Sometimes we allow the past to hover over our heads like a dark cloud in the sky. Some of us have made it a habit to transfer the power we have to influence and direct the present to a past we can no longer control. Whatever happened in the past is over and done with. There is no need to dwell on something that you cannot change; that is certainly not the highest and best use of your time.
Your energy, attention and focus should always be directed to the present. The control that you maintain in your life is limited to the present, not the past and not the future. Do not be misled; what we do in the present certainly has an effect on our future. However, the emphasis should always be placed on what you can control; the present. When we try to change our yesterdays or focus too intently on our tomorrows we neglect our todays. Don’t neglect your right now. Right now is all you truly have control over.
There is a particular beauty that comes with a new day so do your very best to embrace it. Each new day presents another opportunity to try it again or as I like to call it “press the reset button”. A new day gives us a chance to start over, only if we perceive the gift of a new day in this manner. There is absolutely nothing wrong with starting over. Most people are afraid to start over because they fear that all of the work they put in the past would have all been for naught. That is the farthest thing from the truth.
Your experiences, trials and tribulations of the past are what provide the strength necessary to face the future. Choose to press the reset button that each new day presents and start anew. Today is a new day and you should treat it with the care and attention you typically treat anything that is new.
