Sometimes, ya just gotta let go . . .

She Let Go
After this cartoon went out earlier this year, we received a number of emails from people asking for female version. Here it is!I think the Buddhist in me came out in this one. So much human suffering is tied to hanging on to things; material, emotional, or otherwise.

I believe that happiness comes from inside us – We often forget that, and spend a lot of time blaming other people for our unhappiness.

The commentary on the original image read:
“If you’re unhappy, nine times out of ten it’s because you’re clinging onto something.

Nine times out of ten, happiness and letting go are synonymous.”



. . . love love LOVE this one!!! :)

As always — many thanks to Hugh MacLeod of

“Nine times out of ten, happiness and letting go are synonymous.”

So, I axe ya: with a brand new year on the horizon, what is it that YOU have been holding on to (or fighting against) that’s probably been interfering with your own happiness?  I can think of a couple doozies for myself.  What say you – we both let go together . . .  Separate-but-together, we can share support and motivation, and get that much closer to where we really wanna be, and who we really wanna be when we get there.  Oh, the awesomeness that awaits us . . .  I mean — how delicious does THAT sound?! :)

So, my little sparrow — here’s to spreading our big beautiful wings . . . and letting go. :)

PS: Here are the links to two previous posts I’ve written regarding the idea of letting go. The first is a short stop-motion animation film entitled (surprisingly enough) “Let Go.”  The other, a pretty rad post entitled: “Don’t fight it, don’t fear it, don’t forget it; just ride the wave!”  I highly recommend you taking a moment to check them both out. :)
