We Are Our Past And Present Rolled Together

Updated on October 11, 2012

What Amazing Things We Have Done

To often we forget all the hardships and struggles we have faced

We push them out of our memory or smother them like a fire until it goes out

As the years pass and we grow older it is easier to let all our troubles go bye bye

On occasion we will feel the pressure of a past bad memory take hold

Even if it is only for a second we can feel how intense it still is

Then rethink and remind ourselves that was a different time and place

We are a much smarter person

We made it and it is time to release this burden that has troubled my mind so

Say to yourself I am a better person because of these mistakes I have made

I have learned my lesson and I am not afraid

My good thoughts now are improving my life every day

From the smallest notion to every emotion in feeling a life filled with happiness

My body is healthier

My mind is always working on ways to make my life better

I surround myself with good people who will not drag me down

Those people who have done me harm have no power

They are like dirt that I sweep away

It might come back but it will never stay

So I give thanks to myself for surviving all my close calls and near disasters

For I am here now and that is what matters

      Uplifting thoughts never let anyone bring you down. We must be masters of our own future which sometimes does reflect our past.
