Ever had someone tell you that you need to get over “it”? Ever felt that your past was interfering with your future? Ever felt stuck and unable to move forward?
Here’s some helpful wisdom from Jeffrey R. Holland that can help you learn how to get over it.
“The past is to be learned from but not lived in. We look back to claim the embers from glowing experiences but not the ashes. And when we have learned what we need to learn and have brought with us the best that we have experienced, then we look ahead and remember that faith is always pointed towards the future.”
About the Past
- It is to be learned from not lived in.
- It doesn’t help to obsess about the ashes of your failures and disappointments. Worrying about what happened won’t change what happened. There are no do-overs, just I’ll-do-better-the-next-time’s.
- Hold up the glowing embers of your past successes and happy times as beacons to light your way. Let their warmth cover you with confidence that your future will be bright.
Remember: Faith is always pointed forward!
