I preach and preach to all who will listen (and yell it for the girl there in the back that looks like me) to let things go, especially those little things that hurt me so. Holding on to them is for what? To prove a point, to make sure we get the last word, to being right….. to quote Dr. Phil, would you rather be right or would you rather be happy?
This is for all of us who struggle with just letting it go.
Sometimes our grasp is strong
on that thing that needs to be let go.
Our fists are clenched,
we’re holding tight,
and we don’t even know.
Then one day it gets heavy
and we just have to set it free,
if we ever want to be free ourselves,
we have to let go, and then let it be.
Some things are so not worth
using up our precious time for,
because we were made,
we were created,
beautifully, for so much more.
So lay it down,
and simply walk away,
and decide not to carry it another bit,
don’t give it another day…
of this precious little time you have.
