Letting Go by Ashleigh

Let go
Of all that shit
That is holding you back
Let go of fear
Let go of uncertainty
Let go of anger
Let the unpredictable be just that
Let go of your need for control of things you cannot control
Hold on to your truths

Let go
Breathe deeper
And let go
Of course the future is unknown
Of course things will change
Change is not a curse
Change is a blessing
Today, you can start embracing change as you

Let go
Listen to love
Listen with love
Don’t be afraid to love
In order to love…you must let go of your pain
Of your fears
Of your need to hold on so tight you suffocate
Love freely
Love beautifully
Love wholey
You will see a difference
