Letting Go of What If’s…

“Just keep swimming.” – Dori, Finding Nemo

I found Beattie’s book. It was on my chair in plain sight. Whatever.

Timely, too, that I opened it up. On the last day of May, she writes, “‘What if’s’ can make us crazy… [make us wonder] whether we can trust ourselves…”

I do the “what if” game all of the time. But, I’m trying to let it go. I find that it’s a very fine line between not caring about the decisions I make as an excuse to do things I shouldn’t do, and to not worry and trust myself.

I told my sister yesterday that I was selling all of my stuff, and she seemed genuinely surprised. But here is the biggest obstacle about moving to me: I need to get rid of my stuff. Granted, I’ve only sold three things so some of this has to go with me; however, I’m truly looking at this as a fresh start. I need to get rid of the silent fear that I am not able to take care of myself.

Now, don’t be alarmed, you won’t see me on “Hoarders” or anything like that, but I just think it would be nice to have things that don’t have much attached to them, or that aren’t things that I’ve had since I was a teenager.

Maybe it’s materialistic, but I find new(er) things to be considered a sign of adulthood. Which is weird, I know, I’ve been living on my own since I was 23 (I’m not counting college; you’re not an adult in college, no matter what lies you told your parents). I’ve always felt, though, that something else was just ahead, and so I’ve never really felt comfortable; I’ve always waited for whatever it was that I thought should or was going to happen.

Over the past 6 months or so, I’ve gotten better, but I really think this is a good decision. I’m frantic still, at times, but I’m also really excited for what this all means. The next month will be hectic, but I think if I can stay focused, I can get so much accomplished and just keep going with it.

    First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question that I’d like
    to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a
    difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
    I truly do enjoy writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints?
    Many thanks!

    Hey would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a hard time making a
    decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and
    I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
