One thing I’ve really tried to work on in the past few months is letting go of things that no longer serve me or that I no longer enjoy. Slowly but surely, I’ve been doing my best. Some things are easier to let go than others, of course, but I’m trying.
Over the last few weeks, I decided to really kick that into high gear and I’m so glad. I’m really taking inventory of what I have and what I’m doing in my life to see if it aligns with me anymore. Not surprisingly, a lot of things are getting kicked to the curb for me.
Here are a few of the things I’ve stopped doing recently that made me happier:
— I cancelled my CoSchedule account. I’ve been an avid CoSchedule user for a few years now for social media management for my blog, but recently I started to feel like it just wasn’t a good fit for me anymore. I would feel guilty for not taking advantage of the different features or if I missed scheduling posts for a few days. I think the tool works just fine for social media management. It just wasn’t for me anymore, so I finally did something about it.
— I stopped using the planner I mentioned in my favorites post last month. Yep. I felt super guilty about it because I did love it for the first month or so. It was a great starting point in my mindfulness and self-development journey, but I outgrew it. I wanted to keep using it, especially since I had just mentioned how much I loved it, but I knew my heart wasn’t in it anymore. So I stopped using it!
— I unsubscribed from a lot of newsletters and email lists. I feel like this is something I’ve been slowly working on for years basically, but like I said, I really kicked into high gear lately. There were some newsletters I was subscribed to that I felt guilty about unsubscribing from, but I just wasn’t getting value from them anymore and they were cluttering my inbox. Not anymore!
— I stopped being afraid of expressing my true self. I read a book about psychic development, which at first made me worry about what others might think. But then I realized that if other people don’t like it, they don’t have to read it.
— I stopped being afraid of starting a Facebook group. I always knew I wanted to foster a little community of awesome ladies who want to grow and connect, but my fear was holding me back for years. If it flops, who cares? I’m just trying to follow my intuition, and so far, I’m really happy and proud of The Beyoutiful Tribe.
