I Love the Good Ol’ Days

Do you know someone who loves “The Good Ol’ Days”? You know them…the “reminiscers”. They are always talking in terms of “remember when”? They are usually daydreaming about a time that was better than “now”. Maybe that person is you? Perhaps you have recently started mending from an emotional set-back, like I blogged about previously.

When you are going through emotional turmoil, it is natural to be very conscious of your past. Perhaps a former partner was part of the turmoil. Perhaps, it was someone else. Things were so good before, at the beginning. Why couldn’t your life be like it was then? You were the perfect couple. Or, you were best friends. Then things changed. There are all those things that they did to hurt you…All things that they should have done…All the negative moments…You think about them, play them over and over in your mind, and sometimes it seems like it happened only yesterday. If only….

For you, the past is comfortable. It is something that you are familiar with, even if it was not something worth remembering. You kinda like remembering how badly this person treated you. It fuels your right to be angry with them~to hold that grudge. It fuels your right to think of them as a cad for ruining a perfectly good relationship.

My question to you is this: Is it worth it? Holding onto the past just pulls you away from moving forward. It draws you away from your goals, dreams and aspirations. You put your energies into something that may not bring you any rewards. Actually, I can almost guarantee that you won’t be rewarded by dwelling on your past. You should certainly learn from it, though!

Sure, the future is unknown. Sure, there will be challenges. Yes, there will be days that you may not want to get out of bed because you are scared whitless by some of the daunting tasks ahead of you. But remember, life’s a journey, not a destination. Small steps taken over time will eventually achieve big results.

Shake the shackles. Your future is waiting!

 May Your Cup Always Be Full,

Emerging Princess
