Let Yesterday Go

Welcome to the month of December, the most celebrated of all the months of the year!So many of us look forward to December , either because of the Christmas celebration or because of the “no work’’season which is an opportunity to rest and unwind. One of the strongest yokes that hold people down in life is their past For instance, people find it difficult to forget their past mistakes,losses, disappointments,failures e.t.c. Yet no one can move forward looking backward.
If you are going to move fast, you must forget your past. The fact is , there is no one without yesterday, but if you do not let it go, it will affect your today and may destroy your tomorrow. Know that the tomorrow ahead of you is greater than the yesterday behind you.

As the year is wonderfully winding up. I am beginning to peep delightly into the year 2011. Unfortunately, those who are still romancing their past, the unreached goals, unmet needs, success, regrets e.t.c would not find an interesting things to do.

If you want to move forward in every aspect of your life in 2011; you must leave behind you hurts, resentment, unforgiveness, envy, unhealthy relationships even your success because there are greater things ahead.

Disappointments, mistakes and failures are all indications that you are part of human race. If you think what happened to you or that which you are currently passing through has not happened to anyone before, you have allowed yourself to be deceived. People have passed through worst things and came out of it. So, you too will come out and come up. It is after you decide to let yesterday go that moving into your future becomes a possibility. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year in advance.


  1. One of the hardest things we will ever do is leave the past in the past and let it go. I have discovered that if I want to be truly happy, I cannot live in the past or the future. I must live in the present. Nice article.

  2. Letting go is very hard. Not all can forgive and forget yesterday. Dwelling on the hand you're dealt and playing it out can be confusing to some.

    My life is not what I would have dreamed of, but it is a pretty good life none the less.

  3. Thanks Patty and musingMom6.I appreciate your comment.

  4. Great post. Here is to a better 2011!


  5. Forgetting those things which are behind... Amen Adeyera!
    Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New
    Year too.

  6. We should learn from our past mistakes, but not let them define us or haunt us.

    Easier said than done, but it's definitely true.

  7. I struggle with the whole "letting go of the past" thing, too. I think often it's because I'm my own worst critic, so I judge myself for mistakes of the past. It is best, though, to just learn from those mistakes and move on.

    Great post!

  8. this is how people made it thru the Great Depression.It was bad,but they moved on.
