History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again.

Quickly let go

The energy you devote to being annoyed brings you nothing of value in return. So choose to quickly let go of your need to be annoyed.

The time and energy you put into being offended adds nothing positive to your life. So decide to quickly let go of your need to be offended.

Winning petty arguments will do nothing to enhance your relationships. So find a way to quickly let go of the need to prove that you’re right.

There are many things that can hold you back. But they’ll hold you back only as long as you continue to hold on to them.

Each day is filled with plenty of valid reasons to be angry, resentful, jealous, frustrated, offended and annoyed. All that negativity can stop you cold if you allow it to take up long-term residence in your life.

So make the choice to quickly let it go. And free yourself to soar above it all.

— Ralph Marston
