Leave Your Behind In Your Past
Or your past behind you... Whatever works. #TheLionKing #ShoutoutToRafiki - Either way, I'm coming to you today to scream from the rooftops how important it is to leave your past behind you. Learn from it, grow from it, then move the f*@! on.
Have an ex whose wretched spirit haunts your existence? Tell that ninja how you feel, let it out, build a bridge and GET OVER IT. Don't fear the repercussions, just get out the feelings and move on. I can't stress how important it is not to carry all the hurt and negativity of a break up into a new one. It isn't cute and you could quite literally hinder your happiness with someone else and potentially block your blessings. Go to therapy, write a book, talk to yourself in the mirror if you have to. Make it your main priority. Just let it GO.
Experienced some challenges in life? Financial? Spotty Past? Crappy parents? Dreams deferred? That's fine, life isn't perfect and we ALL go through something. We can't control that, what we can control if how we let our past affect our future.
I am a fan of writing out how you feel, prayer, talking to a friends, or a therapist. Go to the gym and let our your frustrations, repeat affirmations daily. I have a suggestions for one "My past will remind me, but it will not define me!"
Another helpful tip is to forgive yourself and others. You can't move forward with your life until you let go. If you focus on everything that has gone wrong in your life, you're holding yourself hostage from a joyful future. Make sure that you keep a positive group around you that believe in you and your growth.
Something that I would recommend is writing down the lessons that you have learned from past experiences and how you can improve to not make the same mistakes in the future. Put them in your phone or on a paper where you can easily find it. That way you can always reference your growth and your solutions to improve in each new situation in your life.
Lastly, BE POSITIVE! Think positive thoughts, radiate positive energy and SAY positive statements daily, constantly and incessantly. The more you do this, the more you will put positive energy into the universe which essentially trumps all the negative in your past. Trust me it works!
If you know someone who could benefit from this tabernacle, share away!

Your past is in your past... life is good! 2018 is your year!
