How? With change. In order to live and be in the now, everything must change. The old and negative thoughts must die in order for you to be current. The past has to remain an illusion. You can’t keep reminding yourself that all this junk has happened, because that’s no way to live; that’s a way not to live. This is your life and it’s meant for living. Tell yourself that you want to live, and then attack it. Don’t look back — look forward and keep doing that. Our eyes are in front of us, and that’s for a reason. Time can make something weaker or stronger, depending on what you are made of or what you chose to do with it. What do you chose? If life is moving and you aren’t, do you want to just accept that yours is over at the very time when it should be beginning?
