31 days, 31 Ways to Bring Joy: Day 6: Let Go

No, I'm not talking about that ever-popular Disney song. 
There is an additional pronoun in that one that I am purposefully omitting here.

To let go is to truly be free to experience (and therefore spread) joy. 

This one may sound easy enough, however, I know that this is easier said than done. I challenge you to make the conscious decision to let go of anything that is getting in your way of joy.

Let go of frustration, anger, irritation, or anything that causes your brow to furrow.

Let go of the past. It happened, it is done, and you can't do a thing to change it.

Let go of unrealistic expectations. There is a difference between setting a lofty goal and holding yourself to a standard that is artificial and utterly unattainable.

Let go, and your heart will be open to receive and ultimately spread joy.
