Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you’ve probably heard about the newest animated Disney movie “Frozen” and its Oscar nominated song “Let It Go”. I have a confession: I avoid popular things on principle. Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Game of Thrones, all things that I avoided because they were *shudder* popular. It’s silly I know, and not too long ago I realized that I do things like that to create a barrier between myself and others. Yay for self-realization! So back to the story, I had no intention of paying much attention to this new song that everyone was talking about until I noticed why they were loving it.
I was reading comments about how this song represented to them coming out with their sexuality, embracing their sensuality, discovering their spiritual beliefs, realizing how they wanted to change the world, letting go of bad relationships or forced expectations.
I had to listen to the song to learn why.
It was instant love. Sometimes the masses are right. I’ve spent the last few days listening to this song as I get ready for work, belting it out in front of the mirror as I do my hair and brush my teeth, letting it go, whatever it is for me in the moment. It’s my new favorite mantra. Let it go. Let it go. I think that the reason it resonates so deeply is because we all have something that we want to let go of. We want the exhilaration of breaking away from it and not only surviving, but being empowered.
So I’d love for you to share!
Do you identify with the song? Why? What do you want to let go of?

when i listen to the song i think of my life as a single parent with two children (now adults) both of whom have special needs and my own struggle with depression…with the internal thinking of what others think of me…as a single person…as person who has two special needs children (now adults)..my own internal dialogue does my head in some days and the song reminds me to let it all go and just do what i need to do
I'm doing my best to let go of letting my fear hold me back. I just applied to go back to school and finish my psychology degree after 15 years! Excited and terrified and not letting anything hold me back :D
I am on my journey to freedom from the chains that bind me. The chains I put on myself. The chains that I allowed others to put on me. It is slow and there are days that I fall apart because I can't make it happen any sooner, and the end is still far from my reach. BUT, I am moving forward and I am making plans for myself and my dreams. Even if I have to give up everything to be the person God made me to be. And like the song, Let it go, let it all go. I am getting there. Slow and steady wins the race. Im scared, I have fears and I am again, scared I will fail. Scared I can't do it. But I wont allow fear to rule me anymore. I love who I am becoming and I am so very blessed. I am strong. I can do this.
