Letting go of your past is not easy. First you have to accept the events that occurred as well as the actions, or inactions, from yourself and others. It’s not always comfortable to sit with yourself to acknowledge and forgive where you could have done better only if you did or said this instead of that. The actions and words of others are also hard to forgive and let go but we must. Holding onto our dysfunctional thoughts, habits and actions may have helped us survive however they only hold us back from moving forward with a newfound conviction to be the best person we can be. Mistakes are lessons. Grieve for your losses and step boldly forward into the possibilities of a brand new day. Today is brimming with possibilities and second chances to make your life a shining example of courage, gratitude and inner peace. When you let go you do make space for healing.
