"When you let go of your past, your present truth emerges. It takes a lot of energy to carry your history with you all the time, and it clouds your connection to the Divine. So choose to become extremely curious about your new story, in what God has in mind for you now and for tomorrow. Then decide not to let your past define you anymore. Retire the old saga and move on. If you slip, and find yourself looking backward, stop by saying, "That's the old story of me. Let's talk about the new one."---Sonia Choquette
I read this in a brief, stolen quiet time I had today, and it touched me, just at the right time. I was impressed with the idea of how effective applying it would be, especially with respect to "victim stories" and "I have a problem with _____" stories, both of which really drain energy. I am going to apply this today.
