Have you ever noticed the same emotions we carry to bed at night are the same emotions we wake up to in the morning?
When we decide to make peace with our past, the emotions carried day to day, week to week, person to person, place to place lighten. When we choose to let go of the hot coals we carry just in case we need to throw them at someone or something, the burns of our yesterdays begin to heal.
We can have peace. It begins when we open our hearts long enough to remove the hurtful emotions stored from our yesterday and the day before yesterday and the day before, before yesterday, etc. Peace is our natural state of being. But, peace can only find its place in our hearts when we let go of the past and begin again in the present.
