RELEASING THE PAST

Living in the Present


Some of us waste time brooding over past failures and lost opportunities. Since the past is beyond our reach, we can’t change anything that Happened. We do, however, have the power to change the way we view the present. We can begin by realizing that our past troubles really may have been valuable lessons.

We can also get a better perspective by Releasing the idea that anything from the past controls our future. The real meaning of the saying “With God, all things are possible” is that our Higher Power can transform anything that happened in our past. AA has had its share of miraculous changes that came to people who seemingly had lost all hope. These changes have included miraculous restorations in health, finances, and relationships.

A new saying is that something or some person who bothered us in the past is history, as far as we’re concerned. Let’s put history where it belongs—on the shelves and away from our daily thinking and activities.

I can be a new person today and every day. The past cannot control or limit me, but I do benefit from its lessons.
