I'm sure most of us try to practise this every day but I found this a really helpful reminder of the different types of ideas and emotions we try to hold on to.
I could do with reading through this article about once a month to remind me to let go of those things I can't do anything about. Perfection in particular! I'm sure we all battle this with our time-poor lives.
One thing I can thoroughly recommend - let go of grudges and the past.
I've been very upset by relationship break-ups in the past. I've felt let down used or disappointed at different times. But those were emotions and, however anybody else behaved - I don't want to continue being angry or bitter about their behaviour. That's their shout.
I choose to be happy. Or at least - I choose to try to be happy! And that certainly doesn't involve being angry at someone else's foolishness. I always end up forgiving. Partly because I'm lazy and I don't have the energy for all that drama.
But partly because I believe in the present and in the future and the ongoing potential for being happy, finding enjoyment in life and, if you would like, meeting someone else exciting.
If anyone has treated you badly in the past then be very grateful that's in the past.
