  1. So unfair to find great writers that are talented artists as well! Another beautiful one!


    • Oh Marissa!!! It’s 5:59 am and you have already filled my favorite slot for the day! You are my favorite! I would not consider myself an artist. I have recently begun to doodle because I always wanted to ‘draw’. And though I can’t draw many things I want to draw….I am discovering that there are certain feelings I can capture with my doodles. 🙂 Thank you so much for saying that. It REALLY felt incredibly good to read it. 🙂


  2. Kids get so mad whenever they lose a balloon, sometimes they even cry. If only we know then, what we know now. 🙂 Love this.

    Done this. Both of them and both can be equally as difficult.

    Sometimes a person can never let go… Forever trapped. And there’s those pesky colors again. 🙂


  5. Good idea Colleen 🙂

    Such a powerful message.

    This is wonderful, CM. I love your drawings. They are so expressive. Your words are the icing on the cake. 🙂


  9. Sigh. Isn’t that the truth?!


  10. So true. And so powerful. What better advice could someone receive. It allows us to move on and face/enjoy/be involved in life as it’s happening and not our misery or attachments. My hardest lesson, is this. Have a great weekend to you and yours. ❤

    I see letting go in two ways. Letting our kids go off into the world and use what we taught them, and not intrude. The second is letting go of negativity. That one is becoming more easy for me. It’s amazing where the mind can go, if we don’t hold ourselves back. I love your doodles too.

    The wisdom to know when to let go and when to hold on, that is one of the keys to a good and happy life, Colleen. It is an ever-changing puzzle, too, isn’t it?


  13. Oh how I wish I knew how. 🙂

    Cute picture
    We have to let it go, mostly because it was not ours to begin with
    Somene or something caused us pain or is running our life thoughts and burying us in negative ways
    Don’t let them win
    We r in control of our thoughts
    When we r too busy worrying about the wrong thing
    We run the risk of not seeing the right thing


    • Thank you Someone. That was brilliantly said. And accurate as far as my experiences go. Even knowing that, it sometimes takes work and effort to “just” let go. Again, thank you.

    Colleen, LMBO, I can see I need to get up real early to be your favorite LOL LOL. This was beautifully said, and the picture you drew was priceless. I truly love your daily doses of sanity. Please take care, Bill

    It’s hard to let go, painful. Great post.

    You captured these profound thoughts in such a simple and unique way. There are living things, people, birds, animals and butterflies that I prefer to live freely. (My brothers had butterfly and moth collections, which I am not judgmental of, but I would much rather see them flying and fluttering around then pinned onto a black paper…) I also believe in letting go of people or things that drag you down, preventing your own ability to “fly!” Loved this, Colleen!!


    • Thank you Robin. 🙂 I know what you mean. For example, I appreciate zoos and the educational aspect many of them have. And the chance to see animals I never otherwise would see. But….I’m always sad when I leave, because they are magnificent creatures trapped. (Some are gross, but still trapped. 😉 )

      The things I need to let go are things that holding on to them makes me unhappy and miserable and setting them free would be good for ME. And letting them go doesn’t hurt ANYone.

    Some things you let go of and when they are better or ready, they come back too 🙂 Still, true and love the picture too.


  20. I can’t tell you how much I needed this right now. It really speaks to me…and I’m listening. 🙂
