let it go

A couple of years ago, I was complaining to a family member about a frustrating situation that I couldn’t get over. 

About halfway through my complaining, this family member played “Let It Go” from the Disney film Frozen and we both burst into laughter.

All jokes aside, the exchange offered a valuable lesson that I try to be mindful of to this day: sometimes the best thing to do when we’re frustrated — no matter how justified our frustration may seem — is to let it go. 

Your energy is almost always better spent elsewhere.
