Let what is done be done
“Let what is done be done” was written by guest contributor, Babajide Faseyi.
You may have said or did something yesterday or the day before, but what you said or did back then does not have to do with who you are now. You are of a totally different construct now than you were then.
If you are going over what you said or did and how you should have said or did things differently, know that you don’t have to judge yourself. You can see the situation much better from where you are now and that is already a sign that you are of a totally different construct now.
There is a peace of mind that comes when you can rest in the knowing that this moment here now is a brand new moment, and that who you are now is of a totally different construct than who you were before.
Why compare an older version of yourself to a newer version of yourself? It is totally not fair on you to make that comparison and there is a peace of mind that comes from being free of that comparison.
Let your focus be on who you are now, and how good it feels to have grown even as you will keep on growing. Your happiness and your enthusiasm for life come from living as the consistently unfolding newer version of yourself, as the miracle of life unfolds right before you.

About the Author: My name is Babajide Faseyi. I was born and raised in Nigeria and then moved to the United States for college at the age of 19. In my 20’s, I became acutely aware that there was more to life than I had been taught and this led me to a deep search. I read voraciously. After a period of disillusionment with not having an outlet for the creativity that I felt within myself, I encountered Eckhart Tolle’s book, The Power of Now. And thus, the journey of knowing who I truly am and the discovery of what I have to offer creatively began. The links to my facebook pages where my writings are posted are –facebook.com/bababajide and facebook.com/babajideinc.
I really really really love this article!!! I sort of got a tad angry with myself over the fact that I didn’t really get as much accomplished as I would have liked to have … Knowing that I did have the time and didn’t bothered me but you know what; that was a decision that was best for that time and it’s ok, it’s all good I am going forth going to use that as motivation as to what I won’t want to do again.
This as well as the newsletter I got from this site about the bigger picture really helps me feel connected. Like maybe I needed that rest so I wouldn’t feel burnt out or maybe in my time of “slack” I found motivation and more insight. I went with the flow of what felt right. Thank you Bababajide and Andrea! Xoxo
Good point Bobby. So often we stand where we are looking at what we haven’t done yet rather than what we have done. This often happens in the valleys…we always want to be on the “peak” but it’s good to rest and reflect, and these slower times can be enjoyable as well (and can provide tremendous opportunity for reflection and insight). Even more, without a little downtime the high times wouldn’t be so much fun. I myself have been working on accepting the moments of rest without judging them for being more “productive” XO
