Today is not your past.  No matter what your past is, this moment does not have to be like the past.  You can make your own positive memories in this day. You can learn from the past but you can also let go of the emotions attached to it and begin a whole new way for yourself.  You can let the past go.

Do your best not to compare every experience or holiday to your past. Make new memories that you love and can enjoy.

You may have had a few experiences of the past that come back to you and make you feel less than positive but you truly can let go of those thoughts and feelings and know and believe that this moment can be created completely anew through your thoughts, feelings, and actions.

How about creating some great positive memories today?
