The Best Time in Your Life Is Now. Yesterday is gone and beyond reach, today is at your doorstep, tomorrow is yet to come. Today, you have the possibility, the power, the authority and the duty to take action towards realizing your objectives, to take decisions that will change the course of your life, to live each day with love and passion. The problem is too many people live in the past, sometimes without even noticing it and as a consequence, fail to see the many opportunities that lie in front of them. I know what I am talking about because I was one of them. For many years I lived in the past. For too long I carried the weight of the hurt, shame and struggle on my present and fortunately I realized it on time to stop, redefine my life and enjoy my present. The Best Time In Your Life Is Now.
I realized that our past life has a huge influence in our present and future life. So much so that if you do not make the conscious effort to deal with your past and embrace your present, your past will hold you captive and you will not be in a position to bring out the best in you.
I was a teenage mom and my past is very much alive in my present. I do not think anyone can separate the past from the present or the future as they are interwoven. However, I do believe that one can decide not to let the hurt, scars, emotions, trying moments, tribulations of the past influence the present in a negative way. It is one of the hardest things I ever did but it is also the most liberating experience I ever went through.
For too many years I carried the weight of my hurtful past. I never took time to deal with what happened to me or to process what happened to me. I never stopped a moment to heal and move on. I just repressed my feelings, rolled with the punches and moved on. I was so busy moving forward that the moment I took a break to look at what I achieved, the feelings and hurt of the past rushed back to me and caught me off guard. I cried my eyes out. I felt as if I was reliving my past and I felt vulnerable. It took me some time to regain control but I consciously decided to be in control and to deal with the shadows of the past.
I went back in time and willingly relived everything, I let my emotions flow and I accepted what happened to me as a rite of passage. I looked at the source of darkness and heaviness and learned to see the trying moments of my past as a the cornerstone of my successful life. As my emotions flew freely, my life was lightened.
The thing is would I have become the person I am today should I have not gone through the hardships of the past?
Ask yourself that question. Would you be the same person you are today if you had not gone through some past experiences ? The truth of the matter is that it is through adversity that we learn the most and that we grow.
The Best Time in Your Life Is Now. It is not in the past. If you do not let go of your past, it will prevent you from evolving and from moving forward. Whatever you have experienced, whether it was personal, professional, related to your health, whatever it was, has to be brought forth, exposed by the light and dealt with. It is a way to unload your soul and to give space to new present experiences.
Unloading ourselves of the burden of the past is not something that can be done overnight, it is a process but once we trigger the healing process and keep it going, every single minute, we get closer to our present life and hence fill the gap. Since I took the courage to expose the shadows of the past by the light, I feel happier, I feel more excited about my present, I am more aware of my present life and I attract more opportunities, more light, more abundance into my life as I managed to shift my energy consciously and subconsciously.
Whatever you are not aware of cannot be healed – Deepak
The present has its ups and downs too but we must get on the roller coaster ride, to gracefully welcome the ups and process the downs in a way that allows us to unleash our true potential. Today, I received a negative feedback for something I applied for. I was disappointed as if my application had been approved, it would have added value to my life but I do not need it to move on with my aspirations and my projects. At least I tried, I have no regrets and I am ready to move onto the next thing.
I hope this inspirational article will help you realize that Your Best Time Is Now. Ask yourself what is the source of darkness in your life. What keeps you from truly living in the present and prevents you from releasing the power within you ? It is time for you to live in the present and to step into your greatness. There is no better time than today. As you move into May, consciously change the patterns in your life. You will feel lighter and happier.
Be blessed always,
