[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] I'm so much prettier when I let it go, let it go

I'm so much prettier when I let it go, let it go I'm just so beautiful when I let it go, let it go I'm just, I'm so much prettier When I let it go, let it go, I'm so beautiful When I let it go, let it go,
let it go Jill Scott

Note to self: Let it go When the decision you made did not get you to where you thought you out to
be- let it go When you didn't get the job or promotion that you thought would make your
life all worth it- let it go When the guy you thought was a good one stops talking like you, just like
that - let it go When you put your foot in your mouth at an important event - let it go You're just so much more beautiful when you let it go

When your co-worker says something you believe is totally insensitive - let
it go When you hire cleaners and they break your faucet while cleaning the
bathroom- let it go When the cash you need to pay your bills was spent on something else and
you are worried that you have little or no cash until the next gig - let it
go You're so much prettier when you let it go

Letting it go doesn't mean not dealing with it, ignoring it or putting it
out of sight, it is loving yourself out of the situation, showing
compassion to yourself and not worrying about how you look especially to
other people. It means acknowledgement, acceptance and movement
towards..... love... love of self, love of life and all the messages it is
sending you. Don't stay stuck there, take the message and act, ask - what
are you telling me? then pay attention to the response
