Learning to Let It Go

October 09, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Last week, we got to go to the Zac Brown Band concert thanks to a really great friend of ours. I had been looking forward to this concert for a while because they are my favorite band since my first love, *NSync (yes, I was a teeny-bopper. Don’t judge :))

Aside from being insanely talented vocalists/instrument players and truly loving what their doing, their songs hold quite a bit of meaning and have very deep underlying messages. One song in particular strikes a cord with me: Let It Go.

I wanted to write about this today for a couple of reasons:

- There have been some things that have been weighing heavy on my heart lately.

- I think many people can relate to what it feels like to be burdened by certain situations.

I know this song definitely helps me settle my mind and put some things in perspective, so I hope that by sharing it and writing about it, it can do the same for you.

“Keep your heart above your head and your eyes wide open so this world can’t find a way to keep you cold. Know you’re not the only ship out on the ocean. Save your strength for things that you can change, forgive the ones you can’t. You gotta let it go.”

Thanks to these helpful lyrics along with the words of my close and dear friends around me, I have learned that there are certain things in your life that you will come by that you have no control of, people who will do you wrong, and people who’s true colors show when different circumstances arise.

Although the message is clear and simple, it is in no way an easy task. Being an incredibly sensitive soul, I can honestly say I can get very affected and hurt even though it may or may not be my fault. Thanks to those who care for me and are truly good people, I am able to  calm down a bit and understand what I need to think about.

In the end, you cannot control some people’s actions, you cannot change somebody unless they want to change, and you cannot stop life from happening. So, there is no use in worrying about the things you have no control over.

There’s simply only one thing you can do to free yourself from that burden of stress and anger:

 Let It Go

Even if you’re not a huge country or southern rock type music listener, they are insanely talented musicians who have succeeded because they do what they love!
