It is easy to let our past, predict our future. If you believe that you are not smart enough, will you go back to school? If you believe that you are not worthy of good things, will you allow them into your life? If you have had negative relationships, will you pursue positive ones now?
Letting who you believed yourself to be yesterday, last week, last year or 20 years ago keep you from being who you are today is a common trap. It is easy to keep those old stories playing in our minds, allowing them to inform the present with old news. We can be attached to the past, and what we believe it "says" about us. We can also choose to release the old, not believe it anymore and take action as proof.
Each new day is a new you. Every moment we have the opportunity to be our best selves, and if we miss our chance, we have another and another and another. Knowing that you are given moment by moment "do-overs", how will you change your life? This constant grace is extended to all, we can also gift it to ourselves and to those around us.
This leads to the question; "Are you holding others in their past?" We allow the past of others to inform us of who they are today. When we do this we hold on to judgement and crush possibility. Allow yourself and others to be who they are today, acknowledging that we are all in constant evolution. Approach yourself and others with open curiosity, making space to discover the new story.
