Rule #1 LET IT GO - From 7 Rules Of Life
LET IT GO - Never ruin a good day, by thinking about a bad yesterday.
Has this ever happened to you? You wake up feeling energized, refreshed and happy; maybe even excited about the day ahead. Then something triggers you - a sound, a feeling, a thought that takes you back to a day that was stressful, hurtful or frightening. Suddenly, there you are - right back to that place you were before - that ‘yesterday’ with all of its thoughts and negative feelings that dragged you down. Well, this HAS happened to me - more often that I want to admit, but this #1 Rule Of Life is an important element in our mental health and our success.
Don’t let yesterday ruin today.
"Forget about what's happened; don't keep going over old history." Isaiah 43:19 - The Message
Question - Is there something — or someone — you need to let go?
Let go of the past. You cannot undo it. Let go of the warped view you have of yourself. It doesn’t match what God thinks about you. Let go of the hurts. They hold too long and restrict spiritual and mental breathing. Let go of the mistakes you once made. God forgives us when we ask Him to, so let's forgive ourselves. Condemnation is a heavy chain. Let it go so that you can be free. Let go of anger because it will consume ALL of your thoughts. Anger doesn't allow space for anything else.
Colossians 3:2 teaches us to keep our minds set on heavenly things. Don't give the negativity, anger and frustration of yesterday a place to live today.
LET IT GO!
