When you stop emotionally investing in your past and begin to appreciate it for what it is and learn from it you have the opportunity to create a magical and wonderful life!
Let me ask you some questions.
What does your emotional bank look like and how much time, energy and attention do you invest on your past?
Where does your focus fly to - the pain and hurt or happiness and joy of your past?
Many people who are unhappy in life focus on the wrongs, pain, regrets and hurt of the past.
When you emotionally invest in these emotions and experiences you are simply re-creating and re-living these past experiences and this causes more pain, hurt, regrets and more missed opportunities.
By focussing on the past you invest your energy into the wrong place and miss the joys, happiness and peace that is here today.
One of the first step towards creating a happy and fulfilled life is to let go of your past. The past has happened and you can not change that but you have opportunity to create a much happier and fulfilled life today.
By letting go of the past you take responsibility for your life. Invest your energy into what you can change - today and your future.
Create acceptance of what has happened in the past and be grateful for those experiences - no matter how painful or hurtful - as they created the person you are today.
Having a space and holding the past pain to eventually heal allows you to be more compassionate and love to others on a much grander scale.
Learn from the past, ask yourself what did it teach me? If you open your heart you can begin to see that the past has perhaps taught you strength, courage, compassion, empathy, kindness and understanding.
The power is in your hands and hearts. You are the own author of your life, your own artist. Get creative and follow your hopes, wishes and desires.
I now see my past as a gift, the pain and hurt gave me the strength to succeed in my life. It taught me many lessons and I used these as a map and guidelines on how I wanted to live my life. If I didn't have my past experience I wouldn't be the person or therapist I am today.
And that I am grateful for.
I dare you today to live today as it was your last, experience in each moment in time from your heart. Don't get caught up in the past. Learn from it. Heal. Move on and appreciate the life you have now.
Make the most of being you. Live your dreams. Connect with your talents, gifts, and unique qualities and have fun!
I didn't have a happy past, for many years it was full of self-hatred, depression and anxiety. I decided one day that I wanted to make the most of this life and went on a journey of self-discovery, healing and empowerment.
Now through my work as a London Hypnotherapist, Life Coach and Mindfulness Practitioner I help people to heal, develop their inner strengths, resources and abilities to experience life at their fullest.
