Let it go

Whenever I find a quote, a line in a song, a scripture that really speaks to me, I have to write it down. I've got little slips of paper EVERYWHERE, tucked in my journal, taped to my walls, stuffed in my pocket or purse. I am planning and working on a quote/scripture journal and will have all of these inspirational sayings in one place, embellished with paper, buttons, ribbon, sparkly stuff and other fun things, but I don't want to lose any of these little gems in the process, so...I thought why not just post them on the blog, then they are there whenever I need to refer to them and will be easily found when I am ready to scrap them.

I came across this little line in a song written by Michael McLean

All that's wrong in your life, let it go
All that is worth saving is love
Love will hold you tight
Love lifts the burden and love shines the light
Only love, nourishes us so
If it's not love
Simply let it go.

This hit me at a time when I was struggling to let go of something that I had in a death grip. It wasn't healthy for me to continue hoping for something that just wasn't going to happen and I had no control over. It is absolutely freeing to my soul when I can finally pry open the tight grip on whatever it is I'm holding onto and let it go. I know that God has bigger and better plans for me and I need to trust in Him enough to let Him do His work in my life, knowing this, brings a peace and calmness to my heart, mind and soul, and frees me to concentrate and focus on more important things. So, I look forward to what opportunites and possibilities come my way!!!


  1. Sharla, I love the way you look at much like me. I, too have dozens and dozens of quotes everywhere and on everything to be put nice and neatly in a journal!:)

    I am so happy I found you again!!!

  2. My problem is that I have a bunch of journals lying around, half completed with bits and pieces from here and there in my life! Lol! Love the lyrics, it's amazing how a song can speak to you sometimes.

  3. Yes I have pieces of paper all over with quotes and ideas. I started a journal but didn't finish it.

    Isn't it wonderful how lyrics can touch you. My hubby quotes song lyrics all the time.

  4. Glad you enjoyed the Shawn Cassidy fix. What a trip down Memory Lane, hug? Also loved that you used to kiss the TV. I thought I was the only one that did that;)
