Learning happens sometimes when you least expect it. A couple of days ago, I had one of those “aha moments” when some things became very clear. This particular moment I hope will be one where I will have learned.
Wait for it…
*The past is the past. It’s dead and the NOW is for living.*
One can’t stop memories from creeping in and out to the degree that someone or something has hurt you…made you happy or was a defining moment in your life. These memories linger but the lingering should never be the cause for one to live in what’s already dead.
The death of the past must happen. It makes room for the present. When the learnings have taken place only debri remains in the form of memories that I believe are not meant to hold a person hostage but are meant to inform the now and future. This is FREEDOM.
Freedom from the shackles of yesterday is living in the blissfulness of today. Today brings opportunities, new memories, new trials and new tribulations, contentment and the fire to continue.
So I say LIVE. Let go of the yesterday that keeps you stuck.
Enjoying your today.
