Hey y’all, you’re listening to Lovin My Daughter-in-law, episode #117: Flush It

I recently went to an amazing workshop that Jill Pack did about navigating life with grace. Cute Heidi Allsop was one of her presenters there, and she was sharing an experience with her and her youngest son playing pickleball. Apparently, when they’re playing together, he’ll often tell his mom to flush it, meaning, Hey mom, stop worrying about a serve you missed or a ball that didn’t go over the net. Flush it. Move on. Let it go.

I love this concept and thank you Heidi’s son, for teaching this to me. I think about how different life could be if we simply take some of the same old stories that we keep telling ourselves that are causing us a lot of irritation, guilt, and grief, and we flush them. Letting go of things can be challenging, but it’s often necessary for personal growth and peace of mind.

Here are five simple ways to help you flush the things you no longer want to keep.

First, write them down. Journaling can be therapeutic. Write about your feelings, thoughts, and the things you want to let go of. Putting them on paper can help release them from your mind. Then, if you want to wad up the paper and toss or flush it, that’s a great option too.

Second, focus on what you can control. Accept that you can’t change certain situations or other people. Instead, shift your focus to things within your control, concentrating on your own actions and reactions.

Third, practice forgiveness. Forgive yourself and others for past mistakes or hurts. Holding onto resentment only weighs you down. Forgive and flush it.

Fourth, physical release. Engage in physical activities that you enjoy. Exercise, sports, yoga, or whatever you can physically do to release tension and stress from your body.

And last, number five, take small steps. Letting go is a process. Start with small things and gradually work your way up to bigger challenges. Remember, too, sometimes we flush things and they don’t completely go away or they come back up. That’s normal. Give yourself a lot of love and compassion that you’re working towards letting things go. Celebrate what you are choosing to flush.
