I tend not to blog about things that are particularly personal or emotional – things that get under my skin. For the most part, I think a blog is best kept a little like everyday life – lighthearted, enjoyable, focusing on the positives and minimising or ignoring the negatives.
And I like to reserve this space for happy memories, thoughts and moments.
The reality is, we all have emotional stuff we have to deal with. I just prefer not to write about it.
But then, there’s moments when you need to write about a feeling so you can shake it off.
So here’s the feeling I need to shake off.
Sometimes I wonder if people realise how much I give of myself.
How much I gave of myself: wholeheartedly, openly and honestly.
It would be nice to get acknowledgement for that, some appreciation, I suppose.
Sometimes just a simple acknowledgement can help us move on.
To shake off that feeling, once and for all.
But if acknowledgement and appreciation don’t come, then there’s only one solution. Oh yes, I know there’s only one other option. The option that puts the onus back on me.
To make the conscious decision to move on and let go.
So, as I have no other choice, here’s to letting go…and relishing what’s worthwhile, valuable and most important in life.
