People sometimes say that “my mind knows everything but my heart is still not ready to accept it”. Admit it we all have said this at least once but this is a sentence that holds us back from moving on and accepting things as they are. We keep on holding to certain things even after knowing they no longer exist; it can be your bond with your best friend or maybe you had a breakup and now you can’t accept the fact that he/she is gone. The thing with remembering your past and regretting it is that you’ll not be able to move ahead. Past is like a brick which comes your way at certain points of your life, but hey life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it, right? Now, you need to decide what do you want to do with that brick. If you decide to stay there, you are not moving ahead! But if you decide to let it go and move on, Bravo! you are moving ahead in your life. Past is past, you can not change it now, so accept it and look at the lessons it taught you, understand your mistakes and promise yourself you won’t commit the same mistake again, because the ones who learn from there mistakes and do not repeat it again are wise.
So, whenever you feel low just sit back and relax, do not ignore your feelings and confront to yourself that you are not okay right now (it’s ok not to be ok, you are a human!). Just understand that we are always choosing, so today choose happiness, choose life and choose yourself. Afterall, we choose what we become and life is all about letting go things/people and accepting things as they are. If you are going through something, I wish you all the best!
We must let go of the life we have planned, so as to accept the one that is waiting for us.
