Lay down your burdens.

No more futile tests.

No more unrelenting trials.

No more self inflicted tribulations.

Lay down your burdens.

Let. Them. Go.


Take a breath. Take a rest.

You have strengthened from your burdens.

You have overcome great obstacles.

You have developed. You have grown.

You have earned your freedom ten times over.

Trust your wisdom. Trust your wings.


 NOW is your time to FLY

  1. WOW!!! This really speaks to me in every way! Thank you, Thank you for sharing such beautiful, inspirational words. You always have the “RIGHT” words to say JUST when I need to hear them!!

  2. Great message here. We all need to be better at letting go of our burdens and pain. We live too much in and about things from the past. Life is too short for that. Thanks for the wise words.

    1. So true about the past hijacking our present. Which is why, now more than ever, we need reminders to “snap us out” of the illusions that dominate our society 24/7. Blogging about “thriving” helps us live in the here & now. No illusion. Only reality. Ultimately, this is where we thrive. 🌳🌿

    1. Thanks Michele! It helps if we start small (critical thought) and then move on to the big (saying no, better choices). Life is too short to be weighed down by old lessons. More room for wonderful when we let go of what no longer serves us. 💚🍃

  3. This is beautiful. With so many lovely people in the World despite what is happening in some places, this sort of post gives me hope that things will change for the better.

      1. I *used* to test myself all the time…ridiculous! but a part of my journey, obviously. I wish that everyone would read and follow your advice! It would spare a LOT of self-inflicted, unnecessary hurts in the world and allow people do deal with what’s really going on and move past it!
