Leave the past in the past

Keys to a fresh new year

Your thoughts (64) Leave the past in the past

2017 has come and gone. Yes things happened last year.

Some you were proud of. Some you wish you could change

Like someone hurting you or you making a decision you are not proud of.

The truth is you can’t change it. But you can do something to make things better

Because we want you to move forward. Here are some ways to do that

Let go of the past
Did someone say something hurtful to you? Did you make a bad decision? You probably still feel bad. You feel like it’s unfair it happened to you. You feel like it is hard to forget about it.
Yes it has happened. No you can’t change it. But you can change how it affects you. Try to stop thinking about it. Quit blaming yourself or anyone for what happened. Think of all the great things you can do and achieve this year. Take it one step at a time.

Learn from your experiences
Every experience has a lesson. Think of everything that happened last year. Both good and bad Did you keep getting in trouble last year? Were you able to save money? What did you do to make sure you saved? What did you learn from these experiences? Ask yourself these questions. Answer them honestly.
Take the lessons from the experiences. This way you can learn what to do if you find yourself in the same situation again.

Focus on this year
Now is a good time to focus on what you want this year.
Decide what you want. Is it to cut off people who keep hurting you, save more money or stop holding onto grudges? Make up your mind. Believe you can do it. Work on it.

This year stay positive. Be grateful for the things you learned last year. Enjoy the year.
