Your past is important.
It is what you know; it is what is familiar. The past — with all of its pains and all of its joys — encapsulates each step you have taken, each step that has led you to where we are NOW, made you the person you are today. With that in mind, it is essential that you honor every person, every event that has shaped the course of your life. What is truly amazing is that when you look back - really examine and reflect upon the beautiful body of work that you have been cultivating - you can more clearly see the way forward!
Sometimes, moving forward requires that you let go of some part of your past. In the great words of international speaker and author Steve Maraboli, “Letting go means to come to the realization that some people [or titles, or events, or beliefs] are a part of your history, but not a part of your destiny.”
What must you release in order to move forward? What thing from the past might be holding you back, preventing you from becoming the person you are meant to be?
