Letting Go

Wow I can't believe it's just over a week until Christmas and two weeks until the end of the year! Where the heck did 2014 go?

As the year comes to a close I've been looking back at my 2014 goals and thinking about what I want my 2015 to be like. And honestly, lately, I've felt myself coming up a little short. With my recent injury and all my efforts to make friends, I definitely haven't checked everything off my list (or even made a December monthly goals list. Oops).

But then I saw this article on Facebook and I realized that, while goals have kept me focused on moving forward in the past, maybe what I really need to focus on right now is letting go.

My favorite yoga instructor always tells us to stop thinking about what we "should do" and to just focus on what we "can do" right here, right now. To view how or even if we take each pose as one choice that we own and not some big reflection of our fitness, flexibility, or self worth.

As I move into 2015 I want to apply these lessons to my life off the mat. To have less expectations and more trust, and to let go of the need to have it all figured out.

This is definitely not going to be easy for my competitive, goal-oriented self, and I haven't exactly figured out how to work towards this yet, but I'm sure going to try!

Q: What things do you want to let go of as you move into 2015? How do you give yourself a break?

Now on to the party!

  2. This is a great way to approach the new year. I certainly could learn how to do a better job of letting things go. My biggest way of letting go is that next year I'm not going to obsess over my race training. I don't want to carry the doubt and stress that so often holds me back! #wowlinkup

  4. That's along the lines of the #WYCWYC movement...what you can when you can. I've let go of the 130 lb goal weight and moved it to 140 lbs.

  7. Very good poignant question. In 2015 I want to be more spontaneous yet disciplined with my workouts to reach my ultimate goal. I know that sounds like an oxymoron but that is what I want.
