We must look back upon our previous years with reverence and humility. Be proud of all you have done (yes, ALL of it), because it has made who you have become. Regrets can haunt the best people until they realize that they deserve forgiveness from themselves. It’s easy to allow others to forgive you, but the real challenge is accepting forgiveness from yourself. If you have “shoulda-coulda-woulda” thoughts and feelings, release them and remind yourself it has all been part of your path for good reason. Now is the time to release ourselves from any prisons of the past in order to walk the path before us with grace and honor. It’s hard to see the future when you’re replaying the past. You are beautiful just as you are no matter what your history may be.
