1. I can let the past go when it comes to my day-to-day life, and then someone from my family visits and they bring the past with them. It can take me up to 2 days to recover from such visits, which tells me I still have work to do.

    My feeling is that I am absorbing their issues rather than projecting my presence/presents. I allow it in rather than giving out.

    I’ve just been through a particularly difficult visit. Thank you for the reminder!

  2. Actually my blog began with two goals in mind, I was going through a dark time and I sought ‘positive quotes’ and while the amount of quotes I found were staggering, the quotes were just regurgitated by other people or at best added to a pretty graphic but there was nothing beyond the quote, nothing that applied them to daily life, so I started a blog with daily affirmational meditations to help people ‘go past the quote’ I named my blog Ascending Butterfly because that is how I perceive us all ‘on an upwards journey’. I had no idea just how many people were seeking the same support, something that wasn’t just a quote, something with more ‘meat’. Glad to have found your blog today, encouraging words indeed!

    I love this. If we keep thinking about our past we will never get the life we want, instead we’ll be to afraid to live.

  4. While sometimes the past can be annoying ( lol ), I think it’s there for one sole purpose – and that is to teach us life lessons to make us better individuals.

    Without the past, we won’t have a gauge or point of comparison of where we should be doing better so while it could be painful at times, it’s okay to look back once in a while and we’ll be reminded of how much better & brighter that future will be.

  5. Hi Karen,

    I needed to hear this message today. You can’t imagine how this year has gone, but I am grateful to know that I can leave it all behind and look toward the future.

    You’re a blessing to have in my life. Thank you for being there for me!
    – Bonnie
