Here it is.

LET IT GO FOR 2003
There are people who can walk away from you. And hear me when I tell you this - when people can walk away from you: let them walk. I don't want you
to try to talk another person into staying with you, loving you, calling you, caring about you, coming to
see you, staying attached to you. I mean hang up the phone.

When people can walk away from you let them walk. Your destiny is never tied to anybody that left. The Bible said that, "they came out from us that it might be made manifest that they were not for us. For had they been of us, no doubt they would have continued with us." (1 John 2:19).

People leave you because they are not joined to you. And if they are not joined to you, you can get super
glue and you can't make them stay. Let them go. And it doesn't mean that they are a bad person it just means
that their part in the story is over. And you've got to know when people's part in your story is over so that you don't keep trying to raise the dead.

You've got to know when it's dead. You've go to know when it's over. Let me tell you something. I've got the gift of goodbye. It's the tenth spiritual gift, I believe in goodbye. It's not that I'm hateful, it's that I'm faithful, and I know what ever God means for me to have he'll give it to me. And if it takes too much sweat I don't need it. Stop begging people to stay. Let them go!!!

LET IT GO FOR 2003...
If you are holding on to something that doesn't belong to you and was never intended for your life, then you need to...let it go!

If you are holding on to past hurts and pains...let it go!

If someone can't treat you right, love you back, and see your worth...let it go!

If someone has angered you...let it go!

If you are holding on to some thoughts of evil and revenge...let it go!

If you are involved in a wrong relationship or addiction...let it go!

If you are holding on to a job that no longer meets your needs or talents...let it go!

If you have a bad attitude...let it go!

If you keep judging others to make yourself feel better...let it go!

If you're stuck in the past and God is trying to take you to a new level in Him...let it go!

If you are struggling with the healing of a broken relationship...let it go!

If you keep trying to help someone who won't even try to help themselves...let it go!

If you're feeling depressed and stressed...let it go!

If there is a particular situation that you are so used to handling yourself and God is saying "take your
hands off of it," then you need to...let it go!

Let the past be the past. Forget the former things. God is doing a new thing for 2003! LET IT GO!!!
Get right or get left...think about it, then Let it go!!!

Let God's love, peace and blessings be with you always...

The past cannot be changed...the future is still in your power!

Great post selo309. It takes practice. hard, like tossing those shoes that I haven't worn for 3 years. I realized with this move how much of my past I brought into my future with things, go figure. Not this time. I am making room for the new. I am learning to live with less, and its hard for me to accumalate again. A part of my letting go, and its funny I don't miss much. I don't have much, three forks, just bought a sharp knife, three glasses, and I remember the perfect set of china, and lead crystal, mached trash cans to the soap dish, and hand towles.Its all back there with the anger, frustration, confusion, and truly lack of what I wanted. I have serenity, and it seems to be all that I need . I have even managed to ditch the anxiety at the more month at the end of my money, go figure.
It seems to be easier to let go when I am in the present. There is all that I need, with out fear or worry, or regret. Thank you for the list

Wonder if you ladies can give me some advice on how to lighten up. I really dislike having junk. I seem to have amassed quite a bit over the last year. I remember when it would take me like an hour to move, since all I had was some clothing and a buttload of musical instruments. Things have changed, I have furniture now, and just, well, CRAP in the garage. How do I start paring down? I just get so... unmotivated...

After I separated from my husband and my stuff arrived at my new apartment. I unpacked the stuff and it was awful. I was haunted with memories of things we had purchased. I hated being in there. In the past year and a half I have either replaced or given away the things that were 'his'. I have a few things left. I moved into my new house and they are my things with my memories.

Gingerleigh - Focus on one room or closet and let that be your goal. It will give you the time you need to sort through stuff and decide what you want to keep. The stuff you don't want can be donated. It will make you feel good.

I had kept our comforter and my friends kept after me to replace it. My dog decided one day she was going to chew on it and pull all the stuffing out of the comforter. So I found a new comforter for my bed. My mom wanted to keep it, but I was determined I did not want to walk into anyones home and see it. I put in a bag and left it out for the garbage man to pick up. While I was working in the yard I kept noticing a construction worker walking back and forth down the street. He finally stopped and asked if I was going to throw the blanket away and I said yes. He asked if he could have it and I told him that it was torn. He said that he didn't mind, that his wife could sew it up.

I like the idea of "simplefying" my life. I left home with only what was necessary and it sustained me. I since went back to clean out the house and honest to God after bagging about 50 black trash bags, I hadn't made a dent. What the hell was all this shit??? Then I had to pay a trash hauler who pulled out of the driveway like the beverly hillbillies, filled to the top. I took my marriage candle, the one we would light each year on our anniversay, out of my trunk the other day and was headed for the trash can. My cell phone rang and I told my girlfriend what I was about to do...she said no, maybe keep it for my daughter, it only took me a second and I opened the trash can and in it went. She doesn't need it and that part of my life is over. I kept all my pics, that is the most painful, so I boxed them up and put them away to not go back to and keep reliving the pain. I will no doubt collect new junk and new memories, on my terms this time. Good Luck to you.

Its good to have a fresh start and the ability to make new memories. I had a cake top that is part of the Precious Moments figurines I collect. I have over 50 in my collection and they aren't on display in my house. I don't know what I want to do with them. My ex gave me many of the figurines. So until I am ready to pull them out, they are fine where they are.
