Autumn Inspirational Printable Letting Go

I’ve mentioned before that I like to surround myself with things that have meaning for me whether it’s a painting by my father, my grandmother’s “ear bobs”, or words from scripture or a hymn. This time of year is perfect for a daily reminder for a healthy outlook on life. Letting go of the past can be difficult. Events like a problem in a close relationship, a perceived failure or bad decision, or a really bad experience can disrupt our lives. Lingering feelings of anger, doubt, grief, or guilt can rob of us of happiness.

There are ways to address the lingering effects of past experiences. This may involve practicing self-compassion, trying mindfulness as a way of focusing on the present moment, or talking with a friend or a professional to explore unresolved feelings.

Autumn is here. Slowly the trees change as leaf colors transition to brown. Some of the most colorful leaves are pure joy to view. The tree no longer feeds the leaves until they release them. Many of us love this season. and now it’s time to be a tree. Whatever is lingering in your life and is no longer serving a good purpose, let it go. Be free. You’ll have more energy to grow in the future.

Autumn teaches us the

beauty of letting go.

  1. Such good advice Carol! We have a tryptich painting on our wall here in Oregon that maybe is by that same artist. We bought it for a long empty wall in our apartment specifically because it reminds us that rainy days can be beautiful. (In ours the couple is walking in a park, not specifically Paris like yours, but the technique and bright colors and umbrella are so similar. ( Hoping this comment works, just in case I’ll FB it. )

    1. I got your comment without a problem. I also check last week after your comment on FB said you couldn’t comment. Your comment was right there. I don’t know what my blog is telling you when you comment, but I’m getting the comments. Thank you!

  2. What a beautiful piece! And the sentiment is, too. Pinned. Visiting from Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop.

      1. Of course. 🙂 Thank you for sharing this post at the Will Blog for Comments #13 linkup, too. Hope to see you there again next week!

  3. Carol, this is such an inspirational post. I love the message especially “Lingering feelings of anger, doubt, grief, or guilt can rob of us of happiness.” That is so true. With the state of affairs in the world, I have been so consumed with sadness and fear the I didn’t realize it is as you say, robbing me of my happiness. I’m going to make a conscious effort to focus on good things as much as possible right now. Thanks

    1. I totally understand your feelings. All the hate and violence in the world can be overwhelming. I feel it hurts my soul. Since I’m an optimist, I’m always trying to find more positive affirmations of life. Happy Saturday!

  4. These printables are so lovely, Carol! We miss you at Tuesday Turn About, and we’d love to be placed on your weekly link-up schedule again! Hope to see you there! Visiting from the new Will Blog for Comments party. 🙂

    1. Your linky party is still on the list. Life has been insane the last few months. I’m blogging less and linking up less. I’ve been working to get my house ready to list – listing went live yesterday. Now I’m praying it sells fast so I can find a condo to buy. I’m not really doing much for the holidays – there’s too much to do! Thanks for missing me and I’ll go drop by the party. Carol
