Some things you need to let go of or they will kill your energy, your spirit. your will.
Some things you need to let go of because it is their spirit to be free.
There is incredible power-
In letting go.
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. 🙂
Kids get so mad whenever they lose a balloon, sometimes they even cry. If only we know then, what we know now. 🙂 Love this.
Oh Shian this is so true. How happy a child would be if they were able to consider all that the balloon was going to see ! 🙂
Done this. Both of them and both can be equally as difficult.
Yes they can. Difficult and then also so freeing. But we don’t always understand that do we?
No, we don’t. It often takes time for us to understand that.
Yep. Yep. 🙂
🙂 Thanks Eric.
Sometimes a person can never let go… Forever trapped. And there’s those pesky colors again. 🙂
Too true Koji. I know I hang on to things I need to let go. Bitterness being one of them.
And those colors….I actually drew this a couple of weeks ago. When I used it for today I chuckled knowing who would notice the colors. 😉
Bitterness is ugly…and even realizing it does no good at times…
I know. As I drop my head in acknowledgement of my own weaknesses and failings.
Good idea Colleen 🙂
Thank you Irene. 🙂
Perfect words and image.
Thank you NAPR. 🙂
Such a powerful message.
Thank you Pierre 🙂
This one is the best advice to give to someone.
We have to let it go.
We do. Have you ever noticed how easy it is to give advice, even if we don’t always follow our own? 😉 I hope to practice this too.
It’s so very hard to let go even if we know we have to do it… It’s a day to day battle with our inner child.
That it is. It’s amazing how we ‘know’ these things. These things that are good and bad for us, and yet we struggle with doing or not doing them.
Have a nice day.
I am still struggling, but I will succeed.
I’ll struggle along with you. We’ll remember, at least for today, that we aren’t alone in this kind of feat. Happy day Pierre.
This is wonderful, CM. I love your drawings. They are so expressive. Your words are the icing on the cake. 🙂
Thank you so much Robin! 🙂
Sigh. Isn’t that the truth?!
Amen it is.
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. ❤
Paulette I have to admit I struggle SO much with this as well.
Have a wonderful weekend as well Paulette. I hope there are lots of happy tails thumping !!! 🙂
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.
Thank you April. Yes, I agree. Some letting go is good for others. Some letting go is good for us. 🙂
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?
Definitely a puzzle. And that wisdom thing….it is the trickiest of puzzles. 🙂
Most days I can’t even get the straight edges put together, and that’s supposed to be the easy part, you know, Colleen?
I get it. It’s this crazy part of our human-ness.
Oh how I wish I knew how. 🙂
I seem to take quite a long time to learn some of these lessons Huck. 🙂 I don’t think it’s something we can just ‘do’ even when we know we should do it. !
Very true. 🙂
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.
fantastic art and words. seems simple yet somehow so hard to do at times )
I know Beth. It’s incredible the strength it takes to do something simple.
And 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
Thank you Bill. And you’re always on a favorite list. 🙂
It’s hard to let go, painful. Great post.
Thank you Heart! 🙂
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.
Thank you again Niaaeryn. Sometimes they do come back don’t they? 🙂
I can’t tell you how much I needed this right now. It really speaks to me…and I’m listening. 🙂
I hope it helps Debra. 🙂 And thank you for listening.
