Let Go

Pamela Alderman's avatar Pamela Alderman Vote Code: 64674

Life's ebb and flow, at one point or another, brings us to a significant place where change and transformation can occur if we let go of whatever holds us back or weighs us down—like control, expectations, toxic relationships, or fear. At times, we may feel like we're drowning in despair, defeat, or disappointment. But hope remains alive. If we somehow muster the courage to reach through the breakers, a tiny lifeline of hope reaches back to keep us afloat. How we chart our course until the next rising tide is up to us. The choice is ours. But we will experience a new level of peace and soul healing if we release and finally let go. Write a couple of words on the vellum paper to identify your struggle—the thing that is holding you back, weighing you down. Next crumple this paper. Then as you release the crumpled paper, it symbolically becomes one with the painting, mixing with the waves and sand, and carried out to sea. So crumple the paper and let go.
