When all you can think about is what happened before, who was there before, how you felt before or how you were treated before...honey, you were done from the beginning.
In order to grasp your present and give it the chance and the power to create your future, you have to let go of your past. That in no way means that you should forget the lessons you've learned from your past. But you can't cling to your past and expect to move forward into your future. You have to make a choice. You have to decide what exactly you will hold onto.
You have to decide if you will be held hostage by past pain, past failures, past disappointments, past embarrassments or even loss. While some things are easier to let go of than others, letting go always begins with the choice and decision to do so. If you can't let go to go forward...you're already done from the beginning. Think about it.
It's beautiful to be you...simply beautiful.
