“Look  to this day, for it is Life, the very life of Life;
In its brief course lie all the verities and realities of your existence…
the Bliss of Growth, the Glory of Action, the Splendour of Beauty.

For Yesterday is but a Dream,
and Tomorrow only a Vision;
But Today well lived makes Yesterday a Dream of Happiness
and Tomorrow a Vision of Hope.

Look well, therefore, to this day.
Such is the Salutation to the Dawn.”

Let The Sun Set On The Past

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERA

It is 2.30am on Sunday morning and I should be fast asleep.  But I need to clear my mind, to write down my thoughts, and I want to share them with you:

I realised yesterday that I was holding on to the past, trying to take it forward with me into the future.  It doesn’t work.  I tend to hang onto certain things way past their sell-by date.  I don’t mean in a physical way. I’m not a material hoarder by any means.  This is about emotional hoarding.  I have attachments, a need to hold on tightly to things that have served me in years gone by.

But they have no part in my future, and now I must release them and let them go.  I must allow the sun to set on my past.

It is time to move forward into a bright new future.  Clutching onto the past limits forward movement.  Progress is impeded. Life is for living fully in the present moment, not for dwelling in the dead and buried past. What an important lesson I have learned!!  And what a relief and a release!!  Now I can go back to sleep. Thanks for listening. See you again soon.
