Put the Past Away

My Mama always said you’ve got to put the past behind you before you can move on. – Forrest Gump

The movie Forrest Gump is filled with things that Forrest’s mama told him, and while everybody knows that ‘Life is like a box of chocolate,” I think this quote is the best piece of advice Mrs. Gump gave us.  You have to put the past away.  You have to just let go before you can move on to bigger and better.

There are countless quotes about leaving the past where it belongs, and in fact, the title comes from the Third Eye Blind song, Jumper.  If so many people are saying to put the past away, I’m guessing it has to be super good advice.  Think about it, the past is like an anchor, holding on to you and dragging you down, when where you want to go is forward.  You need to let go of that anchor and start moving toward your future.

Figure out what is holding you back, or who is holding you back, and why. Or maybe it’s you.  Maybe you’re the one that’s holding on to the past, but it’s time to let go.  You need to figure it out so you can cut the times and put the past away.  Don’t stay stuck in the past, let it go and move on to a bigger and better future.  The one you’ve been dreaming about.
