Let go of the past for it belongs in the past. Its mission has been accomplished and delivered as instructed.

Those chains you’re holding onto are bruising your delicate hands. Your palms are red and your fingers are blistered. Don’t you see that with each passing day you keep holding onto those chains, it’s bleeding you and soon will leave long lasting scars that will reflect deep within your soul?

You took those shackles by yourself and placed then on your feet. You’re unable to move because it’s weighing you down and soon, you will stagger and fall. Don’t you see that when you fall, you will find it so hard to rise because your hands and feet are bound?

Now, you sit on the chair, unwilling to get up; not even ready to rock it back and forth, perhaps the rhythm will bring you back to life and remind you of all the good things you have allowed pass you by. Don’t you see that as you sit, seconds are becoming minutes, minutes are becoming hours, hours are becoming days, days are becoming nights, nights are becoming weeks, weeks are becoming months and months are becoming years?

The world will not wait for you to decide when it pleases you to let go of the chains and shackles of the past. Decide today; decide now to get up from that chair of sorrow, regrets, heartbreaks and failures. Let go of the past and embrace now while hugging the future.
