1/14: “Well, I don’t have time for that kind of nonsense.” Me, neither, and neither do you!
“When a man reaches 90 years of living, he is tempted to look back on his life, to evaluate, to consider his triumphs and mistakes. Often he might think, “What if I had done this instead of that?” or “If only I had that to do over.”
Well, I don’t have time for that nonsense.
I look forward, have always done so.”
— Daniel MacGregor from Nora Roberts “The MacGregor Brides
“I don’t have time for that nonsense.”
Neither do I, and, dare I say it, neither do you.
When we start letting go of each 24 hour period, we start to become present to our lives and to the actual unfolding that is happening right before us, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute, breath by breath.
When we learn to let go of what was, over and over and over again, we start to see what is.
When we start to see what is, with fresh energy and clear eyes, then we can start to imagine our way forward.
When we let go of what was, when we let go of yesterday, over and over and over again, we start to understand flow, and we start to see the path unfolding before us.
Looking back instead of being here now?
I don’t have time for that nonsense. I’ve got life to be lived. And so do you.
Here’s my favorite way to let go of the past 24 hours. You can do this every night right before sleep.
Take a nice breath in. Let it go with an audible sigh. Stretch your toes and let the energy move down to, and release from, your feet. Repeat. Then, as you inhale, say to yourself: “I freely release this day, and all that came with it.” And on the exhale, imagine you are releasing the day from your body and from your energy as you exhale or blow out, long and loud.
