“The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the present. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”– Dan Millman

The time to forget your past failures is now. The place to do it is right here, right where you are. Allow yourself to forget the past. The past is gone. There is nothing you can do about it. You can’t bring it back. No, you can’t.

Whatever may have happened to you in the past, let it go. Do not walk around with your past disappointments. It hurts!

The only thing you can do something about is NOW. The only place to start it is right here, right now. You can do something to change your present, but you can’t do anything to change your past. If that is the case, then why are you worrying yourself about what you cannot change?

To enjoy your life, you must do what you can to change your present. You must not worry yourself about your past failures. When you are always worrying yourself about your past, you become too focused on your failures. Stop doing that to yourself. You can’t change your past, but you can change yourself. That is what you should do. The choice is yours.

Regardless Of What You Are Going Through Right Now, Love Is Waiting For You

Life is like a mountain. To get to the top of it, you must climb it. You must do the work. You must take one step at a time.

Life is scary, but you can live it. You can choose your life. You can design your own life. It is your choice. Life is about making choices. Sometimes we get them right. Other times we get them wrong. It is okay to get them wrong. Because we are human beings. Human beings make mistakes. We succeed. We fail. That is okay.

When you fail, don’t ignore it. If you want to grow in your life, you must explore your failures. They have a lot to teach you. Don’t worry about people’s opinions. Just do your research to better yourself. Be flexible. Do not stick yourself to a particular result. If you do, you are going to be disappointed. Do not fear to explore what you don’t know. Life is about exploration. If you don’t explore other possibilities, you will never know what you are capable of doing. Always explore. Regardless of what you are going through right now in your life, if you have the courage to explore, to go after what you don’t know, if you want to better yourself, love is waiting for you. Because love is the foundation of everything. Nothing can defeat love. It is life.
