We all have things in our past that we regret… perceived mistakes, decisions made, opportunities not taken. Things that, with hindsight, could have worked out better. Most of us beat ourselves up mentally and emotionally for what we shoulda done, coulda done, or woulda done if only we knew then what we know now.

It’s time to release the past. It’s time to let go of all the old baggage, emotional angst, and self-bashing stories we rehash in our minds. These heavy thoughts of guilt, shame, and regret weigh down our energy, and rob us of our joy and well-being. It’s time to realize we did the best we could at the time. We are all human… and there is not one among us who has lived a perfect, regret free life.

How much of your past are you still carrying around?

It’s time to wipe the slate clean… to consciously let go of toxic thoughts, emotions, and regret. It’s time to breathe a breath of fresh air and begin to create anew.

It’s time to love yourself enough to forgive yourself and reset your focus on the present… right here, right now.

It’s time to create your life with brand new energy and unlimited possibilities! Now is where your power is. Tap into your natural enthusiasm, passion, inspiration, and love of life. Honor yourself and who you are and what you know now. Be kind to yourself.

If you find yourself dwelling on the shoulda, coulda, woulda thoughts of regret in the future… be aware… and kick them to the curb and let them go. Remind yourself of who you really are… a beloved and divine being. Think kind, compassionate thoughts of love and self-value. And bring yourself back to the present. You have the power to choose your thoughts, and thereby affect your feelings. Bless the past and move on. You deserve to be happy.
