Most of us say that we want to move forward in our life and yet strangely we find ourselves stuck reliving the past.
Many of us get stuck reliving the past because we carry so much baggage from the past that it literally weighs us down like a heavy anchor preventing us from growing and moving beyond the experience.
Here's the kicker, may of us that are stuck in this position are staying there because for some reason or another, we are invested in the experience. Maybe we are still angry at someone, or we don't know who we are without reliving the experience.
The reason we stay stuck may be known or unknown, but to move forward, we MUST be willing to give up the experiences, situations, memories and pain that is holding you down.
You will remain stuck until you intentionally decide that you no longer desire to keep revisiting the experiences. Once you consciously decide that enough is enough and you don't like where you are in your life at this moment and you truly release the past, this is when you are free to fly and move on to a better life.
Ditch the anchor and enjoy the new experiences that come your way as your are flying free of the past!
