What once was is no longer. The passing day and moments are not to be held onto but nurtured in the moment of the time. The past serves each of you but it is not meant to be a burden to carry forward. It is meant to be the moment that is no longer. There is nothing wasted. It is as it must be.
Start viewing what you have and what you are experiencing differently. Your perceptions are often skewed. When you learn to open up, you may see things from a different vantage point. Most of learning is also working on your perceptions and how they serve you. What we hold onto and what we are willing to let go of, will often change our day and moment. If you can learn to experience through different perceptions, you will often get a clearer picture.
