Hold On

It is day 2 of the 30 minus 2 days of writing hosted by Nicky and Mike of  We Work For Cheese.  This is written for the prompt "Hold On".  Check out the list on Nicky's post to see who else is holding on.

Hold on
to your dreams
to your beliefs
to your goals
to yourself

Let go
of your fears
of your worries
of your problems
of yourself

your talents
your uniqueness
your imagination


  1. Inspiring words for a Saturday morning. Nice.

  2. I love this! I'm gonna print this off and put it on the fridge where it gets the spot of honor. I needed this today.

  3. Simple and eloquent. Love it!

  4. Rally lovely and a nice thought to hold on to...

  5. Hey Linda! The "Let Go" advice, all of it, was given to me by a close and trusted friend recently; it's something I need to work on. Thank you for the reminder. Indigo

  6. This is so lovely, Linda. Wise words to live by written by a very wise and talented lady.

  7. Such wonderful and inspiring words, Linda. :)

    (And if MikeWJ says something rude about the image, just ignore him.)

  8. That may just be enough inspiration to keep me in this little contest for a few more days! Thanks, Linda!

  9. I'm actually really choked up.... that is beautiful.

  10. This is inspirational, isn't it?

    Did anyone alert you that I'm a chronic insomniac with a dozen billion health issues and with a long, drawn-out pre-divorce situation?

    Yeah...I think not! ;)

    Inspiration my butt! See? I can do bowel humour, too. :)

  11. This really was excellent. I liked reading it. Nice work!

  12. What the hell are those creatures on the door doing to one another? Holding on, I assume.

    This is wrong. Very wrong.

  13. nonamedufus- Thank you!

    Jen- Thank you. I think it's something we all need more of.

    Nicky- Thank you!

    laughingmom- still holding on! ;)

    Indigo Roth- You are most welcome. I have things to work on too.

    Jayne- I thank you for that lovely compliment.

    Ziva- Thank you, and thanks for the warning.

    Paula- It's all about holding on. We can do it...I know we can.

    Katherine- Thank you. That means a lot to me.

    Mariann Simms- It is supposed to be inspirational, but we all take different things from what we read.

    P. J.- Thanks so much.

    MikeWJ- I was warned about you. ;) But just to clear things up here. It's a mother Manatee and her baby - holding on.

  14. Linda, I LOVE this post! Thank you for giving me some inspiration today!

  15. Succinct, but sweet. Very lovely sentiment.

    Also, I too think of manatees when I'm thinking about the importance of holding on.

  16. Meleah- You're welcome. Check around Monday for a friendly quote.

    KZ- Thanks, glad you enjoyed it. Manatees are large, gentle creatures. I saw some once in Sarasota (I forget the name of the place right now.) They are amazing.

  17. Nicely written. I like the message and way you interpreted this prompt. Plus that a really cool picture and fits the prompt perfectly.
