Let It Go


I was in Edmonton last weekend visiting my cousin. The above is a picture of the skating rink inside of West Edmonton Mall. Yes I did do a little shopping. 🙂

Her girls are preschool age so love the Disney movie Frozen and the song from the movie Let It Go. So … We watched the movie which I’m sure they’ve seen 20 times already and listened to the song about 20 times over the weekend. It’s a cute movie and actually a pretty good song. I came home and the song was still in my head. I then had to find it on YouTube and found myself listening to it almost everyday. My 3 year old niece came over a few days ago and wanted to watch the video of the song over and over and I really didn’t mind (haha). Had to remind myself that I was 43 and not 5! Ok but seriously I think it’s because when I actually listened to the lyrics parts of the song really struck me. It just resonated with me.

“LET IT GO” (Idina Menzel)

The snow glows white on the mountain tonight
Not a footprint to be seen
A kingdom of isolation,
And it looks like I’m the queen.

The wind is howling like this swirling storm inside
Couldn’t keep it in, heaven knows I 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 anymore
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’m free

Let it go, let it go
I am one with the wind and sky
Let it go, let it go
You’ll never see me cry

Here I stand
And here I’ll stay
Let the storm rage on

My power flurries through the air into the ground
My soul is spiraling in frozen fractals all around
And one thought crystallizes like an icy blast
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
That perfect girl is gone

Here I stand
In the light of day
Let the storm rage on,
The cold never bothered me anyway
