The past has no power over me. As I move forward, I AM energized with the excitement of new beginnings

When you are around someone who lives passionately in the present moment, do you feel uplifted? On the other hand, how do you feel when you are with someone who can’t seem to let go of the past?

If we are consumed with unpleasant thoughts and emotions from past events, what are we creating in our present? Are those thoughts moving us into new opportunities or slowing our progress? The past itself has no actual power over us because it is gone, but the memories and feelings can if we let them.

Learning and growing from our past is important but we can only make a difference in the present moment. If we hold on to painful memories and continue to live with suffering we are not living with joy. If we blame our life on events from the past, we are not being accountable for the present. If we give in and don’t take the initiative to change something for the better because “it’s always been that way” we are not taking control of our future.

There are many ways we can help ourselves improve our lives. One way is to use affirmations. They can inspire, remind, guide and keep us focused on what we intend to achieve. For more information visit Vision Makers at

To improve your life, improve your thoughts. Leave behind the concerns of the past, allow yourself to release suffering and step into the present moment where you can move forward and be energized with the excitement of new beginnings.

The past is un-changeable. The NOW is create-able. Release your emotional charge on the un-changeable past so that you can be a dynamic creator right now.

YOU are worthy of your dreams!
