“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forward.” – Kierkegaard
Lance Wubbels has captured the essence of the “live life forward” idea with these simple but powerful affirmations:
From this moment forward…I stop the blame game and excuses. I am responsible for my life and for where I am today. I cannot blame the people and circumstances in my past, and I refuse to hide behind my past mistakes.
From this moment forward…I take responsibility for my thoughts, beliefs, decisions, and actions. If I am unhappy with something in my life, the power to change lies within me.
From this moment forward…I rid my soul of all bitterness, grudges, rage and anger against others. I will forgive others and stop wasting my life by trying to get even. I will be kind and compassionate to others.
From this moment forward…I will focus on knowing what I desire in life and let it light a fire under me. I want to to run through life with passion.
-Taken from “Charging the Human Battery” by Mac Anderson.
