Etiam pulvinar consectetur dolor sed malesuada. Ut convallis euismod dolor nec pretium. Nunc ut tristique massa.

Nam sodales mi vitae dolor ullamcorper et vulputate enim accumsan. Morbi orci magna, tincidunt vitae molestie nec, molestie at mi. Nulla nulla lorem, suscipit in posuere in, interdum non magna.

I can let go of the mistakes of my past.

My past mistakes are just that – part of my past. I live in the present because I cannot change the past and know not what the future holds. I may only influence the present, so I make the most of every moment in the here and now.

Just as all past experiences are part of what I am today, my mistakes have helped me grow and develop my inner strength. I appreciate them for what they have brought to me.

If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

If you only have a hammer, you tend to see every problem as a nail.

I refuse to fret over my past mistakes. Worrying about something I cannot change brings me unnecessary stress and causes me to waste my time and energy. I choose, instead, to devote my focus on what I can do right now to improve my life.

If I am dealing with unpleasant consequences of a past mistake, rather than bemoaning the mistake, I seek solutions to my challenges.

Mistakes are like blocks in the road or boulders on my path. They may seem immense, but I can go around them and continue on my journey. I leave them behind without another thought. I would never think of picking them up and carrying them with me!

In the same way, I leave my mistakes behind me and continue in my journey. I do what I need to do to get past them and then move on.

Today, I choose to live in the moment without worrying about my past mistakes. As I do, I feel the joy that can come with the ultimate focus on the present.

Self-Reflection Questions:

1. After I make a mistake, how much time do I spend wishing it had not happened?
2. How have I been made better by a challenge?
3. Do I carry my mistakes with me as baggage?
