Don't focus on the negative things of the past

past:futureYou can't do anything about the past but you can do something about the present and the future. You may have had an unfair past that is not the discussion, what I want to speak to you about is : " Move forward and get ready for the New Possibilities that are about to enter your life." Don't allow the past to poison your future. That is so easy for us to do. We all have had our pain and sufferings in this life time but we cannot do anything about the disappointments or the set backs of our yesterday. Many people like to hold on to the pain and hurts but you really should focus on what you can do and accomplish for your present moment.

Stop beating yourself us, feeling angry, sour or remorseful. No matter what happens in life, we all need to let the past go and be willing to walk forward in the light. If you choose to drag out the baggage from your yesterday, you will be holding onto the old and it will weigh you down. Yet no matter how hard you try to live in the past, remember--the old ways and past experiences are gone and will NEVER be re-captured. Only you can change your mindset and your life. Every time you think about your past emotions and feelings, you drag yourself down. When that happens, you need to immediately, change your thoughts, change the channel so to speak and reflect on the new and bright side of life. Stop replay your disappointments and bad breaks now is your time to walk freely from the old regrets, the old pain and the old failures. You cannot change the past but you can most certainly change the future.

Bitterness and resentment are negative thoughts and emotions. God cannot give you the beauty of the future if you continually hold on tightly to the broken dreams, the pains and the failures of the past. Release the victim mentality, stop asking the question "WHY" all the time and begin to understand that God has a way to help all of us see the NEW. So let go and get moving. Stop focusing on the hurt of a lose loved one, the lose of a job or relationship and begin to believe that what is in your future is far greater than what was in your past.

God has another plan for you - for the New Season of your life. You life can be better and more joy filled if you are willing to put on a new attitude and release the past. Let the beautiful memories of your past fill you with joy and a sweet warm spot in your heart and release all the pain and hurts and bitterness. Don't waste your future by living with your head always looking backward. You can never create the experiences that will allow you to enjoy your greatness by staying in the past. Some time we all need to cut off the self-pity, the unforgiveness and broken dreams and begin to open the passageway where the light and brightness prevails. It is time to rise up, get your passion back and be willing to seek the greatness that is waiting for you to experience. Put on a new attitude, focus on the New Opporrtunities that are waiting for you and know that your new future begins today. There are incredible new possibilities waiting for you right now. Be bold, be positive and I guarantee you will feel a new freedom within your heart and soul.
