There are three formidable choices we have to wrestle with as we begin to make conscious choices in our lives: Past, Present and Future.
Often, we wrestle with these three forces wondering what to take with us and what to leave behind. Sometimes, our choices are compounded by the popular “leave the past behind”. I agree to some extent. However, your past brought you to your present and your past and your present have a big say for your future.
In reality, these three forces work together. Our best choices are to intentionally clear the web of the past, so we can see what is emerging in the present that can help to mold the future. The past is not always painful or negative. Sometimes and often, it is a combination. Remember, the past and the present is not equal to the future. The future often holds more promise for anyone who dares to make the leap.
