Musing Monday

Boy can I relate to this one.  How often do you dwell in the past?  I’m much better at it than I used to be, I've dealt with a lot of issues that I used to review over and over – but I still find times when I let myself get put off, put down, or upset by the things of the past.  I acknowledge that I have done less than spectacular things in the past, things I’m not proud of, and also things that were just the mistakes of a young and immature person.  I've also done things during my period of depression that I beat myself up about and I have to try and remember that I really wasn't myself at those times.   It is very important that we learn from the past, that we continue to grow and move forward, but the key is to move forward.  We have to learn and then let go, take the lesson and make something new – otherwise we just stagnate in a pool of loathing, self hate or self delusion that isn't good for anyone.
