Letting Go

My cousin turned me onto Chookooloonks some months ago. I subscribe to the newsletter. Karen is very inspiring. Today she started a self discovery (online) path for people from all over the world called Path Finders. As I might have mentioned before I have been struggling with what to do with my life/future for 2 years now, since losing a job that I had given my all to for 3 years. I came across this quote when cleaning out my email inbox and thought how fitting it was to start my journey and hope that I will be better about posting every day here with one of my pictures.


Dear God,
Please untie the ‘knots’ that are in my mind, my heart and my life.
Remove the have-nots, the can-nots and the do-nots that I have in my mind.
Erase the will-nots, may-nots and might-nots that may find a home in my heart.
Release me from the could-nots, would-nots and should-nots that obstruct my life.
And most of all, dear God, I ask that you remove from my mind, my heart and my life all of the am-nots that I have allowed to hold me back, especially the thought that I am not good enough.

One thought on “Letting Go

  1. Hi Alicia,
    I see we’re going to be classmates in “Find Your Eye”. I just took a peek at the blog and really enjoyed it. I decided to leave a comment on this particular post because it touched my heart. I really love the poem. Your photos are really great. You do have a special eye. I know I will learn a lot from all the people in class. I’m really a newbie with photography.
    See you in class.
