What do you love? What do you want?



It took me years to understand and answer these questions myself as there were so many things that I held on to from my childhood into my adult years. These things consisted of growing up with an alcohol addicted dad (god rest his soul) and failing adult relationships. Due to this I didn't realize how much these things were affecting my personal adult relationships. When I finally found it in myself to forgive and let go through the grace of God, it changed all aspects in my life and ultimately made me an even better person. 

You have to think about it this way, if you hold on to the past for years to come then how will you ever get to appreciate the joyfulness and fabulousness of your present and future.

Take a look at the passage below and I hope it enlightens you the same way it has me.

Let go of anything you don't love about your life story and just keep the things you love.  If you hold on to negative things from your past, then you keep putting them into your story every time you remember them, and they go back into the pictures of your life-now!

Let go of the things you don't love about your childhood, and keep the things you love.  Let go of the things you don't love about your adolescent and adult years, and keep the good things.  Just keep the things you love about your whole life. All the negative things of the past are done, finished; you are not the same person as you were then, so why keep putting them in your story if they make you feel bad? You don't have to dig negative things out of you from the past, just don't put them in your story anymore.

If you keep telling a story of being a victim, then those pictures will play over and over again in your life.  If you keep telling a story that you're not as smart as other people, or not as attractive as other people, or not as talented as other people, you will be right because they will become the pictures of your life.

When you fill your life with love, you'll find that guilt, resentment, and any negative feelings will leave you.  And then you will start telling the greatest story ever told, and the force of love will light up your life with the pictures of the real story of your amazing life. ~Rhonda Byrne

With the above said, what do you want and what do you love? Can you find it in your heart to let the past go?

Thank you all so very much for reading and be sure to leave your thoughts and comments below.
