Oh, that's an interesting idea for a website.

But the first balloon I clicked on, the person was apparently hoping to let go of "life", which, hrm. Not so uplifting.

Oh god no. I also saw "my bastard children" which was equally depressing.

This came at a very good time for me. Thanks, it is nice to see the balloon you submit get smaller and float out of range. This seems a lot like the visualization techniques they have you try in yogic meditation but it's nice to have a physical image instead of just a mental one.

That's what I liked about it, rmless. I wish you could follow the balloon longer so it really disappears like a pinpoint.

Another visualization I like is to imagine your concern or trouble being placed in a small paper boat, then putting it into the water and pushing it gently out to see and watching it float over the horizon.

Yeah, the ones I use are bubbles with your problems in them floating and popping at the surface of a pool or your problems are leaves you throw into a river which carries them off

Crap, I dropped my mouse!

This doesn't work with my keys, either, Eide.

I just turned 8 years old. I wrote "Poop" on a balloon, and I giggled. But I left it white, to stay slightly mature, so maybe I'm 9.

I like it.

I just want to watch the balloons float away all day.

I like this too. It's... calming.

I got one that said "opossum". Puzzling, but true.

Yes, you should not hold onto opossums. You don't know where they've been, and when they'll want to bite you (because they will).

I saw someone who let go of: "Overthinking".


In all my years I don't think I've ever heard that word used anywhere else.

Here are a few I just saw.

"Trying to contain my hate for Armenian designers."
"Skittles. I am not sure they are what a rainbow really tastes like."
...and I saw "poop" go by.
