This is YOUR LIFE. You are responsible for where you are and YOU are the only one holding you back from where you want to go.
You can’t rewind to the past and change anything no matter how many times you torture yourself by playing your history back in your mind. Living in the past is a recipe for disappointment and regret. You are not those circumstances. You are no longer the person who made those choices. You are no longer in that situation.
In order to live our lives with an open heart we must learn to forgive. Forgiving others never means we are condoning their behavior. We forgive for ourselves. So we can release and move on. Equally, if not more important, we need to forgive ourselves. We have all done things in our lives we regret or wish we can change. You deserve forgiveness. You were simply doing the best you could at the time. You are not that person. You do not need to continue berating yourself. You are the person you choose to be right now IN THIS MOMENT. Be present. Because what you CAN DO is take control of where you are right now.
You also can’t fast forward to the future and know what will happen. In order to truly live we must embrace change. Embrace chance. Embrace fear. Embrace the possibilities of what’s there for you when you stop making excuses and stop reliving your past and fearing the future. Who do you want to be? Choose to live from that place and move forward from your heart. From your soul. There is always a chance things won’t turn out as we hope. That also means things can turn out even better than you could possibly imagine. DECIDE to no longer be stuck. It’s really that simple.
