Things We’ve Let Go Of & Things We’re Leaving Behind: A Community Post

The other night, in a reflective mood, I posed some questions on The Smile Project’s Instagram account. I was really touched by the thoughtful answers people offered and, with their permission, I’m going to share their words. Keep reading to see the beauty of letting go.

What’s something you’re glad you let go of in 2023?

I always want to please everyone but somethings that's not the right thing to do (always be you!!)

The worries of other people’s opinions

Worthless arguments

The need to meet every goal 

What’s something you want less of in 2024?

Screen time



Wasted energy

Feelings of self comparison to peers my age with different life paths

Comparing myself to others. This new year I want to appreciate all my work and just be kind to myself.
