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 … 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?

  1. Beautiful post, Val. Letting go allows us to flow with the current . . . instead of staying moored in one place.


    • Waves, flow, highs and lows … 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 πŸ™‚


  2. Letting go was a difficult lesson for me to learn…I 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 life…….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, “Hmmmm…aren’t you a little young for that?”


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

    • Diana, What an amazing surprise this morning. I got the post from Louise and still didn’t figure out what was going on ….. It made me blush. And that’s something I rarely do at my age!!
      Thank you so much. You are generous spirit, loving soul and shining light in cyberspace. Hugs Val x


  4. Tee hee! Diana sent me — but not really. We found eachother first! πŸ™‚ What a gift to encounter you. What a joy to be on this path together. Hugs


    • 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


  5. Coming to you via Talk To Diana! Love this topic. I have been musing on our human tendency to hold on to a familiar but unpleasant current state rather than let go and reach out to a promising but uncertain future. I see (and experience) this phenomenon often.


    • Thank you for stopping by Jennifer. I’m grateful that this touched you. I love your photos! Looking forward to connecting more. Val x


  6. Great post Val. The hard part is learning to let go, but once we do that, the freedom we feel changes our lives!


  7. 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… ❀ xxx

  8. 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 ❀ πŸ™‚

  9. Beautiful, Val. Funny how many of us work hard to accumulate during the first half of our lives and then work hard during the second half to let go. πŸ™‚


  10. Letting go, for me it’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…
    Thank you Val πŸ™ I just came across your blog and I absolutely love it 😊Thank you so much for sharing πŸ™ blessings.
