If we let our past rule the present then we will be unable to change ourselves, let alone define our future. So we must let go of our past so we can fully live now in the present. Once we do this we let go of the power of past that has a held over our lives now.
We have to make the choice to let the past go and live now and define our future. Once we choose to do this we create the intention of living in the now which gives us the power to define our future.
So live now, create and design your dream life and define your future in what you want to do and how you will live.
