Do you get wrapped up in your past regrets and not allow yourself to move forward? Do you stay attached to past pain and not want to let go? Your present life is an open book, if you allow it to be. Pain is meant to be pushed through to show you the strength of your being and allow you to grow from it. The best things in life happen when you overcome failures and mistakes. We are meant to fail at things to show us how to become better. Don't miss the chance to become a better person because you fear change and the uncertainty of it. People spend a lifetime suffering and feeling sorry for themselves because of the situations that they put themselves in, rather than move on. If you find a way to move through your negative beliefs and negative self-talk, you can overcome your pain. Your mindset is what is in control of your life. What you think about yourself and your life will continue to be true until you change it. The process of changing your mindset and letting of pain is a process that takes constant work and can be tough. Facing your fears and pain can be emotional, but it allows you the chance to release those feelings of suffering and regret. If you want happiness, you have to think of what happiness feels like. You present day can only be affected by what you allow in. Your eyes should be open to the present. If your eyes are not open to the present, you will not see all the opportunity for happiness that lies right in front of you. Live each moment of your day as if you choose that moment for yourself. Keep going even if you aren't sure what to do in that moment. The answers will come to you, if you just keep going. Don’t let your past mistakes, guide your life. We are all human, make mistakes and have pain because of them. The people that live the most free and happy learn to not hold on to the pain, it’s not because they never had any pain that they are happy. Have faith in the present moment and it will have faith in you. When you continuously look back to your past, you will continuously block yourself from improving your life. Peace and happiness will come when you live life in making your present day as bright as possible. Let your pain guide you to a place of peace. Release your pain and let your life flow. When mistakes happen, forgive yourself and move on. Let the negative feelings pass through you, and your new found strength will guide you to a brighter day.
