December 5 – Let Go. What (or whom) did you let go of this year? Why?
I let go of a few people and a few things this year. I made choices of who and what to keep.
I quit a job that I had been at for three years because of the unorganization and the people leading the organization itself. I first quit being on executive board because I disagreed with all of their decisions then at the end of the year last year, I notified them I would no longer be working there and I was switching to a different organization.
For me it was the best choice because I was SO unhappy working there, nothing was getting done, everything was unorganized and I didn’t agree with the direction the organization was taking.
I’m also in the process of leaving another organization because I don’t really have time for it and I’m not as passionate about it anymore. People change and things change.
I also let go of a few people this year. I know who my real friends are and I want my real friends who will always support me and not have to compete with me by my side. I’m very lucky to have my close friends and not live a life where I’m lied to about being “best friends” with someone.
Sometimes it is hard to let things go, but I learned a lot this past year about letting things go. I made tough decisions and decisions that I wasn’t sure about because I didn’t know if I would find another job, but I stepped into the unknown and I’m better for it.
