Letting Go of Negativity

When you’re having a tough time, feeling disappointed or disillusioned, maybe angry, someone says, “just let it go,” what does that really mean? Now, this might conjure up the song “Let it Go” from the movie, Frozen!

Yet, the key is letting go of negativity that can put a dent in your day. Consider Zendaya’s take on it: “There are so many great things in life; why dwell on negativity?”*

When experiencing difficulty or anger, your motivation to move forward on your “to do” list is seriously impacted. If you can flip your thoughts away from being down to being upbeat, you create a positive and fulfilling mindset.
