Reflections of the past always have a way of stalking us. Reering it’s ugly head. But, staying there…never letting it go…sulking in it…not only makes things harder, but it also wears you down mentally. It is exhausting. It will ruin your future and all things right in your life. Wise people often say to leave the past behind you!!! So, then, why not listen?
Yes, our past has made our present. It teaches us. We learn. We grow. We move on. It affects our train of thought…how we think. However, our past does not define who we are. Our mistakes do not define who we are. Our bad choices do. not. define. who. we. are. What we take from it…what we learn..what sculpts us in to who we are today…that, that is what defines us.
Digging…dredging…holding on to it…whether it’s yours, or someone’s you love…choose to be that wise person and let it go!
Like a bird…free yourself and fly far away…focus your reflections on the present instead!! If not, you may miss out on all that is beautiful and good standing right next to you.
