I have always been the type of person that analyzes everything, especially the past. I am constantly trying to figure out what I could have done better and how not to repeat my bad mistakes. I’m not blaming anyone for the choices I made at that time, nor am I trying to justify those choices. The hurtful events of my life have left open wounds on my heart. I was always living with one foot firmly cemented in the past and the other treading lightly in the present. I could never fully enjoy the gift of a new day. Allot of who I am is because of the things that have happened in my past. Those events do not have to shape who I am becoming or steal my joy. I can’t forget my past mistakes or experiences but I have the choice everyday not to repeat them. I decided awhile ago that I was no longer going to analyze or live my life in the past The lessons of the past offered the opportunity for me to learn. The present is the gift of growth. Have a great week!

Living in the moment means letting go of the past and not waiting for the future. It means living your life consciously, aware that each moment you breathe is a gift.
— Oprah Winfrey
