Letting go

Write your woes on a virtual balloon and let it take off.

There are many cathartic ways to get over something and move on. One may take up yoga, drink away sorrows, burn images while ritualistically chanting naked (not that we’ve done that). Or you could write your frustrations on a balloon and let it fly into the wind. Don’t have an actual balloon or the patience to fill it with helium? Visit LetSomethingGo.com and take advantage of their virtual balloons in an array of colours. The website, created by Magic Box Films, is a volunteer-led project. Simply write your woes on the balloon and away it goes. Add a photo or video if you’re feeling brave. Feel better? No? Then you can browse the stuff others have purged and hopefully realize you and your worries are not alone.
