We All Have Pasts

It’s hard to let go of the past sometimes.

We all look back on old times with fondness and sometimes regret. We miss old friends, old lovers, and old places too.

But being stuck in the past doesn’t do the present moment all that much good. In a way, pining for the past puts today on hold.

So what can we do to get out heads out of the past? Start by considering these 5 things.

1. How does the past serve the present moment?

It isn’t the past’s duty necessarily to serve this present moment in time, but it’s still a fair question to ask. What does the past do for you at this moment in time?

Does holding onto it enrich your present in any way?
