Today’s Spoon

The Past or The Now?

I woke up excited today. Excited about the fact that I opened two eyes. Excited that I am able to walk on two legs. Excited that I can talk, type and think. I am excited and grateful for these things that I used to take for granted.

I used to complain a lot, largely because I was stuck in the past. Now every time I think about complaining I turn that complaint into something I’m grateful for. This gratitude turns my mood from lower vibrational to higher — I get excited.

How many times do you think to yourself — I wish that never happened? Or I wish I had said or done something different. This used to be me until I became grateful for my experiences — as each one has contributed to making me the way I am today.

I have embraced everything about myself after many years of denying it. I have accepted myself as I am 100% and I’m committed to bettering myself every single day. There is nothing we can’t do — all limitation only exists in the mind.

There were times when I would just sit and mull over all of the old thoughts, old experiences and old feelings. Then I thought to myself — how is this going to help me become better?

How is this act of being in the past going to help me build something I can be proud of?

I decided that day to dedicate my life to building something of value, instead of being a “Debby Downer” or “Negative Nancy” who provides nothing but lower vibrational energy for others. I want to be a source of inspiration and value for others so that they may never go through some of the hardship I have.

Since deciding on this way of life everything has changed and I have noticed the impact I’m having on the world already. The people around me are all supportive and positive, the places around me are peaceful and inspirational and the things around me do not determine how I feel.

Liberate yourself from living in the past by doing something you love — right now.

Peace & positive vibes.
