Let It Go

I found this image on Tumblr. I love it, because it's so true. Everyone holds onto something, whether it be be small or huge. Something that happened or something that someone said can change your whole life.

It's up to you whether you decide to lock away that one little thing inside you, or let it go like a helium balloon into the sky.

Although its hard to let go of something, its even harder to have it nagging at you everyday, always there weighing you down.

Believe in yourself and stay strong, no one would be the same without you.
So live while you can; live while you're young :)

  1. So much easier said than done huh? I am so impressed that you are able to recognize this wisdom at your age. I spent so much of my life clinging to ideas, identities, obsessions etc...that I wish I could have just let so much of it go. You know that non-attachment is the backbone of Buddhism. Buddhist believe that must of our suffering is caused by our attachments to things, and that by simply letting go-we can be free from suffering. Sounds to easy huh? Until we realize how hard it is to let go.

    Loving your blog and the fact that we are connecting through the content you are sharing. Keep it up.

    1. I agree that it is a lot easier said than done, and I wish that everyone could have no suffering and no worries. Hakuna Ma Tata!

      I think that the Buddhist belief that letting go frees you from suffering is very interesting. I'll be sure to remember that.

      Thanks for commenting B)

  2. This is a beautiful post. :) Your tone sounds so wise and fragile as if you're a grandmother who's lived for a hundred years, giving me advise. *This is not a bad thing.
    Please continue posting stuff like this! Your blog is one of my favorites and whenever I read one of your posts, I feel like I've leant something<3

  3. It's such a simple message that holds so much meaning. The picture really sums it all up, doesn't it?

    Great post.

  4. That picture of the balloon is so meaningful, yet its so small. These days, you see these huge pictures that have no meaning. That one simple balloon with those 3 simple words means so much. And the best part is that everyone can relate to it. You did an amazing job with showing us how we all have something that we just need to let go of, and how sometimes we can't.

    Love your work!
