s that. I need to let go of anger or worry or hurt because those I am communicating with are positional, or angry, or don’t understand ME yet don’t ask for clarification so we muddle around in a vat of hurt and misunderstanding.
I need to let go of that vat, toss it over the edge and let it evaporate away…. Go to the great shredder in the sky to be made into something useful.
I need to let go of how my face used to look.
I need to let go of the need to understand others’ silences.
I need to let go of the hurt I feel from others’ silences.
I need to let go of what was, what happened and what I made any of that mean.Follow me on Twitter: @juliejordanscot
