In this lifetime, we will mourn and hold funerals for all the versions of ourselves that we’ve been.
You aren’t who you were in the past anymore.
You are who you are now, here, in this present moment.
Thank your past self for helping you survive.
Thank your past self for being strong and enduring pain.
Thank your past self for doing their best and fighting hard.
Thank your past self for being brave.
Thank your past self for getting back up and continuing to try.
Thank your past self for making you who you are today.
Thank your past self for making mistakes which you’ve learned from.
Thank your past self for letting you move forward.
Thank your past self because even if they no longer resonate or align with who you are today… you couldn’t have done it without them.
Let go in order to be you are now
It’s understandable if you’re mourning for who you used to be and feeling all of the feels that come with change: sadness, joy, fear, excitement, anxiety and elation.
You’re allowed to mourn for who you used to be whether you were proud of past you or not.
And when you’re ready, truly let go… in order to be who you are now 💐
Who you are becoming.
Who you choose to be.
Whilst remembering with great gratitude to the past you, who has enabled you to be who you are today and where you are today.
How you show up today, will result in who you become in this moment, in tomorrow, in the future.
