Day 417 ~ #10 of My 30 Days of Truth...

My 30 Days of Truth challenge   I will admit that I changed one question and changed a few curse words... other than that the challenge is intact. 

Day 10: Someone you need to let go, or wish you didn't know.

I didn't need much time to think about this topic today.

Quite frankly, everyone in my life is who I want in my life.  All others have been weeded out through natural  process.

Funny that just sounds so scientific.  LOL!  But seriously...  there have been plenty of times that I have been sad because I don't hear from one person or another...

Then I read this quote... 

If someone wants to be a part of your life they'll make an effort to be in it, {so don't bother reserving a space in your heart for someone who doesn't make an effort to stay.} ~ author unknown (looked and looked for the author :( but to no avail was never found)

This quote really clicked inside me.  It put so much into perspective.  A real "AHA" moment if you will.

No sadness here... none whatsoever... the people who want to be in my life... well they are a big part of it... and those that don't.. well they don't matter and it's no sweat off my nose  wink, wink.  Quite frankly it's their loss.  

What we are is God's gift to us. What we become is our gift to God.  ~ Eleanor Powell

Your attitude is good. Mine in this area could probably use some work.

Raine said...

omg. That quote is EXACTLY what I needed to read today. Thank you for reading my mind :)

Aliy Hurd said...

this just left me a little aha a little dumbfounded. I'm a person who can't let go. I hold on to everything. I hold on to hope where the is none. I hold onto friendships where there is none.. Maybe I need to look at letting go

Courtney G said...

So true about making that effort if you really want to;)

Shannon Milholland said...

What a healthy perspective. I agree that often we try to hard to keep a relationship alive when really we're the only party who cares.

Wow. This is a challenging challenge (?!?!?...sometimes it is tough to let go of people in your life who really shouldn't be there in the first place isn't it?
Really like your new blog design Carla!
