Break free!

Friday, July 12, 2013

We all have pasts. We all have today. Most of us have a future. What can we control? Today is REALLY all any of us have, yet we tend to allow ourselves to be bound by the chains of the past.

Our parents abused us? We compensate by overeating. emoticon

Our finances are a mess. A bowl of chips makes it better. emoticon

We have had bad relationships? WARNING! THIS MIGHT HURT! Maybe, just maybe, we decide to eat to insulate ourselves from future relationships.

We are feeling sad? Comfort food works!

We are angry? Chewing works off aggression!

It is time to break the chains of bad habits.

The only thing we have control of is this minute in time. We cannot change the past. It is over. Past.

Let it go. Use your past to make you a better person, not a bitter one. Don't allow your past to destroy your future.

We can control only what we do today, this hour, this minute. Every choice that you make today will impact your tomorrow.

There are 3 "C"s for life.

Today is your day! Declare your freedom from the bondage of the past.

Today is your day! Make it a great one!

    Blow me away-I needed this-I can be such a the past....and it has gotten me nowhere I want to be!
The Eagles' song, "Already Gone" has a line I just love: often times it happens that we live our lives in chains and we never even know we have the key...
Letting go and moving ahead-thanks!

    You can't change the past, only improve the future by the way you live the present.
