I recently heard the phrase “stop hoping for a better past”, and while that maybe isn’t quite what you or I would expect to hear, it really hit home with me. We’ve all been through something in our past that really hurt our hearts, and we wish we could change. How much time, energy, and attention are you still giving to hoping for a better past though, and how is it affecting you now?


In today’s episode, I’m talking about:

-All of your past experiences that have shaped you and taught you something, and also made you who you are today

-Understanding that who you really are should matter more than what others think

-Why worrying about your past will keep you from moving forward with your present, and your future


If you continue being angry at the fact you didn’t have a better past experience, then you’re not living; life is meant to be lived! If you’re really struggling with some of your past issues, therapy may be a great option for you (it’s helped me tremendously). Once your ‘stuff’ is out and you’ve worked through what you needed to, it’s gone, and it doesn’t have a permanent residency within you anymore.


I want you to find what lights up your soul and focus on being more in the present; this is what’s going to create a beautiful future for you!
