If you are alive than most likely you have a story. A past. Memories of unforgotten pain. But if that's the case. You also have a CHOICE. A choice to hold onto the pain of the past or to take a deep breath.... and let it go. A choice to rewrite the past by focusing on all the good that you experienced. I don't care who you are. EVERYONE has a good memory from the past. I was someone that felt my life had been "hard", But the second I stopped dwelling on the unhappiness of the past and chose to remember the goodness, then I finally started to feel free. Don't get me wrong. I had created a habit of "feeling entitled to be unhappy because I had a "hard life" so it took practice. And I still find myself pivoting away from negative talk of the past to happier memories. Especially when commiserating with a friend. Its a work in progress. And I am getting better at it every day.
I promise you if you can start to think about, write about and talk about the wonderful things that you've had in your life growing up. Even if its the something like..." I was blessed to have a bed to sleep in at night." If you can focus on the blessings of the past you will be more free to attract blessings in the future. You will create a feeling that you attract blessings into your life and always have. Great or small. You are telling the Universe that you are abundant and blessed and then in turn attract abundance and blessings. That's Law of Attraction baby!
I challenge you to rewrite your story. Sit down and get your journal out, type it on your computer or iphone in the notes or journal section and start. It doesn't need to be long. Whatever memories that come to you great or small, jot them down. Go ahead. Its your story. The only person you are punishing by holding onto them, is you.
If you take on this challenge. you will raise your vibration to a higher level which makes you feel really good. And if you feel really good, guess what? You attract more things into your life that make you feel really good. Im all for that!
