Life is … Letting Go

I came across this earlier post and it made me pause and reflect today. Letting go is always a part of living, yet can be hard sometimes. I hope you enjoy this reminder.


letting go

Letting go is living life fully.

We let go of every exhalation in order to breathe in life.

We let go in order to sleep.

We let go of being held as a baby in order to walk.

We let go of our children so they can grow as adults.

We let go of old hurts in order to heal.

We let go of our armor so we can give and receive love.

We let go of attachments in order to be free.

We let go of the past in order to step into the future.

We let go in order to grow.

Sometimes we are afraid to let go because we experience fear of the unknown and the emptiness we might feel โ€ฆ But we do know in our hearts that when we resist letting go we resist living our lives fully.

What have you been holding on to that you are ready to let go of?

    • Waves, flow, highs and lows โ€ฆ are what life is about. Thank you Nancy for bringing this continuous movement into the idea of letting go. You are so right. It is part of the flow ๐Ÿ™‚


  1. Letting go was a difficult lesson for me to learnโ€ฆI spent so much time trying to be in control and “look perfect” to the world by doing all the right things. While I have let go of MANY MANY things in my lifeโ€ฆโ€ฆ.I’m still meditating on the wisdom of letting go of my career. My heart tells me I’m finished with it, but my measurement stick says, “Hmmmmโ€ฆaren’t you a little young for that?”


    • ISWH – Thank you for sharing your experience and perspective. Our “measurement sticks” keeps us safeโ€ฆ and often stuck. Perhaps its time to change what your measurement stick measures. Val x

    • Julie, Welcome! I’m glad you found this post helpful. We can all benefit from the reminder to let go. A wonderful thing about transitions is that we also get to create new space for us to grow into. Good luck with tomorrow and beyond. Val x


  3. Beautiful words dear Val.. When we let go we allow room for growth to flood within… It takes time to learn, that by letting go we allow ourselves to expand as we allow room for new experiences to fill the void… โค xxx

  4. This is beautiful and wise… yes, part of evolving and growing up has to do with letting go… It could seem scary, but we just have to release what is no longer useful or meant to be… sending love and best wishes, dear Val โค ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Letting go, for me itโ€™s not any easy thing to do. To let go and just be…after being throug so much. I crave a sense of control as a protective mechanism… I know I must let go to find peace. Letting go is my goal…
