Let it Go! Set it Free! Be Free!

Sometimes we got to let it go.  Let it go and purge.

Let Go of all those things, yes all of those things.  The clothes, the old letters, the stuffed animals, the boxes full of past treasures that we have collected throughout our life that now hold no true meaning.  And, that now present huge baggage that is weighing us down like quicksand we’ve accidental found ourselves in the middle of as we run through the forest as if we are suddenly caught in the middle of a B grade horror movie.  SCREAM!!!  Watching ourselves slowly fading out of sight that we can’t even breathe or even see what is truly meant to be.  Things can be beautiful and tell a million stories of past times that have shaped us extensively. But, now they are just memories.  Just history taking up space that we really need in order to breathe.  Get rid of that stuff.  Set it Free!  Now grab my hand so I can pull you up in to the fresh air of a new day that was created just for you so you may Be Free!

Let Go of all those people that we hold onto so tight with a Kung FO grip that we deem to be so valuable to our life yet so destructive and detrimental to our soul.  Our soul that is begging to expand and grow like a beautiful blooming flower, yet we hold it hostage and control it because of our fear to just Let Go as we welt away never to grow.  Yeah, we get to still love those children of God through and through, who in some way or another has added color and growth to our life—which we knew.  But, sometimes it is best to love at a far so that we may draw nearer to that real bright star that we can’t catch because our hands aren’t free.  Free to draw the person(s) closer to you who are anxiously waiting in line for you to open the door and ask them to come in.  Come into your heart!  Come into your soul!  Come enter your spirit so that together you may soar and grow and experience your destiny, whatever that may be.  Divine Order!  Set it Free!  Be Free!

Hurry before it’s too late.  Too late for the chance for new opportunities that can only be created when we open a space to have it enter and positively fill our soul and revive the spirit that has been begging to be saved from you.  Are you blocking the blessing?  Let It Go.  Release the grip, please.  It’s okay. For real you’ll see.  Set it free so that you may be free to be.  Free to BeDoLove!  kcb

I was looking through some past writings/poems of mine and found this.  I wrote it back on February 10, 2010 at 1:30am.  I wonder what I was going through at that time.  But, I thought it quite appropriate to share as we enter the new year and we give way to new beginnings.

  1. This is good advice. Too many possessions hamper and hinder you. It’s hard to let go, but when you finally do, there is amazing lightness of being! One little picky thing: I think you mean soar instead of sore.:)

    1. Thanks so much Marie. Holding on because we think it serves us and keeps us safe, however it just keeps us from what will really serve us and is meant for us. PS: Not picky at all. 🙂 Thank you.

  2. Letting go of people, feelings, possessions-it’s freeing. Frees you up to start fresh and move on. Forgiving is a way of letting go, I will never forget these words from The Shack-“Forgiveness is not about forgetting, it’s about letting go of the other persons throat.” Let it go, free yourself, remove your chains, boundaries and obstacles-move on.

    1. “letting go the other persons throat” HA!!! Indeed because that’s what we want to do is choke the ish out of them. lol But, then that’s just doing us more harm than good. But, YES!!! Forgiveness is KEY!!! Be Free Carol! Be Free!

  3. Removing the physical and emotional clutter from our lives truly is the ONLY way to make room for all the GOODNESS we proclaim we want/need in our lives. It’s scary as hell, as most change can be — but looking backwards too long causes us to stumble on every footstep we make in a forward-facing direction. Why make our journey HARDER? Instead, let’s take a deep breath…. LET GO…. smile and enjoy the ride!

    Well said, dear one!

    1. Thanks Valerie! Yeah a lot of it is fear based to let go of just material things let alone people. I had a bunch of stuff in my place that I knew I needed to get rid of and was having a hard time motivating myself. Then one day (this was two years ago) I was like okay if I’m not going to do it on my own let me get someone to help me. Well I hired a friend who is a professional organizer. Best decision I could have made. And, it felt good to see the bags and bags of stuff leave my place. But, I also know during the process I was getting caught up and emotional. Even now I still have trouble, but at least I can define it and make moves. Love you woman.

  4. This is SOOOOO Apropos! I started my process of “letting go” back in November. I never realized how weighted I was until that time. I recently read something to the effect of how people think that hanging and holding on is a sign of strength, but in reality, the real strength is in letting go. Whether it be people, mindsets, or stuff…..letting go of the things that no longer serve you is real talk and does take strength to begin and complete the process. I am learning…… Thank you for this very timely post. I BE DO LOVE YOU!

    1. Thanks Dereine. And, definitely the strength and courage is in the letting go. Old habits die hard. But, when they do it opens the door for beautiful blessings. Love you sis! BeDoLove

  5. Live out your passions, share and breath your words… We need constant reminders so we don’t lose ourselves in the negativity of the world!!! You are added to my list of Soulful Storytellers… I see a collaboration in our future!!!

    1. Thanks so much Soulful. And, yes regarding the constant reminders. Shoot!!! Besides to inspire others, it’s another reason why I write and share. It’s too keep reminding me and holding myself accountable. I look forward to also following you. BeDoLove

  6. You are so right! This post is exactly what I spent my time doing over the past week…free time spent going thru storage bins of things I’ve been holding onto for 9 years. Mostly papers and things that belonged to my Dad who passed away 9 years ago. I must say that purging thru the bins has lifted a tremendous weight…didn’t realize how heavy it was until I released the things that no longer served a purpose – realizing my memories will last a lifetime and I really didn’t need those things to carry on the love I still have inside for my daddy. I prayed and purged – it was one of the hardest things I had to do – and I am feeling lighter as I continue to release my hold on physical items. BeDoLove you broke me down with this post…but as you know it’s all LOVE! XOXO

    1. Hey there Lisa. Thanks so much for sharing. In our recent conversations I know how losing your father was very difficult and has required some time for you to grieve and process. You’re doing a great job love. And, of course because you are doing what is necessary doesn’t mean you love him any less. It just gives you more opportunity to breathe and BeDoLove! I love you sweet. xoxo.

  7. I am open and love being clutter free in all areas of my life, it’s the only way I can function. Some people refer to me as a minimalist and that’s cool. Congrats BeDoLove!

  8. I am a big fan of decluttering. Some folk call me a minimalist and that cool. I believe in travelling light. Ready for movement and new experiences. Congratulations, BeDoLove!!! One Love!!!

    1. Thanks so much for chiming in Zuri. Trust minimalist is an awesome way to go. I’ve been working to get there. Let’s just say it’s a work in progress. 🙂 Love you sis.
