One of my favorite things to do on a Saturday morning is get up, wash my face, throw my hair in a high pony tail (J-Lo Style lol) and make my coffee.
I heard a song lyric that said, “Got the past behind me like my ponytail,” and I absolutely love that. This is a hard concept for people, like myself, that are fixers. We want everything to be discussed and worked out. If there’s a problem we want to solve it and fix it before we move on from it, and when that doesn’t happen it’s hard to let it go.
I have found that I feel most at peace when I live in the present moment. It’s hard to do, but when I let yesterday go, even if not everything was fixed or healed, I am more at peace. Ultimately there is nothing we can do about yesterday, it’s gone. We need to learn to address things as they come up. If something needs to be fixed or discussed, it needs to be done so at the moment, or as close to the moment as possible, because once the moment has passed, especially an entire day, it does zero good to bring it back up. So work on staying present and doing what needs to be done to give your life the most peace in each passing moment.
I can’t really promise you anything, but I can tell you staying present, keeping that “past behind you like your ponytail,” can bring peace, at least it has for me.
I hope that at least for today, in this moment, you will enjoy yourself, love yourself, and most importantly, just take care of yourself. We only live this day once and I hope you make it as beautiful as you can.
