The past is gone. But, it is a piece of the experience that defines who we are today.
All fear, stress and regret come from the past. We can be free of them entirely by choosing to live in this moment.
In this moment, life is simpler, mistakes are less devastating, work is more productive and relationships are more rewarding and intimate. Our talents and passions thrive. The world looks different.
As tempting as it may be to fantasize the what ifs of the past, those experiences are only helpful to us as we live in this moment.
The mistakes of the past are a source of wisdom and insight as long as we choose to bring those things to the present and leave regret behind. Mistakes are a part of the process that every one of us has to experience to learn and grow.
To forgive the past is to invite hope, peace, innocence and freedom without limitations.
