What are you ready to let go of?

This post was inspired by a stressful situation that I couldn’t let go of, long beyond its solution. No matter how hard I tried. Day in day out. The worry would reappear. Then someone close to me suggested “I shed the stress”. And a lightbulb went off. Each time the repetitive thought appeared, I imagined a tree shedding its leaves. A golden leaf for every anxious thought. This visualization process made all the difference. And so did writing about it.  📝🍂


If you had a magic wand, what would you ask to disappear in your life right now?

What would you say good-bye to?

Once and for all.

It could be an emotion. Or a thought.

A relationship. Or a job.

A place or a thing.

Stress management is a shedding process, not an acquisition project.

It’s time to let go of what drains you.

Let go of what holds you back.

Let go of what keeps you down.

It could be a mindset. Or a memory.

A situation. Or an attitude.

Write it down. Shout it out.

Stress management is a shedding process, not a holding pattern.

It’s time to let go of what weighs you down.

Release it to the universe.

Declare your freedom.

Vow to move on and beyond.

Once and for all.

Stress management is a shedding process, not an endurance test.


 It’s time to make room for joy. ❤️

  1. Oh Andrea, I love this. Perfect timing – I’m writing a description for a workshop on “New Beginnings with Forgiveness”, and I was having trouble letting go of finding the ‘perfect’ description. How perfect is that, given the event is a lot about letting go. 🙂 Right now, I’m willing to let go of finding the perfect description and just have some joy.
    Lots of loving,

    1. Perfectionism holds us back & weighs us down. A cognitive distortion too often disguised as work ethic. I admire you Debbie for calling yourself on it. (Something I know all too well myself.) Sending you an extra dose of faith & joy! The perfect antidote to perfectionism.🌟
