…there are times when it takes much more strength to know when to let go…

Detail of Let GoArtist Statement

Life's ebb and flow, at one point or another, brings us to a significant place where change and transformation can occur if we let go of whatever holds us back or weighs us down—like control, expectations, toxic relationships, or fear.

At times, we may feel like we're drowning in despair, defeat, or disappointment. But hope remains alive. If we somehow muster the courage to reach through the breakers, a tiny lifeline of hope reaches back to keep us afloat.

How we chart our course until the next rising tide is up to us. The choice is ours. But we will experience a new level of peace and soul healing if we release the past or the present and begin to let go.
