So many of the lyrics make me want to ask who was in my head when they were writing it.
A kingdom of isolation and it looks like I'm the Queen.
It's funny how some distance makes everything seem small
Let it go, the perfect girl is gone.
In an effort to embrace more honesty in my life I'm going to try more to LET. IT. GO. And to let the fears that once controlled me not get to me at all. There's a greater truth here in this song that resonates with me so, and that is the more that we live in our truth, the more free we are. Elsa is only trapped in so long as she is scared of the power within her. If she embraces the power, that power she knows can hurt, she also has the power to make something truly beautiful and amazing.
What's inside me can be scary. It's got power. It can hurt. It hurts me, I'm afraid of the knowledge (which is my power) that lies in there. I'm afraid that it could cause pain to those I love. I'm afraid to share my knowledge, because of the power that it carries. It could hurt me more to share it. So I keep it inside. But the more I walk toward that power, without fear, the greater chance I have to make something beautiful.
Elsa's ice castle was a work of art. We see the awe of all who observe its magnificence. The story that I want to write, the one inside me is terrifying. Every time I have set fingers to a keyboard to work on it I feel electrically repulsed from writing it. And the shock for me comes from inside my soul. The risk doesn't seem worth it. There's danger here. But it could be perhaps that power is always both beautiful and dangerous. And more dangerous when we try to hide it.
And perhaps like the fictional Elsa, and so many more courageous real people, I'll let it go. I'll let go of concealing, I'll begin feeling. I'll stop holding back. I'll trust that the power has a beauty and that it is worth the risk.
It's time to see what I can do
