Every Friday, Lisa-Jo Baker hosts Five Minute Friday. What is it? Check out the rules here then come back and read my post.Release

Today, the word is….RELEASE

I think that we have all been hurt by someone. People will let us down. If this isn’t you, then you probably have superficial relationships and you don’t need to read on.

I think there are things we need to release and things to hold on to.

What to release:

  • Fear
  • Resentment
  • Unforgiveness
  • Anxiety
  • Anger
  • Hurt
  • Expectations (sometimes)

What to hold tight to

  • Faith
  • Hope
  • Trust that good can be done from this
  • Love

What can you find

  • Freedom–we can be free to breath and live and laugh.
  • Happiness–maybe not right away. It might take some getting used to, but you can be happy.

Be blessed 🙂

  1. Hi Jennifer,
    I just tried to comment and it didn’t go through so hopefully this doesn’t happen twice. 🙂

    I love the lists of what to let go of/hold on to. Absolutely beautiful. It’s sometimes hard to do, but you are right that in the end it leads to much more happiness than if we were to hold on to the negatives.

    Very good job, Jennifer. Well-reasoned post. I could probably benefit from the discipline but don’t see me doing well in such short form. Being a perfectionist, I would be cheating the time left and right.
