How do you Let Go of the Past and Move Forward to Living your Best Life?
What does your best life look like?
We want to start there because we all have different Ideas of what we want our lives to look like. Ask yourself what do I love? Is it things, people or adventures? Sure you probably have some in each of these categories that you “love” and of course we use the word Love very flippantly and interchangeably with things we enjoy.
Life has so many options but as we know many of these options cause us to be overwhelmed, stressed and above all disappointed that our choices didn’t give us the satisfaction that we thought they would. But how do we change the outcome of these decisions? How do we do “better the next time”?
We must be intentional about our choices much like a reporter should give us facts about Who, What, When, Where and Why…… We all need to ask ourselves – WHO brings me the most joy in my life? WHAT do I truly enjoy doing? WHEN am I going to take the time to make the changes needed to live my best life? Where do I want to truly see change in my life and Why do I want to live a better version of myself?
Many people have never asked themselves these questions, instead they live their lives reacting to their circumstances. We are in charge of our destiny. Sadder still, others believe that they don’t deserve to have a better life.
New Decisions = New Life
I allowed a few bad decisions to control so many aspects of my life for years. But by the grace of God I was challenged to create a better life for myself. I realized only I could change my circumstances. What a freeing thought: I was ultimately responsible for my decisions and decided I was going to “Let Go of the Past and Move on to the Future” I could and would make new decisions that would change the outcome of my life. I decided to live my best life NOW!
