We all have things we dwell on. Thoughts or situations on which we become fixated, replaying them over and over in our heads. So often, these are situations that are in the past. Situations that may never happen.
How good would it feel to take that thought and just let it go?
Think of the situation you fixate on, think of it’s pivotal moment. Now take a snapshot of that. Actually blink your eyes, as if taking a picture. Imagine that picture as an old polaroid. Hold it in your hand and watch it fade to black and white.
Let the wind catch the polaroid and pull it from your fingers. Watch as it tumbles through the air. Notice how quickly it leaves you. Let the moment go.
What other ways can you think of to let go of this moment?
Do you pin the polaroid to a tree then watch as you walk away? The picture soon becomes indistinguishable. The tree it’s pinned just one of many in the forest. The picture will fade. The moment is gone.
