“If there are pieces of your past that are weighing you down, it’s time to leave them behind. You are not what has happened to you. You are someone unimaginably greater than you have ever considered, and maybe it’s time to consider all the possibilities that are within you.” –Matthew Kelly
How much baggage are you carrying from your past?
The mistakes you’ve made. The opportunities you missed. The disappointments. The tragedies. The could’ve beens and the should’ve beens. The people you still won’t forgive.
Letting go doesn’t mean forgetting your past. It doesn’t mean ignoring the lessons you’ve learned.
It means forgiving yourself and forgiving others. It means loving the amazing person you’ve become and letting go of the person you or anyone else thought you should have become.
Each of us is a work-in-progress. We have an opportunity every day to define our future. But, it’s impossible to choose our future while burdened with all the weight of our past.
It’s time to let go. Drop the weight. Drop the guilt. Drop the anger. Drop the regrets that quietly gnaw at your core.
Let go and prepare yourself for the awesome future that you choose.
As Matthew Kelly says, “You are someone unimaginably greater than you have ever considered.”
