No Worries

Try letting go ....

and see what happens.

Skyward view through my magical Live Oak as I float along on my homemade swing.


  1. What a freeing concept Maria. Letting go. Why is it that we have such a hard time with this? We tend to want to grab on and cling and hold tightly, mostly to things we really do need to let go of.

    Live oaks...beautiful.

    Floating along on your homemade that is bliss. And reminds me of a simpler time in life...when letting go was so much easier.

    You've given me something to ponder today!

  2. Letting go is a healthy thing to frees the soul and enhances your spirit.

  3. Oh, this is perfect. And what a memory it brings me.
    A long time ago, I'd left my husband. Our children were very young. I stayed away almost a year. Got my own place, went forward with my life. Damn him.
    But slowly, we began talking together again. And it culminated in me returning to our home with the children. My husband's gift to me was a swing that he put in the big tree for me. A swing? Sit on it and swing, he told me. You won't believe how good it feels.
    And I did. And he was right. And every time I felt like I needed to get away, that swing was waiting for me.
    Maria, thanks for this memory. I needed that today, my friend.

  4. beautiful memories - i love to swing even now

    but letting go is so hard sometimes.

  5. it's amazing how hard it is to give up control. i struggle with it each day!

  6. I exhaled when I read that-and the photo suits so well.

  7. What a lovely way to be and if I am not reading too much into your photo, you seem to have a nice swirling circle created by the branches.

  8. Yeah! Glad your still using the swing...
    and letting goooo

  9. Letting go is good...follow your heart...and swing high :)

  10. A wonderful thought to share!
    Thanks Maria

  11. I love swings. I found one in a public park recently and had the best time! It felt so free & fun & playful to just swing. I couldn't keep the smile off my face.
