Dash of Sass: Let Today Be Today

YesterdayWhat if we just let today be today and let yesterday keep all of yesterday’s:

(Insert anything else here)

Today is Monday. Let it be Monday. Not last Tuesday. Not last October. Not 3 years ago. Let this moment be everything it’s trying to be and stop crowding it with yesterday’s nonsense! You don’t have to hold onto the pain of the past. You simply DON’T. You can open your hands & let it fall, without any pomp or circumstance or apologies at all. (And while you’re at it – don’t crowd today with tomorrow either.) Yes?

    Hi Mandy, yes for me too today. I was actually going through my Stash book (small sized scrapbook that I also use to keep info on my faves, a few photos, cool events, etc)…and I did like you wrote here and what I had read in your book. Of course, about a former boyfriend. lol. I feel so much better, and of course I prayed and thanked God for His help (and also yours via your book). Awesome!

    Are you reading my mind? I woke up this morning with this thought- Love yourself. Give yourself permission to do so. But in order for that to happen you must forgive yourself 1st. In order to move forward let go of the past and move forward ❤️❤️❤️

    This is exactly what I need to do and the hardest thing to accomplish. I want to know why I wasn’t the one….and I will never get to know that answer. One day….one step…and your words help so much. Bless you.

    I love the single woman! When I was a single woman these wonderful words of wisdom help me get through a major heartbreak from my ex. After fully taking in the advice I moved on and found my soulmate! I am happier than I have ever been. Although i still struggle with the past hurt. I feel I really needed the advice to let the past go and move on and live the happy life I now have!

    I woke up at 4:00 am, with that knowing sense of pain and hopelessness of being alone again. Not feeling like anyone else could ever really get what I am feeling . Your close. Thanks for putting your words to pen.

    I love it. I think I’ll let today be today and leave old stuff in yesterday. I’m tired of carrying it around anyway.

    this is for me.
    if I can just let yesterday be yesterday and today be today
    I will live a very free life.
    Nice one.
    I will put that to practice.
    thanx a million Mandy

    I needed to read this. It’s hard to know when you are using the wisdom from the past versus reacting on automatic because of something on the past that you’re projecting and misinterpreting onto the present.

    How do you do that when all you want and all you need is to hear from the one person that calms your soul?

      Hi Tammy. I don’t know everything…but I do know that expecting another person to calm your soul is placing a great deal of weight on their human abilities. I think you have to find that peace from God or from within yourself. Unhappiness and dissatisfaction and unrest come from somewhere deeper within, and even if this person were to call you, it might bring temporary relief and address the symptom…but it wouldn’t bring lasting peace and address the bigger issue. My best advice is to work on finding happiness with yourself and then it will extend outward. Another person can never bring you happiness and peace if you don’t already possess it.
