You may have noticed that this month on Fridays my Calm My Crazy meme basically disappeared. I didn’t really intend to have it go away silently. But this month has been a little extra crazy.
I’ve been doing a lot of thinking and have been trying to reset my priorities. I’ve been very overwhelmed attempting to do everything I want to and that leads to neglecting those things to which I need to attend.
I have realized that I prefer to link up with the memes hosted by others more than I like hosting my own. So, with that realization, I decided that I needed to practice letting things go and, sadly, this meme is one thing to let go.
I created the meme to force myself to write about something good, happy, calming each week but really that only added unnecessary pressure on myself. I can reflect on the good without writing about it or I can simply be in the moment with my family and enjoy it. That seems more important to me than making myself write each Friday.
This space is a gift to myself. A place where I can freely express my thoughts and feelings. I don’t need to create rules for myself to follow as that takes some of the fun out of it.
So I will let it go. Say goodbye. And that will help to Calm My Crazy.
