Monday's Moment of Wisdom - Pearl Number 54

Monday, 14 October 2013

“You will find that it is necessary to let things go; simply for the reason that they are heavy. So let them go, let go of them. I tie no weights to my ankles.” ― C. JoyBell C.

Today's moment of wisdom is going to focus on the weight we all carry around that constantly brings us down. We all have that weight hang off of us, whether it's a project that leaves us unfulfilled, a relationship that isn't giving us what we deserve, a job that leads us in the wrong direction, a commitment that's too much to handle, a feeling/emotion that's full of negativity or simply something, somewhere, in your life, that is no longer bringing you joy or happiness, it becomes the hardest load for us to carry and puts a lot of unnecessary pressure on our well being...

If you're sat here reading this and feel yourself thinking of a particular thing, you know a scenario, event or ongoing situation that pops in to your mind then this pearl of wisdom is for you and I urge you to start thinking instead of how you can put that weight down, let it go, wave it off in to the sunset. 
For some of you the thought of putting that weight down is actually scary and it may take some time to find the time, space or courage to release it but even taking the first step of just imagining how lighter your life may be will hopefully lead you to the next step of making a plan of how to go about it.

This week I have had to put down some of the weight that was burdening me, that's why there has been a little break in the blog, I've had to make an effort to finish a few started projects and deal with some uncomfortable feelings all of which were bringing me stress, sadness and anxiety. When I took the time to release the weight of these issues I found myself relaxing, visualising new opportunities and revitalising some healthy habits, feeling like my true self again.

So what's weighing heavy on your mind this week, anything bring you down? Are you having trouble letting go of that weight or have you successfully released it already? Tell me more below...


  1. Love this, I have just written a blog about feelings, I feel a bit weird doing it, I may not keep it public for long, I feel embarressed sharing something that is inside - your words today mean a lot!

    1. Thanks Lisa and I can totally empathise with how you feel, it can be quite a vulnerable feeling to put yourself out there, what I've learnt though is that everyone has moments of highs and lows and sharing them, whichever they are can be good for the spirit, I find I learn so much about how I work when I put myself out there because it helps me to reflect back and continue to move forward, being vulnerable and then pushing through that shows others that feeling good is always possible!

  2. I hope you are feeling better now, thanks for the words xxx
