"Let that shit go" is a phrase I was repeating in my mind tonight at the gym. It came up as I was trying to release stress from this holiday week. Truth be told, I did not go to Thanksgiving dinner with my family. One of my family members was being verbally abusive with me, and I had to say no to being around that. It was an unfortunate situation all around, and it led to a much bigger situation with more people that I wish would just go away... but alas, family conflict rarely resolves in the timeframe we want it to.
There's not much about this I can control, other than my own feelings. And I don't want to feel this anxiety and stress anymore. So as I sat in the spa, breathing deep, trying to get the knot in my stomach to release, a phrase printed on the cover of an old journal kept repeating in my mind.
Let that shit go.
This, of course, is one of those things that's easier said than done. Knowing I want to let it go isn't quiet the same as actually letting it go. But just acknowledging I want this, rather than the repeating cycle of anxious thoughts, helped me to feel a little lighter.
If you've had a stressful week (or month, or year, or anything) as well, then I hope this meditation helps. This is a special bonus Saturday meditation - I will return to posting meditations Mon-Fri next week.
