I feel liberated when I release the past. I let go of memories that would hold me back, and put the past to rest.
I develop compassion for those who may have harmed me. I try to understand their position and wish them well, even if I disagree with their actions.
I come to terms with loss. Life is full of transitions. I make the most of my experiences and relationships while they last. I am comfortable with beginnings and endings.
I learn from my missteps. I forgive myself and move on. Taking sensible risks may sometimes expose me to errors. However, pursuing valuable opportunities is more satisfying than refusing to try at all.
When I put the past behind me, I am able to face my feelings. I examine my thoughts to see if they serve my current interests. I am open to changing my viewpoint.
I live in the present moment. I slow down and pay attention to my senses. I ask myself if I am seeing a situation realistically or whether my vision is distorted by previous experiences.
While I focus on the here and now, I plan for the future. I devote my energy to creating positive change and I am hopeful about what lies ahead.
Today, I release myself from the past and welcome new adventures.
- How does accepting the past help me move forward?
- How do I distinguish between letting go and giving up?
- Where can I find the courage to stop clinging to things just because they are familiar?
