Always look ahead. Move forward. Take the steps necessary to move onward.
If the past holds hurt and pain for you, let it go. It does not bring good into your life. You are not defined by your past. You define your future.
Start FRESH. Today is a new day full of possibilities and hope.
I’ve had some horrible things happen in my past. I held onto it like a badge of honour, but it brought pain and darkness into my life. I needed to let it go. Forgiveness doesn’t mean you forget. It means finding the freedom to say that the past can’t hurt you anymore. It means giving yourself permission to release the anger and the pain. Let it go. Celebrate the freedom in that.
When you release the pain, you will move forward. You can’t help it.
Look at all the beauty around you! It’s everywhere. Find JOY in the little things…like the hot sun after a long winter, the beauty and life brought on after a May rain, the tender hugs my kids give me even after I yell at them to clean their room.
Life is a gift. Life is good. Count your blessings and forget the pain of yesterday.
I can’t say this enough, but you have the power to be exactly who you want to be. The power to be that person falls in your lap and it’s up to you to make it happen. It’s all you baby 🙂
