Leaving the Past Behind
Goodbye, Yesterday. Hello, Today!
Leave the past behind and find your time in the present moment. Be available now and see life now. You’ve heard the phrases, “What you dwell on will repeat itself,” or something along those lines. Stop dwelling. Stop repeating.
When you look back an hour, a day, a month, or even a year ago, what do you see and what do you wish to leave in the past? It’s okay to shake off the uneasy feelings and be free of that which did not serve you any good during the past.
We feel obligated, for some unknown reason, to continue moving along on the same hierarchal path our parents have placed us on and we have continued to gravitate. It’s okay to move off the path that was set for you for the future by someone else (ahem, your parents), and move to that which brings you joy.
Maybe your parents didn’t always fulfill the dreams they wanted and want more for you. It’s an okay measure to change your course of action and fulfill your own dreams. They must be fostered within your heart or they will not come to fruition. A dream of someone else’s choosing will not come to fruition in your own soul, but fester inside until you no longer can stand the path or you break down with anxiety.
If you have made choices in the past due to your own making, not that of parents or someone influential in your life, then it’s an okay thing to let those past choices leave your space as well. Sometimes choices are made in the moment, but not for long-term. Sometimes friends are made in the moment, but for lessons to be learned, not for long-term. Sometimes interactions through acquaintances become stepping stones to the next big piece of your dream.
But, you do not need to hold onto them forever.
Life changes can be made at any stage of your life. Don’t look back, but look forward. Drop any dreams that are not fulfilling themselves and shoot higher with the energy. Reach further and stretch your dreams higher to encompass your heart and soul. When you feel the excitement race into your body, hold onto it and ride it for the length of its stay.
Do not listen to others as to the path you should carry yourself, for their path and feelings are different than yours. Accept yourself with grace and respect others with gratitude for their concerns, but do not dwell upon the opinions of others. Their life is not your own.
Leave that which you no longer desire in the dust of the past and encompass the new energy of the moment time to propel you forward to the future.
The winds will lead you in any direction of your choosing. What will it be, dear, the past of stagnancy and unfulfilled dreams or the present moment of urgency with exciting energy ready to launch you to the future?
Your Ballgame… Your Court… Your Choice!
