"The past is in your head. The future is in your hands."

Listen Now:

Deciding to be positive can dramatically change the face of your life. If we can learn to default to positivity, the world will be a better place to be in. It all starts with a conscious choice.

With that in mind, today's quote is,“The past is in your head. The future is in your hands”.

The first half of the quote states, "the past is in your head". I interpret this as the past is a memory. Yes, it’s an important part of who you are today, but it is no longer actively in your life.  In our memories we can look back at the injustices that we were witness to, the mistakes we made, or the opportunities we missed, but it’s a slippery slope. What’s in our past can’t be changed. I understand that major life events could have been life altering, especially negative ones, but again, it has contributed to the person you are today, which is something worth celebrating. Acknowledging the past, and the role it played in your life, is an important step to the next phase.

The second half of the quote states,“The future is in our hands”. Similar to how the past shaped who we are now, the present will shape who we become. Our future ready to be made and will be molded by our own hands. Choosing positivity today will create positivity tomorrow.

Remember, the only moment we can control is the present. It is our responsibility to squeeze everything we can out of it.
