"Get over it. Get on with your life."
Each of us makes mistakes, lots of them to be more accurate. In spite of our best efforts to avoid mistakes, our lives are filled with untimely decisions, erroneous moves and flawed judgment. Try as we might to avoid making mistakes, we're only human. And that means we keep on making them, one right after another.
There are things we wish we wouldn't have done, words we wish we never had spoken. We would give almost anything to take them all back and rewrite the past. But we've already made the mistakes, we've already spoken the words... and there's nothing we can do to undo what's already been done.
Except let them go.
"Never let yesterday use up too much of today."
Don't we all wish we could somehow steer our way clear of making any mistakes whatsoever? Of course we do, but let's face it, that's not the way it goes. If we're going to get out on the playing field and give life our very best shot, we're going to make mistakes. And keep making them. But that's OK, as long as we don't dwell on them.
Whenever we make a mistake, we can do one of two things. We can get up, get better and get going again, putting the mistake in our rear view mirror or alternatively, we can allow the mistake to haunt us forever.
"By simply letting go of each and every thing that has held you back and held you down in the past, you put the past to bed once and for all."
Way too often we allow our prior missteps and blunders to hang over us like a dark, daunting cloud, looming ever larger with each passing day. Unable to let go, unable to move on, we become scared and indelibly scarred.
Filled with regrets and overcome with grief, we live and relive the past over and over again until we can focus on little else. We pray for the anguish and pain to just go away, but it lingers on and on.
Why are some things in life so tough to get over? Why does the hurt keep coming back time and time again? While each of us is different and handles adversity in our own way, all of us possess feelings; powerful emotions that can overwhelm us if we're not careful. These feelings come into play each and every time we make a mistake. And make no mistake, some mistakes really, really hurt.
"Life loves to be taken by the lapel and told: I'm with you kid. Let's go."
Like it or not, we're never going to outgrow making mistakes. Wished we could, but we won't. So the next best thing is to learn how to let go - and get on with our lives. Not an easy task to be sure, but one that must be mastered if we're ever going to move our lives forward. That means leaving our past where it needs to be left... and that's in the past.
Each day brings with it a clean slate, a new opportunity to start fresh, to begin anew. We need to emphatically embrace the spanking new day with all the enthusiasm, energy and excitement we can muster. And stop looking back at what has occurred in the past.
We need to let go and even more importantly, we need to get going. Why should we wait one minute longer, mired in the past, when a magnificent, beautiful, bountiful future awaits on the horizon? We shouldn't and we won't. We just need to turn the page and get on down the road.
So let go - and let's go.
The Bottom Line: Forget about your past problems and focus every ounce of your energy on making today a day you will never forget.
