Let It Go…

Let it go: (All that stands between you and your ability to inhale fully…all that stands between you and your ability to exhale fully).


…incessant chatter.








…self-limiting beliefs.



…the past.

…the myth of perfectionism.


…the desire to fit in at all costs.

…the ability to shrink.

…your willingness to dim your light.














…perception of control.



…that which no longer fits.



…the container that pinches your roots.

“You are free. People who don’t have it would kill or die for it. And they do.

You are free. Don’t waste it.” from Free by Allison Nazarian (I highly recommend that you read the entire article).

It’s my *birth*day week.  I am preparing to soar.  I invite you to join me!

What is one thing you are willing to release today?

Much peace,


Reminder: Experiment. Explore. Experience.

  1. I am willing to release the “the myth of perfectionism”, Joy. Allison is amazing with a beautiful writing style.

    What date is your birthday? I am sending you an email with a photo to complement the one you posted here.

    I think of you whenever I gaze at the clouds. And that is every day. Love our connection!

    Love, Vidya.

    • Vidya,

      When I created this affirmation, I thought of you right away…Did you know my boat was named “Ethereal Joy” and it was my *way* and every might I would open the hatch and sleep in the moonlight…every day I would look up at the clouds..to share that is a poignant reminder of connectedness…and a reminder we truly are only as “distant” as we allow ourselves to be.

      I am excited to see what releasing the myth of perfection brings into your life…please keep me posted! I just yesterday had a wonderful conversation with a dear friend, reminding this person that my family connects through “imperfection”…allow us to know all of your *facets* and through that vulnerability love shines :)

      Love to you and an energetic full of all that the sky reflects!

    I am so willing to let go of worry! I sort of “inherited” the tendency to worry from my mom who was a real expert. I feel sad for her (she has been dead for over 30 years, but she still feels very alive to me) because she did not know how to NOT worry. The longer I live, the more I see that there is really nothing to worry about! I do have to keep reminding myself of that because it has been such a habit in my life. I see how things work out and how life goes to such strange extremes to bring goodness to me. So I really am beginning to see the light around the edges of worry, an area which has been pretty dark in the past. I know this won’t be a straight road, but it is a road I want to walk!
    Great post. Joy! Hugs to you!

    • What I love about your reflection here, Jean, is your ability to see clearly how ‘worry’ has been conditioned and your desire to transform that conditioning through presence to it. We don’t know “how” the road will look, we only know this step leads to the next. I love your willingness to celebrate each step, and to inspire others to do the same! Thank you for sharing…love to you, too :)

  3. Happy Birthday! I did watch your love-filled video – awesome – and I love you right back!

    I will give up my lists today – thank you for the gentle nudge. I so need to “watch the clouds” and re-center myself. How easy it is to get caught up in doing and the being part melts away in the chaos.

    Hugs (of Joy!)

    • SuZen,

      It shouldn’t surprise me, but it did: After I wrote this article, I was thinking that I hadn’t heard from you in a bit, and was sending you love and light and gratitude for your presence…*and* here you are! I love that :)

      Thank you for the birthday wishes and kind words…making that video was simple, I don’t know “why” I had such fear, and “why” there was a block…I only know that once I was centered in overflowing love and gratitude, the video felt so incredibly right.

      As you watch the clouds, may your Spirit soar and may all that is reflected to you be nourishing and enlivening :)

      Thank *you* for your presence, truly warms my heart!

      • I’m back and forth to the lake house during the summer so I miss a lot of posts. Thanks so much for thinking of me!!! I try to respond to posts on my blog first and often don’t have the time (or computer) to visit others. (hint hint) :)

Please share your voice: "Let It Go…"
