I sketched this about two years ago and was thinking about this sketch recently.  I decided to re-sketch it and paint it.  It makes me consider the things in my life that might actually be harming me that I choose to hold onto.  Those things are like a vine wrapping tighter and tighter around one’s heart and soul squeezing the life and joy right out.  My encouragement today is, “Let them go.  Just open your hand and let them go.”

    Very nice! We all have to think about these kinds of things. Thanks for the reminder! 🙂

    Oh SUCH a poignant sentiment! Yes, open you heard and let the bad out (so more good can take residence). I love how the vine symbolizes that. Plus, it reminds me of an infinity symbol that can easily be fed and just as easily “released.” This really spoke to me!
