Last few days I had been avoiding people (even my family..!!!) because there was something that was bothering me a lot. I spent all my time the last few days waiting for a chance or the break that would make it okay. But there was always some reason not to feel good and it was hard at the end of the day.
I needed some distraction or a beautiful release. So finally I decided to call up my friend because I thought she would make it easy for me (its always good to talk to friends when you are upset), she could make me feel empty and weightless :) :)
And Trust me... she had a mantra to deal with things which are beyond our control.
"Let it be" she says.
She offered no advice, she did not attempt to give suggestions and she did not even pass judgements about whether I was doing the right thing or whether something else ought to have been done. She did not sympathise and did not say "Life is unfair" or that the other person was wrong or that it is a bummer.
She just listened patiently instead and she said, "Let it be."
And you know what? Surprisingly it worked...!!!
So, the next time, when things go wrong, do not send out negativity into the universe.
Just let it be.
Breathe deeply. Relax. Drink a glass of water (or hot chocolate). Go to a place which fills you with peace and comfort. Call a friend who exudes positivity.
But mostly, Just let it be :) :)
