Last week my 3-year-old grandson Ollie came to my house to play. He immediately asked to listen to the song “Let it Go” from the movie “Frozen.” I’ve heard the song before, but I had never really heard it.

I pulled it up on YouTube so we could watch and listen to it at the same time. To my surprise, Ollie knew all the words and bellowed out the song. For me, that was the first time I really listened to its meaning.

That afternoon I read the lyrics to my NLP class without letting them know that they were from the movie “Frozen.” Each one basically said that the words described how they felt in their life either in the past or even now.

I invite you to really listen to some of the lyrics of the song “Let it Go”:

“…The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside,

Couldn’t keep it in; heaven knows I’ve tried.

Don’t let them in, don’t let them see, be the ‘good’ girl you always have to be.

Conceal, don’t feel; don’t let them know…

Well, now they know…Let it go, let it go.

Can’t hold it back any more…Let it go, let it go.

Turn away and slam the door, I don’t care what they’re going to say.

Let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway.

It’s funny how some distance makes everything seem small,

and the fears that once controlled me can’t get to me at all. 

It’s time to see what I can do, to test the limits and break through. 

No right, no wrong, no rules for me, I am one with the wind and sky. I’m Free!

…I’m never going back; the past is in the past. Let it go, let it go.

And I’ll rise like the break of dawn, let it go, let it go, the ‘perfect’ girl is gone. 

Here I stand in the light of day. Let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway….”

How many of you can relate to those words?

Well instead of waiting for the storm to pass, go out and dance in the rain. Never give your power away as others won’t use it right. Take the power yourself to create your dreams. Always belief in yourself and surround yourself with others who believe in you.
