Just when I think I’ve let so much go, an old painful memory comes creeping in during my meditations to remind me there is still inner work to be done. And when I heal myself for one final time I realise I had been holding on to some unecessary baggage for way too long. God only knows why 🙂
One of the easiest ways to feel miserable about ourselves is by replaying the past. Not only do we limit ourselves from enjoying the present moment, we end up holding onto something that no longer exists or is relevant today.
Change is constant. And with it we must adapt or fall. Yet so many of us still cling to the past or live in worry about the future. Very natural, very human but truly a waste of energy. We do not heal the past by living in it, we heal the past by living in the present.
By practising mindfulness and being a little more aware of our thought patterns we can learn that present moment is where life begins.
