“I was only able to get over my past when I decided I was going to. As I’ve discovered, that’s how everything starts. I decided to get out of bed this morning. I decided to get ready for work. Everything I did today was because I made a decision. Although we can’t set ourselves free, getting up and making a decision to move on from our past is a step in the right direction.” — Corallie Buchanan
You may be a product of your past, but you don’t have to be reduced by it. You may be wounded but you aren’t broken. You have scars, but they aren’t a sign of weakness. They’re a sign that you’ve survived. They’re evidence of your strength. And proof of your ability to heal. You can’t go back and change what happened in the past, But you can start today and create a new future. You can’t erase your pain, but you can learn from it. You can use it to grow and move forward. You’ve done the best you could with the resources you’ve been given.
Every day we are faced with a choice, to get through the open door of endless possibilities (future) or get stuck in the past. Don’t make the mistake of getting stuck in your past. It’s important to be able to reference it from time to time to learn from any mistakes and failures, but you must move on.
Your future is still yet to be determined and the only way to ensure that you will be the architect, creating a masterpiece of your desire, is by looking forward.
The perfect moment to start the next chapter of your life, trust in yourself and your abilities. Create new goals and dreams for your future and get busy doing. You can design a life full of adventure, love, and happiness.
So It’s time to let go of the past. It’s time to forgive yourself. Time to release the blame and resentment. Time to let go of the self-destructive thoughts that keep you stuck. And time to fill yourself with thoughts of hope that help you to see the promise of a new day. The past is over and it no longer has to dictate your present.
“Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, you must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.” — Mary Manin Morrissey
Today you’re free. Free to be your authentic self.Free to love. Free to forgive. Free to begin your life’s journey. You may feel hopeless and defeated, imprisoned by your past choices. But your prison’s walls are not impenetrable. The only true limitations on you are those you’ve placed on yourself. Your potential is limitless. The memories of your past exists to provide growth and healing. To move you forward.
So today Allow your chains to be broken. Let in the light. You are free. Now and forever.
Today you take flight….
