“To grow, you must be willing to let your present and future be totally unlike your past. Your history is not your destiny.”- Allan Cohen

You can’t grow, you can’t move forward in your life if you are not ready and willing to let go of the past. You can’t really be yourself if you are still thinking of what you did wrong yesterday. You are a human being. And human beings make mistakes.You don’t have to use your past to construct your future. Your past is your past. Let whatever happened live and die in the past.

Now is what you have, so enjoy it while you have it. You are not going to be here forever. If you don’t enjoy your life, you will never enjoy it. Your life deserves better than the way you are treating it. Life is special. Your life is special! I don’t know why you are doing what you are doing to yourself. From now on, start living your life to the fullest. Don’t apologize for living your own life. If your people don’t respect your life and how you are living it, show them the door. If you don’t show them the door, they will be the first to show you the door. Trust me, it is better to live alone and be happy than to live with someone and be miserable. If you are alone doesn’t mean you are lonely. It just means you want to be alone. It means you need time to reflect, to think, to reconnect with your lost self, to appreciate your life, and to love.

Let go of the past. Live in the moment. Prepare for your future. Are you ready?
