Everyday is a fresh start. You can move on, let go of what happened yesterday and create a new canvas for yourself today. We are the ones that drag the past with us. It’s not it that wants to follow us along. Let go of the mistakes, the anxious thoughts and the imperfect actions.

Embrace what is here now. Show gratitude for the gifts of the present.

Be aware of how hanging on to the past keeps you from moving ahead. Maybe you perceive the past as better than the now. Maybe you have great memories you don’t want to let go of. Comparing the now with any other moment just lessens it.

Even if the now seems uncomfortable for whatever reason, know that it represents growth.

I love Eckhart Tolle’s quote “This too shall pass”. It’s such a great reminder to appreciate the good moments when we are living them and to know that the more difficult will eventually be over.

Don’t look back with regret. Look forward with hope while fully standing in the now and seeing all that it has to offer.

Maybe it’s a period of rest that is preparing you for a cycle of high energy. Maybe it’s a lot of personal inner work to allow you to thrive even more. Whatever it is, open your arms to it and release what once was.

Welcome in presence and acceptance and have faith of what this is preparing you for.
