Deborah Tindle "Significance of Balloons"

Balloons have many metaphorical meanings. Balloons can be used to describe both holding on and letting go.

“There are times in life when people must know when not to let go. Balloons are designed to teach small children this.” Terry Pratchett

“There are times in life when people must know WHEN to let go. Balloons teach us this.” Deborah Tindle


Balloons signify trying to hold onto something but also signify letting go. A balloon that escapes your grasp and is unable to be retrieved is a very sinking, empty, and scary feeling– it’s lost into the wild blue yonder, never to be seen or touched again. With life, holding onto something that is not staying with you by choice (tugging on the balloon strings, so to speak), is also very sinking, empty, and scary feeling… that is until you let it go and feel how freeing the release is. Sometimes we struggle so hard to keep something or someone with us, that we don’t see that the answer lies in letting go. Blush’s lyrics point to this, “Embrace the light, the silence will be broken once you face your fright. Reflection of the being who you are inside who shines so bright and get you up and away.” Blush Up Up and Away

Also, with the past, many times people focus on the past to the point that the past brings them down. Take the balloon strings and fly up and away with the balloon– past the past and into the now. Those experiences and people from the past who weigh you down need to be left behind. Float up and away into the heights of happiness and sunshine of today… the now. As Kid Cudi so eloquently puts it, “up up and away ’cause they’re gonna judge me anyway so whatever.” Kid Cudi Up Up and Away

  3. It’s no secret that most men only want one thing, right?

    Well it turns out that’s not only wrong, but may actually be the root of many failed relationships.

    In fact, the one thing men are universally obsessed with...

    Is actually a feeling he’s been chasing his whole life.

    It’s an elusive combination of emotion and biological drive that’s rarely satisfied in life or love.
