Life Getting You Down

Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

When life is getting you down,
And you feel as if you might drown.
Hold on tight, and start to fight,
And eventually you won't want to frown.

Life is not always easy,
It can sometimes make us feel queasy.
We can change that, but it'll take a strong hat,
It's up to you to make your life dreamy.

So take your life in your hands,
And make a new set of plans.
Life can be great, if you stop with the hate,
And make changes every way you can.

Past hurts move beyond them
This piece of advice is a hidden gem:
Once you let go forward you move
And you will find life will start to improve.

Letting Go
Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

Sometimes in life,
Things don't go your way.
They make you frustrated,
And unhappy through your day.

There are many things,
That could help you see through,
To what could be helpful,
And give a new point of view.

But sometimes those tricks,
Are just a misguide.
And all you really need,
is to let go and not take sides.

Lay down and close your eyes,
And think only good.
Maybe what's needed is a compromise
Let go and find yourself in a better mood.

Best Advice
Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2018

Thre are times in life that the best advice
Is to pick up the pieces and just be nice
Fighting and screaming does no good
It just reflects a negative attitude.

What goes around comes around
It is a true saying I have found.
The best advice is to let it go
And not let your hurt and anger show.

Most times letting go is hard to do
But hanging on and being blue
Hurts you more than any
And that is worth less than a penny!

Les Brown

I know I'm not the first mother who's found it hard to let go, who's yearned for change only to resist it when it comes, who's found it painful at times to accept the fact that my sons are pulling away, moving out into lives of their own. Nor will I be the last.

Life Is Too Short

Breathing in would be worthless without its opposite of exhaling; think of letting go as learning to take part in the breath of life itself, something that is as natural to who you truly are as it is for the sun to shine.
