Life happens quickly, and it’s almost too easy to get so caught up in what’s happening physically that we forget to attend to the spiritual part of ourselves. We let the outside world get to the inside of us, and some don’t even know that this is taking place or what to do about it. To release worry, anger, frustration, doubt, and a plethora of other negative states of mind, and to achieve peace, you have to surrender to serenity. One way to surrender to serenity is to write. Write it all down. Get it all out. This will make room for the good stuff to flow into your life.
Many people have asked me, especially over the course of the last few months, how I lost so much weight. By the way, the last time I checked, I was down 59 lbs. I have freely told each person who has asked about my weight loss journey, but I don’t think anyone has believed me. I know that we live in a world where people claim to pop pills and lose weight, get bigger butts, and more, but true results come from within. Read more
I have said this so many times that it almost seems ridiculous that I don’t already have a post about it. We all have experiences that we have endured that would help someone else, if we would only share our story with him or her. I have said, in one of my YouTube videos, that I believe all of our purposes are connected, and that we are here to serve one another.

Are you one of those people who love to sit and reminisce about the past? Anytime friends and families get together, it seems that they spend hours talking about what used to be and what happened way back when. Today, especially in the media, it is almost common place to take a stroll down memory lane in order to dig up a person’s past dirty laundry. Although looking back on some things may seem harmless, there is really only one reason you should ever look back at your past.
The Only Time It’s Okay to Look Back at Your Past
The one and only time you should be looking back is to see how far you’ve come from there. You might believe that you aren’t strong enough and can’t handle certain things, but if you look back, you may discover that you have already overcome those very things. Most likely, those things have even made you a stronger and better person for having experienced them.
If you have people in your life who insist on bringing up things from your past that show you in a negative light, or that causes you pain to think about, you might want to rethink your relationship with those people. Your past is just that. You learn from it and move on.

Don’t continue to look back and live in those moments time and again. Don’t beat yourself up for not knowing something, or for not doing something different. Everything in your life happened exactly the way it was supposed to happen. Otherwise, something different would have occurred. Understand that your past is just a marker in time.
Take a moment to think about who you are today. Now, reflect on who you used to be. How far have you come? How much have you grown, since then?
