When I got on Facebook earlier today, I saw this quote by George Strait.
“If you don’t leave the past in the past, it will destroy your future. Look what’s in front of you, not what yesterday took away. The best is yet to come.”
This really inspired me today. Probably because I know this is something I really need to do better. I am very good at holding on to the past like it was worth a million dollars. I do this even though it really only hurts myself. My continuing to focus on past problems doesn’t hurt the person or persons with whom I am angry. Yet it can be so very hard to let go. That is why it’s something I have to work at more.
I really need to work on focusing on the good things that are happening now. I also need to focus on the fact that I can see a time in the future when I can see a resolution to the problems caused by the issue that I hold on to with all my might. I do this even though I know my husband and I are better off now because of what happened. Yet, it is so hard to let go of how it affected me and how it affected my husband. So hard to let go even though tomorrow will be better because of the change. Change is still so hard.
I had wanted to include a digital art journaling page with this post. But I’ve been working on it for awhile and nothing is coming. Maybe if I can do better with this challenge of working on tomorrow instead of yesterday, my mojo will return.
That’s it for today. Until next time, look to tomorrow.
