Sunday Inspiration: Let It Go!

Let it go

“If someone has offended you, insulted you, or disappointed you, LET IT GO! If you are remembering all the ways you have been hurt or forgotten, let it go! Ask yourself, what good does it do for me to hold on to this?” –Iyanla Vanzant from

Today’s quote is in honor of the High Holy Days now being celebrated by Jews around the world. This is also a time to reflect on those whom we have hurt or harmed during the past year and to seek forgiveness.

Not your faith or tradition? Don’t worry. This is a worthy practice for people of all religions and one of my favorite religious holidays and messages.

Who do we need to forgive? What past hurts and insults do we need to release? Let it go. If we can’t, why not? Are we better, happier, healthier for holding our painful past so close?

My thanks to one of the world’s great religions for this welcome reminder.
