Thank you to KP Simmon for setting today up! Here’s a little info on what has inspired this event:
#LetITGo day all stemmed from Ann Aguirre’s title, I WANT IT THAT WAY. One of the characters finds freedom when he lets something go that he had been holding on to. In the book, you see him physically do something to represent the act of letting it go and then finding peace. While reading, the wheels started turning! We all need to have a day to let things go. We’ve all had those moments when things play over and over in our head, when we hear the whispers of being told we’re not good enough, when we find ourselves paralyzed by something. Some of us are affected by this in ways we think others could not possibly understand. So…#LetItGo day was formed. In the midst of ugly and dark things happening all around, we want to focus on freedom and finding peace. And September 3rd, 2014 is that day. The sky is the limit in how you want to celebrate and share it with your readers and followers on your blog and social media. Tell what freedom and peace mean to you, Tell about a time you had to #LetItGo, take pics of you doing a #LetItGo ceremony. Whatever…but this world has a lot of heartache. And we don’t have to hold on to things. We want freedom and peace to reign! So join in on September 3rd and #LetItGo!
“You are only as happy as you make up your mind to be.”
These were words of advice that my father gave to me as a young child, and they’ve always stayed with me. During difficult and challenging times, I’ve often set the saying to scroll across my computer or have written it on paper as a reminder. When I saw KP’s note about #LetItGo Day, I thought about how perfectly the two tie into together. Whenever self-doubt, negativity, anger, hurt, jealousy, etc. sneak up on you, try to remind yourself…You are only as happy as you make up your mind to be, so just #LetItGo.
