Let go of yesterday.
Why let go of yesterday? Because yesterday has already let go of you. Letting go is one of the essential virtues for life. Learning how to let go is a universal need, and a skill that can make your life happier, more peaceful, and even more productive.
Of all us have one or more “sticky thoughts” that are not really doing anything for us, and are not really pleasant, yet we find it hard to let go or move on.
If you can tell a story about how you were wronged last month, last year, five, even ten years ago with the same vehemence, anger, and ire, then you have not let go of it! What happened has happened. What was done is done. Over, finis.
Yesterday is history and it is done. Record it into your history book and close it. Yesterday could have been the worst day of your life. You might have lost your job, your savings or someone you held close to your heart.
Although it might take some time to move on from any tragedies you faced yesterday, every day forward will get better. Yesterday you made decisions; they may now seem good, they may seem bad.
But that was yesterday. If you stay positive, you can choose to make the best of your decision today. Yesterday cannot be changed. It is indeed too late to change the things you did in the past, but it is not too late to change the things you are planning to do today.
Tomorrow is a Mystery. It has not happened yet, so do not sweat on it yet. Dream and start doing things to work toward that dream right now. Tomorrow is not certain, nor guaranteed. Life can make a 180-degree change in less than a day and we cannot control them. We can make plans, but plans change. Anticipate and remember that.
Tomorrow is an opportunity. If you did something great today, you have the opportunity tomorrow to create something better. If you did something that seems bad, you have the opportunity tomorrow to make it good. It is your choice.
Today is a Gift and a certain opportunity to decide where you want to go in life. If you do not love what you are doing, use this opportunity to change something. Today can be the first day of the rest of your life to create new habits, surprise yourself, and put a smile on your own face by doing things you love.
Today you can be better than you were yesterday and you have the power to make great choices for your health, body and mind. Today is your only chance to experience this present moment and it will never come again.
Do not stress and beat yourself up for what has happened in the past. We have all made mistakes, failure teaches you and is important to leading a successful life. Learn from yesterday by doing things today that have the power to make tomorrow great.
“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, and today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present.” ~Alice Morse Earle. Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.
