A recent article I read made me think and, in turn, inspired me to write this post.
Picture yourself standing on a dock and everything you want to release from your life has been placed into a small boat; picture yourself untying the boat from its moors and giving it a gentle push. Picture the boat floating away and, with it, all that you want to be rid of.

I’m releasing relationships that drain my soul and pull me down; I’m no longer responsible for their happiness.
I am releasing my need to say yes to everyone but myself. I am learning that “no” is not a four letter word.
I’m releasing old habits and opening the door to new. I’m making room for wonder, splendor, excitement and creativity.
I’m releasing fears about what’s to come and trusting what my Mother always said: that I’m capable enough to handle what comes anyways.
I’m releasing my tendency to give it all away; I’m learning not everyone deserves some of what I’ve got.
I’m releasing. I’m releasing. I’m releasing.
