i want my breaths to have mattered

let it go - permission granted
 (new print, available here, original sold)
Here’s a bit of what I’m letting go at the moment:
The fear that the shoe will drop on our abundance any second now.
The gremlin that I’m just lucky, not smart.
The worry that I’ll never lose these 20lbs and the clothes still waiting in my closet since before baby was born.
Unrealistic expectations.
Realistic expectations.
Untrue stories.
What I’m inviting in:
Permission to let all those things go.
Permission to be gentle on myself in the process.
Life is one big breath of letting some stuff go, and letting some stuff in. I suppose the trick is discerning what to exhale, and what to breathe in. Takes practice. And I love it. Because in the end, I want my breaths to have mattered – to have taken in the juciest, most joyous morsels of life while letting the rest of it go.

Sending much love,
