Paul’s FREE Weekly Splash of Inspiration for 12,000+
The brightest future will always be based on a forgotten past;
you can’t go forward in life until you let go of your past failures and heartaches.

Let Go of the Past
Let go…of guilt; it’s okay to make the same mistakes again.
Let go…of obsessions; they seldom turn out the way you planned.
Let go…of hate; it’s a waste of love.
Let go…of blaming others; you are responsible for your own destiny.
Let go…of fantasies; so reality can come true.
Let go…of self-pity; someone else may need you.
Let go…of wanting; cherish what you have.
Let go…of fear; it’s a waste of faith.
Let go…of despair; change comes from acceptance and forgiveness.
Let go…of the past; the future is here – right now.

This week we welcome some folks who help keep the state of Washington up and running. At the
Executive Assistants Group Conference we spent some time exploring what tasks we needed to spend
less time on so we could have more time for the people and activities we would like more time for. I
was thinking about this today as I prepared to organize some of my storage closets that have become a
bit messy; a task that always starts out with throwing out old STUFF that I just don’t need to keep
So, my ripply friend, I wonder if you might have some OLD STUFF in your head or your heart or your
soul that might need to be thrown away to make room for renewed energy and passion? I challenge
you this week to spend a few moments writing down a quick list of STUFF that has been weighing you
down, and then shred it or burn it or crumple it up and LET GO!
