What do I need to let go of?

There is a lot of things I need to let go of but the main thing I need to let go of is things I cannot control. I am a very controlling person of my things and how things go when it comes down to the things I love. I have to be on top of it all because I feel like if I’m not, I will lose it and I don’t want to. 

But as I got older and life goes on, I am beginning to learn that no matter how much it may pain you, there are things you cannot control. You just have to be grateful for the situation you are in and keep it moving until it gets better. For me, I see it as a motivational thing. I dislike it so much, that I have to do and be better to change it. That’s just it. 


Another thing I need to let go of are sweating the small stuff. I tend to let the little things get to me and later after I calm down, I realize that it was not that big of a deal to begin with or it wasn’t my major concern. For instance, when someone gives me something as a gift, and we have a small falling out and that person wants whatever they gave me back, I get really upset, but then realize it is yes technically mine now because it was a gift but I didn’t spend my money on it so why am I making a huge fuss about it. Just give it back. Simple. 

Something else I need to let go of and is kind of a hard one is my past. Nothing bad really happened in my past, however there were a lot of mistakes made that I am still holding on to which isn’t allowing me to progress into my future. I get afraid I am going to do it again, so I either just don’t do it, or I do it half assed which isn’t fair to myself or the opportunity. I also tend to use it as an excuse to get out of doing things or why I couldn’t do something. It’s called past for a reason which is where it should stay. You live and learn and it is up to me to use that and improve my situation and now to keep making excuses for it.

6 things that makes me happy

So what makes me happy? It doesn’t take a lot to make me happy because I appreciate anything given to me so lets begin. 

Music 🎧🎼

When I listen to music, I feel like all my problems are gone and I am free. I am a millennial so yes I do tend to put my music louder than needed but I feel like I have to. It creates a more amazing experience. There is no particular song or genre that gets me hyped, I just turn on my Pandora radio and jam out like no one is watching. 

Movies 🎬🎞

When I tell you I LOVE watching movies. I have a lot of favorite movies but the ones I can always rewatch are any Marvel movies and Transformers movies. They will never get old for me. My family hates movie nights because we try to find a movie that no one has even and every list or genre Ive seen most of those movies. I get asked all the time why I love movies so much and honestly I do not know. I guess because they give me so much peace and puts me at ease after a long day. Plus I do not like commercials unless it is a TV show. Watching movies with commercials are so frustrating to me especially if it a new movies I’ve never seen. I want to know what happens next not wait after 30 commercials lol. I guess that’s why I do not like watching so many tv shows (unless its Spongebob) until the have all aired and I can binge watch. 

Dogs 🐶

I love doggies especially the little small ankle biters lol. It is so weird because when I was younger I was so scared of dogs but I having family members with dogs around me made it easier to overcome my fear and love dogs now. 

Food 🍕🍟🍗🍦

Haha, who doesn’t love food like come on. When I eat I start doing my happy dance especially if it is something I’ve been craving for a while. My favorites are hot wings, fruit, ice cream, pastries, salad, and fries. Lol, yes I know a lot of favorites and all different but I definitely enjoy them. 

Video games 🎮

It may sound weird to some, but yes I love video games and I’m a girl. I not a full on gamer girl, but I do not mind playing a game every now and then. That probably came from me frowning up with mostly boys around me. I like playing the good ol’ Mario Kart of course, killing zombies or weird creatures, racing games , and ill dab a little into basketball. And I cannot forget the little games we all play on our phones to pass time. 

My Mommy 👩🏽‍🦱

Oh mommy. My mother is the most sweetest, calmest, understanding person in the world. She sees the good in everybody and every situation. I wish I had some of that in me. Whenever I am in a bad mood and need some up lifting, I go right to my mother and can tell her any and everything without her judging me, plus putting a huge smile on my face in the end. I love my mommy 🙂

When I wake up in the morning, how do I want to feel?

Me not being a morning person to begin with, I would like to feel… well rested. I 

would like to be able to wake up in the morning and have the awesome energy to get and begin my day instead of being woken up which is a really big pet peeve of mine. 

Now don’t get me wrong. I wouldn’t mind being woken up if it is an emergency going on, but for others to completely disregard your sleep is mind blowing to me because I try to be the most quietest person when someone else is sleeping. I think that it is SO rude to just be a loud person or do things in a loud way when you know someone is asleep. And it almost makes it feel as though that person is probably doing it on purpose, even though they probably aren’t. 


I would also like to feel more happier. Getting up in the mornings is a slow process for me to get myself together, emotions wise because most nights, I do not get the proper amount of sleep to begin with and when I get up to start my day, I still feel like and wish I had more sleep time. I wish I could just wake up , not with a whole lot of energy but, more smiles because I am definitely grateful I was able to see another day, but I want my body to feel the same. 

Lastly, I would like to feel… at ease. I sometimes feel like I am in a rush to do something or get myself together when I work from home and woke up early enough to start my job on time, but idk it feel like my brain is going at 100 miles an hour and my body is trying to catch up. But it is probably because I end to overthink a lot being the introvert that I am.   :/

I know one day I will have the “perfect” morning routine once my situation gets better, so I will keep my head up and keep it moving. 

Hope you enjoyed the read. 🙂 How would you wish to feel in the morning? Comment below!
