Keep looking forward. That's where you're life is moving. That's where you're going. That's the best direction to focus on. What's behind you can't be changed. It's best not to get caught up looking back at it for too long. You've got so much more ahead to look forward to.
New Year's Day gives the world a chance at a fresh start. We can all benefit from starting fresh, putting the past behind and moving free into a new chapter. But, we don't have to wait until the end of the year to start new. Anytime you want, you can decide that it's the beginning … Continue reading New
Yesterday is gone. It may as well be from 100 years ago. Yesterday is behind you. There's no sense in facing that way. Life is in front of you. Keep looking ahead.
You can't ever be nowhere, because all there really is, is now, here. You can worry about the future or fret over the past all you want, but they are just ideas in your mind. Where we live, always, is in the now, right here. That's somewhere, and it's vital. It's not nowhere, it's now, … Continue reading Now Here
Memories aren't always reliable. They can be lovely. They can be horrible. They might not even be fully factual. And if they're particularly painful ones, simply remember that you don't live there anymore.
Are you moving forward, or are you stuck on still hoping for yesterday's dream to come true? Yesterday's dream is a dream you had for yourself when you were just slightly younger. But if you never did anything to move towards fulfilling that dream, and so it's still just a "dream", could it also just … Continue reading Yesterday’s Dream
They may try to shame you for not doing things the normal way. But the truth is that life doesn't work that way. There isn't one set way on how to do things. We need creativity and variety to keep life progressing. We need people to be brave enough to be unconventional. That's what inspires. … Continue reading Unconventional
Release the past. Release the pain that you're holding onto. I know you want to feel vindicated. I know you want to protect yourself from getting hurt like that again. But holding onto the pain and reliving the past is only causing you to hurt yourself. Release it. Move forward and don't look back. Release … Continue reading Release

After all, today is what you were dreaming … Continue reading Yesterday
Time may very well be a construct. It being something created by our minds in order to measure our reality. Even still, if time is simply an artificial construct, then timing is everything. There is a proper time for things to show up in our lives just as we need them. If the timing isn't … Continue reading Timing
There's no time like the present. Well, there's really no other time to be concerned with than the absolute present. The power is in the Now. Now is all we ever really have. We are fully alive when we remember that, and are mindfully present. There is peace to be found, being in the present … Continue reading Now
Feeling stressed is the result of leaving the present moment for some imagined scenario in a different time, either a future or past. You pick your poison. That is why you feel stressed. Come back to the present moment. Your breath is a good anchor to latch onto, because you tend to only breathe in … Continue reading Stressed
The best thing you can do for yourself is to be where you are. Be present. It may not presently be the exact place or circumstances that you want for yourself, but you'll never really know unless you let yourself be there. Time flies when you're having fun. Actually, time flies when you're fully immersed … Continue reading Time Flies
The way I see it, is that it's just a waste of time to point fingers and complain about what has gone wrong. Actually, looking back just to point out how bad it was is worse than a waste of time, it's foolish. And you're nobody's fool. Time only marches forward, so we should face … Continue reading Forward
Do you ever play the game where you think if I could travel back through time and visit my younger self, I'd tell him or her to really enjoy their youth and this innocent chapter... or something along those lines? Well, what do you think your future self is going to think about this time … Continue reading Cherish
Eckhart Tolle says: Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have. If we were to truly heed his words and realize this statement deeply and consistently, then I believe that most of our suffering would cease. Suffering comes from resistance. And what we are resisting most consistently is the present moment. We're … Continue reading This Moment
When we get stuck on what happened yesterday, or 10 years ago, or even on what happened in 1913, we are holding our lives hostage to the past. Let the past go. Today is a new day. You get to be brand new each day. Or you can be the same victim or hero you … Continue reading Today
Each day is a new chance for you to start fresh, create the life of your dreams, and under your terms. If you can breathe, if you find yourself to be awake in this new day, you get that chance. In the book The Magic of Believing, author Claude Bristol describes how Franklin D. Roosevelt … Continue reading Fresh Start
Our thinking is what creates our experience. We tend to spend most of our time lost in our thoughts, which are in effect mostly about problems from the past or an imagined problematic future. Spending so much time thinking about our problems only helps to perpetuate them in our lives. The funny thing is, when … Continue reading Creation
This is a heavy concept, but it's fundamental. Consciousness is a steady stream of Source Energy intelligence that runs throughout all of the Universe as pure Love. And we have access to this intelligence at all times. In fact, we should be accessing it to live a fully heart-centered life. What blocks it from us … Continue reading Consciousness
If saying or doing something hurtful against another feels bad to you now, just think about how much worse you may feel in the future, looking back and being powerless to stop your past self. Have you ever recalled something nasty you may have said in the past, and cringed in horror at the thought? … Continue reading Avoid Regret
When I'm fully engaged in the present, and when I'm really invested in what I'm doing in the here and NOW, I have no time to wallow about the past or worry about the future. In fact, at that point I have no sense of time at all. It's when I've taken my attention away … Continue reading Forget time
