The Past, as much as it means something to us, cannot be any more, less, better, worse or different than it is…or was.
Many people like to say: It is what it is.
I prefer: It was what it was.
By simply leaving it in the Past, I can now get Present and that is where true Freedom lies.
Additionally, should I have hope for the Future, the best chance I have is to start from the Present, not the Past.
