I think most of us can find something in our past that gives us a good excuse for not moving forward. We can be victims looking at our life and seeing all the ways it has done us wrong.  That way of thinking, however, does not get us very far.  Wallowing in our past only serves to keep us there.  Instead use is as a trampoline to bounce off of into an exciting present.  Today focus on releasing the past and any negative holding patterns it has on you and embrace the now with all its potential and possibilities.
