Don’t let yesterday take up too much of today. Sometimes we need a reminder on the importance of presence and of letting go of the past. Whether it’s something that happened years ago or earlier this week. When we keep reliving an experience in our head, perhaps something that upset or disappointed us, we are recreating the suffering we experienced the first time the situation occurred. If it wasn’t very fun when you initially went through it, you probably don’t want to relive it over and over again, right?
We usually cling to the past either because we are trying to figure something out or because we wish it had occurred differently. But staying stuck in that mental vicious cycle rarely changes anything or produces a positive result. The best is to see the lesson in it or even to accept that we don’t have the answer for now. It might become clear some day but at least you won’t have missed out on the present because you were stuck in the past.
Fully experience today for all the gifts it has to offer you. When we stop grasping the past or obsessing about the future, we are much more open to inspiration and to the clues that life is sending our way to keep us on our authentic path. Wishing you a wonderful day!
