letting go….

it can wrench one’s heart

destroy a person’s body

give life to writing

rebuild a shattered spirit

can free a tormented mind




roller coaster 2

the fear and thrill of letting go….

    You have no idea how much that just touched home for me.

      🙂 i think letting go is the hardest thing in the world, because in order to achieve acceptance, the process of letting go must be accomplished first. thus is life. xx

    Letting go also opens the door to new and exciting opportunities. Life is a great journey that needs to be experienced.

    Awh! It’s ok if you don’t let go right away. It’s in little bits but then one day you do! I think maybe! I love this! 🙂

    Fabulous. But hope I don’t lower the tone by saying that in the fall, it’s only the last half-inch that hurts! 😉 Sorry, couldn’t resist!

    Letting go can be so difficult at times but hanging on to someone can be even harder, almost damaging to all involved. Thank you for expressing it so well.

      thank you so much for your lovely words:)

    Your words are so beautiful. I have been working on this process and I can’t tell you how amazing things have turned out when I truly “let go.” I am so happy to have landed here…and I am thankful for this reminder…it is very timely. Blessitude 🙂

      Thank you so very much for your incredible words. I am beyond touched. This piece is probably one of the most if not the most personal piece I have written. It is my greatest struggle followed by acceptance which I am thinking needs to be the next piece.

      Thank you so much and thanks for the follow. I am very, very thankful. Kimberly.

    So true, my friend, so true! You have such a way of writing from your heart. xoxo

    • 21. words4jp  |  April 13, 2014 at 10:57 pm

      • 22. Kirsten  |  April 13, 2014 at 11:21 pm

        You WILL get it right!! I have complete faith in you 🙂

    I miss so much, not checking the WP Reader. Sorry I have missed your place for awhile…catching up! I love the way this poem transforms, right before our eyes. Beautiful.

    • 24. words4jp  |  April 18, 2014 at 11:37 am

      Thank you so much. I have been negligent in my reader. I find the reader on my iPhone reveals about 50% of the posts from the blogs I follow. The others are on my desktop. Unfortunately caring my desktop with me all over the place is not an option. I try and play catch up on the weekends;) but I never seem to get caught up!

      • 25. Patti Hall  |  April 18, 2014 at 1:45 pm

        I hear you! I’m always miles behind.
