Inspiration: Release...

"You leave old habits behind by starting out with the thought, 'I release the need for this in my life'"  Wayne Dyer

Inspiration: Release...

Small Stones #14
Release what no longer serves you...
The plans we make to change
The ideas and wishes...
Wash them away
Release the need...

Today, for my Small Stones #14, I am using one of the words on a list from Mamakat's weekly prompts.
Release is a word I've had to mull over a lot.

More below!

"Secrecy involves a tension which, at the moment of revelation, finds its release." Georg Simmel
Inspiration: Release...

Small Stones #7
Holding on to tired, old ideas
Like tired, old shoes...
Pretending they are new
Who do we really fool?
Time to embrace the revelation

What are small stones?
  According to the originators of this wonderful exercise, a small stone is a short piece of writing (prose or poetry) that precisely captures a fully-engaged moment. The process of discovering small stones is as important as the finished product. Searching for small stones will encourage you to keep all your senses; - your eyes,(and ears, nose, mouth, fingers, feelings and mind) open.

Some Food for Thought: How are you releasing what no longer serves you?  Take a moment to contemplate what release means to you? Love and Peace in 2013.

I would love to hear from you: Please leave me a comment. Thank You!

  1. Sometimes we make plans and then other stuff happens and we just have to release our plans... God knows best. Spent the day in the hospital with a loved one and had to release my worries to the creator. Blessings to all!

  2. just the word im trying to look since yesterday... :-) iv been reorganizing my email and came across lots of old ones that used to hurt me and made me hate some people... :-) im glad im finally over all that... released, yes i am... :D

  3. Great photos of the watery scenes. I have lots of wooded areas near me with babbling brooks trickling through them and as such can walk through these and admire all the wildlife and scenery

  4. Hi Promding! I hear you.. we all need to release stuff and when we do, the feeling is great! TY! :)
