Letting go is sometimes harder than one can imagine. It is not easy to let go when we have been wronged or when we have lost something precious. As hard as it is, hanging on is not going to bring about better results. Whatever has happened has already happened. It is in the past. Hanging on to that hurt or loss incurred will cause more harm to us than to others. This series of clay balloons is entitled, 'Let it Go'. I had a teacher colleague who used to say that whatever is troubling you, put it in a balloon and let it go! Such aa wise statement!!
"Sometimes letting things go is an act of greater power than hanging on." Ekhart Tolle
There is a lot of truth in this statement. I recall aa Buddha quote saying that holding on to anger or grudges is like holding on to a burning coal. It will burn the holder first before s/he throws it at someone else.
This is the inspiration behind the creation of this series of balloons. They are different colours and sizes but the message is the same. Hence, putting our worries in a balloon and letting them flaot away will bring internal peace.

Knowing where one wants to go, setting the goal and focusing on it are important in order to succeed. If one can eliminate distractions and stay focused on a single goal, success is not hard to attain. Sometimes it takes a young six-year old to remind us of this. It is based on a true story.
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
