Letting Go

Day 30, Thursday: React to this term: Letting Go

You cannot change other people, you can only change your reaction. My parents and my husband have taught me this more than they realize. My mom used to repeat “you can only change your own reaction” all the time growing up. (She also used to say, don’t do anything you wouldn’t want on the front page of the newspaper.)

I still care too much about what other people think, but I’ve learn to react better and set up boundaries. I’m still not very great about saying, “no” and still try to do everything for everyone, but I am trying……….

On the plus side, I have a best girl friend that I’ve been able to confide in since I was 11. She gets my family. I get hers. IMG_2100 We have a lot of fun together IMG_2101 and we just spent a long weekend together on Whidbey Island with our boys. IMG_1923IMG_1861
