Positive Thought For the Day ~ Live Now

You can live in the past, or you can live in the present but you cannot live in both. Living takes place in the present with an eye toward tomorrow. Be grateful for what was and move on. Life calls us to live and enjoy the moment, to continually grow, and learn from every experience.

Positive Thought of the Day ~ Moving Toward Tomorrow

Don’t dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer.

~Denis Waitley


NOTE: It’s good to understand what went wrong and learn how to prevent it from happening again. It’s even better to shake the dust off our feet and move forward leaving the past behind. For the confident, the future will always be better than the past. 

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ Close the Door to the Past

Yesterday is Over – It’s All About Today & Tomorrow

To live a stress-free life, you have to stop living in your past. I know it seems like fun to compare everything in your present to your past, and to experience the present through past-colored glasses, but it actually isn’t.

When you wear past-colored glasses, you can’t truly experience the present for what it is. Your boyfriend or girlfriend gets compared to a list of expectations and failed relationships rather than recognized for the unique blessing they are in your life. Your boss gets compared to all the bosses who came before her. Your friends’ ability to parent gets compared to your parents’ ability to parent.

Everyone deserves to stand on their own past-free merit.

NOTE: We frequently accept rules  about the past that determine how we live today. If the rules are no longer valid, drop them quicker than you would drop a burning hot charcoal.

Feeling Good Tip of the Day ~ You’ll Feel Better if You Get in Touch with Your Body & Feelings

Stop Living Only in the Past and the Future, Get Present in the Moment

Being present in the moment involves being in your body and feeling your feelings—two things that lots of folks actually don’t know how to do.

Ask yourself these two questions: What does fear feel like in your body? What are you afraid of?

If you don’t know the answer to these questions, you probably aren’t present in the moment. Being present involves vulnerability, humility, and openness.

Being in the past or the future involves living in your head and ignoring what’s going on in your body and emotions.

The past and the future stop being so relevant and intriguing when you’re able to get in your body and feel your feelings. When you can do these two things, you actually want to be in the present moment. Try these tips: How to Live in the Moment and Stop Worrying.


Positive Thought of the Day ~ Love Looks Forward

Love looks forward, hate looks back, anxiety has eyes all over its head.” Mignon McLaughlin

Love is all. Love wins. Love never looks back. It looks forward with hope knowing everything will turn out.

Love Always Wins

Positive Thought of the Day ~ Eyes Focused Ahead

Fix your eyes forward on what you can do, not back on what you cannot change.” ~ Tom Clancy

We can’t change the past. Accept what happened give it all you got to make today and tomorrow better. Looking backwards is a waste of emotional and mental energy. Our future lies ahead of us. Look forward, look ahead, and look up.

Positive Thought of the Day ~ Focus on the Future for Direction & Purpose

The past is a place of reference, not a place of residence.” – Roy T. Bennett

Research has shown that people who have a positive outlook towards the future and are able to visualize a fulfilling future are more likely to take actions that lead to positive outcomes. Focusing on the future can also help us create a sense of purpose and direction in our lives, which can be beneficial for our mental and emotional well-being.

There are only memories behind us. Some good and some painful. The future is not behind us. It is in front of us. Whatever the past, let it go and turn toward tomorrow. Walk in the sunlight without fear. You can handle everything that comes your way.

Today’s Inspiration ~ The Way to Use Time

“The past is behind, learn from it. The future is ahead, prepare for it. The present is here, live it.”

~ Thomas S. Monson

Today’s Positive Thought ~ You Are Not Your Past

“I can’t go back to yesterday – because I was a different person then (Lewis Carroll).” Yesterday is an illusion, its only connection to reality are our memories and how we choose to interpret memories (e.g. photos, digital material). Where it’s happening is now. When we let our memories decide who we are or how we should act, we become prisoners to the past. We’re different now than we were then. We’ve paid our dues. We are free from our past. We have experiences that taught us important lessons. Let the past go and live today. Good things are coming your way. The only way you can see them is if you are looking ahead.
