I’ve had the opportunity to stroll down memory lane this past week. Both in terms of old relationships and my health.
It’s unbelievable how far I’ve come in both regards. How different I am.
I am different, and there is nothing and no one in this world that could convince me to revert back to my old ways or days. The past is the past for a reason. You learn and grow and move on from it. I haven’t put all this work into myself to stay the same, or be in the same situations as I was in before.
Don’t get caught up in your past. If you do my chance stroll thru memory lane, do just that – stroll. Don’t stay.
Your past and the things that have happened in your life don’t deserve your undying loyalty. What and who are presently in your life do. Your present day determines where you will be going in the future. Be loyal to that. Be loyal to a better future.
Don’t let your past distract you from where you are going.
Just a little reminder for you and me. Think about where you are going and remember it’s going to be more than your past could have ever offered you.
The only thing that remembering your past offers is thr knowledge not to repeat it. Progress requires change.
This isn’t to say everyone has an unpleasant past but the fact of the matter is you can’t grow if you are stuck on the “glory days” or “better days” or the “worst days” of your life. Whatever the past was for you, it no longer serves a purpose other than growing from it and moving on.
Reflect on your past- because how else can you grow BUT be loyal to your future, that is where you are going. Don’t jeapordize your progress by getting stuck on who you were before.
Enjoy your now and remind yourself that you will have a better tomorrow. Each day is an opportunity. Take it and run with it.
