Oftentimes, we tend to hold on to a lot of things from our past.
And more often than not, we let our past define us.
By doing so, we lose the opportunity to live in the now and enjoy what life has to offer.
Listen guys, becoming your own #bestmeever involves being able to be brave enough to let go of the things, situations and people that no longer serve you well or are no longer true and applicable in your current space.
They already taught you important lessons. You took all those to heart. That's enough. You don't have to keep beating yourself up because it's over and done with. What matters is you've grown from them.
2. Your failures
See it this way: you're still here. You've made it this far. And that alone makes you successful. It means that you still have another chance to make things right. And not everyone has that beautiful opportunity. Seize it.
3. People you've outgrown
Not everyone has to play a part in your current story. And that doesn't make you (or them) as a bad person. Each person that comes in your life has a purpose. And once they leave, that means they have already fulfilled theirs. And that's something to be really grateful for.
4. The future's uncertainty
No one has control over the future. Yes, you included. So stop stressing over what lies ahead and just focus on making the most of what today can be. That's the only thing certain indeed: what you have now. The present moment.
5. The small stuff
Reflect on this: you've probably been through worse. And you made it through. So don't let things which are not life changing so to speak take up most of your time, space and happiness. If it wouldn't matter in the next 5 minutes, 5 hours, 5 days, 5 weeks or 5 years, don't sweat it.
As you read over this, I hope that you managed to reflect on your own and clear some space in your current life.
