What did you let go of today?

I am personally getting too wrapped up in forward progress and frustrated over perceived lack of it.
It is easy to forget to be grateful and to ignore progress made.
One way I provide myself kindness is by acknowledging active work of letting go.

Today, even if just for today, I let go of the obsession to comprehend reality better and faster than anyone else.
Today, even if just for today, I allow myself to simply seek to comprehend and respond to reality as I naturally do in my own imperfect way in this moment.

    I am pleasantly surprised about how I can let people go when the relationship has no more event horizon.
    It gives me a lot of peace of mind and if your mind is calm then other more auspicious situations arise.

    Learning to let go of the need for each day to go as I think it should has been a battle for me. The curse of the perfectionist :(

    Today, I let go of my goals to work again at the same level as I had done before my episode of voice hearing ten years ago. It’s been a long road of recovery, but I think I am going to have to acknowledge that my levels of concentration and focus and ability to learn on the job are not going to be that high again. I am going to have to set my sights at something more achievable, or perhaps let go of career goals altogether.
