A Sign from Above

After days of riding my erratic emotional roller coaster, I was having a hard time holding ‘it’ together. I felt like I was moving in a fog of depression, stuck in a limbo of indecision.

I wanted a change but didn’t know exactly what to do and I was exhausting myself with all of the possibilities.

And that’s when I got the sign from above.

Let Go, Let God

That was the message staring back at me from the license plate holder of the car in front of me at a red light. And it took me a second to realize just how familiar the message was.

In fact, it was one of my mom’s favorites and she often reminded me of the saying during tough times.

So like I had done many times before, I released all of my frustration and stress and depression upwards…and immediately felt lighter.

It’s been three days since and I haven’t gotten any more signs from above but I know that I’m on the right path and things will be clearer soon. The first step I needed to take was in acknowledging that I couldn’t take on all of this alone.


  1. I love this! I was once in one of my funks and I got a "message from above" that went like this: Don't be so hard on yourself and suddenly I felt tons lighter:)

  2. I love it!!

    I don't know why some of us are more prone than others to be wracked with indecision and guilt...but I often get too down on myself, especially when I worry about the future and want to plan out everything in my life. For me, it's comforting to know that I can turn over my anxiety to someone else...and that I don't have to figure it all out alone!
