How many times do we hear the expression “let go”? I’m certain it is the two most commonly used words assuring us that it is the only way to move past our past. Begin the healing process. And learn how it’s all rooted in forgiveness. I remember the fist time I heard the other most commonly used expression, “let go and let God.” It’s pretty powerful to say the least but do we know what that really means and more do we have the ability to hand over every uncertainty? Every struggle. And every pain that our hearts ache to seek refuge from? You can’t let go until you know what it means to surrender and you can’t surrender until you’re willing to let go of that which you refuse to hand over. The truth is, for most of my life I truly believed that I laid it all down. I handed it all over. And I surrendered it all to God. Now I know I haven’t because I can still feel the grip I hold on the lowest points in my life. True surrender is feeling that grip soften so much that it’s no longer in your hands and feeling at peace because of it. How many of us are truly capable of that kind of trust? Faith. And belief that the universe will work in our favor if we allow it to? The problem is that our minds are constantly trying to project the outcome. It’s human nature to do so. We continue to think we are letting go until we literally find ourselves on our knees. Unwillingly to fight with our minds. And facing the truth that another unknown path is needed. That’s where true surrender begins. It begins when we can no longer think or see our way through where we are. It begins when we are ready. When control fades away and take us with it. The path itself is excruciating because it’s the realization that we don’t know if things will get better or worsen. We just know that’s it’s coupled with a sense of peace. That it’s not something we can fix. And that it’s no longer up to us. Yes, it’s excruciating but it also reaps clarity. When we give up on the notion that we can control the desired outcome of our lives, we’re able to rise into the present moment. What life is right now. And acknowledge that the present moment is all we have any say over. (👇🏻con’t in first comment)

I keep seeing pictures of bodies - all bodies - and faces - all faces - with no filters and no extras and I think it's such a beautiful thing. Just skin and wrinkles and gray and what I think honesty looks like. I keep telling myself I'm just as beautiful without makeup as much as with it and then someone comes along and comments that I look tired - only in the times I'm not wearing mascara - and I start rethinking it all. I love painting my eyes and seeing them pop. I also love not putting on a lick of anything or only some lip color. I can be both. I want to embrace the me that is more freeing though and for now, I am feeling that part out. #heartwrds #mgmiswriting #morgangemaymarks #womenwhowrite #writersofinstagram #writersofig #writingcommunity #writeyourselfalive #poetsofig #poetrycommunity #writeitout #wordsmith #spilledink #hearmeroar #wordshavepower #heartwords #thesoapboxcommunity #heartspace #revolutionoftheheart #poetryisnotdead #herheartpoetry #defineyourjourney #poetryofinstagram #poetryismyvoice #walkingmyselfhome #worldofpoets #shelived #magicalmundane #sheisnotlost #allheart

When you are living the moment you don’t know when it is going to become a memory but what we must always know is that a memory can always turn into an ache and sometimes we miss memories more than a person because those moments meant so much to us that we never thought of them as anything but pure bliss . . . . . #poets #avoicefromfaraway #untwineme #omypoetry #wordporn #abodeofpoets #heartofpoets #poetrytribe #poetry #artofpoets #globalwordsmiths #poetsofinstagram #igpoets #writersofinstagram #heartwrds #herheartpoetry #thewriterslounge #thewritingspook #bymepoetry #bymepoetryasia #worldwidepoetry #madewords #globalpoetscult #artlixirpoetry #worldofpoets #writers #writerscommunity #realisticstories

Give yourself the time you need. Let the rain fall within you. . Fill your lungs to the brim And deflate them again, As many times as it takes To bring the pressure off your chest. . Pain wasn’t meant to be hidden. It was meant to be let out. In screams. In tears. In slumped over shoulders, In exasperated sighs. . Don’t be too busy Trying to hide what you’re feeling To allow yourself to feel it. . Feeling is healing. . And isn’t that what it is all about? 🖤 . . . #communityofpoetry #poemsoninstagram #newcopoetry #poetrylovers #writerscommunity #communityofpoets #poetrycommunity #poetrysociety #poetsoninstagram #poemsofinstagram #poemsociety #thecultivatedmind #selfcareposts #motivationalquotes #spilledwords #womenwriters #bleedingsoulpoetry #artofpoets #writersofinstagram #writerslife #writersconnection #writersociety #writersconnect #heartwrds #thoughtfvl #herheartpoetry #omypoetry #untwineme #poetrygram #bymepoetry
