55 thoughts on “The Power To Let Go

    • 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. 🙂


  1. 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.


  2. 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


  3. 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


  4. 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.


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