Hi there my beautiful lovelies! Hope you guys are doing well and staying safe. Yesterday, I spoke to you about living in the moment and acknowledging the past. Today, I want to talk to you about acknowledging and learning from the past. Learn from The Past – Don’t Dwell On It.
The Importance of the Past
Why is it important for us to learn from the past? According to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Department of History, “Because history gives us the tools to analyze and explain problems in the past, it positions us to see patterns that might otherwise be invisible in the present – thus providing a crucial perspective for understanding (and solving!) current and future problems.” Our past gives us the guide to live our present. It will be foolish of us not to seek guidance from our past and repeat the same mistakes again and again. As University of Wisconsin puts it nicely, “studying the diversity of human experience helps us appreciate cultures, ideas, and traditions that are not our own – and to recognize them as meaningful products of specific times and places. History helps us realize how different our lived experience is from that of our ancestors, yet how similar we are in our goals and values.”
Not to Dwell in the Past
However, it’s not healthy to dwell so much in the past. Our past should be there to guide us, not take over our present. It is not healthy to think so much about the past. It can stir up unpleasant memories and can enhance negative feelings knowing that there is nothing you can do to change the past. Letting go of the past can help you have a happy future. We should acknowledge our past, learn from it and then learn to move on. As one part of dealing with anxiety, I have learned to look at my past, learn from the good and the bad, and then move on. I will not change anything from the past, not even the negatives and regrets, as they are all part of who I am today. I acknowledge their existence and try to live in the moment with repeating the same mistakes. I am who I am today because of my past. Hence, I acknowledge my past, the good, bad, and the ugly, and tell myself it is just the past not my present and move on.

CAUSES CLOSE TO MY HEART

I consider myself fortunate to have good health, a full-time job, and a roof over my head. However, there are still so many people who are struggling to put food on their tables. Please join me to help those who are struggling. If you have good health, full-time jobs, and a roof over your head, please join me to help those who are struggling. Whether you donate $5 or $500, you will make a huge difference in someone’s life.
America’s kids need us. The coronavirus is closing schools nationwide, and millions of vulnerable children are losing the school meals they depend on. For some, it’s the only food they’ll receive on a given day. We have a plan to feed kids, but we need your help today to continue our work to ensure every kid gets three meals a day. You can click above to donate to mygofundme page donation going directly to the organization, or you can click on the direct link to the site.
PLEASE DONATE ANY AMOUNT YOU CAN AND SHARE THE POST WITH EVERYONE YOU KNOW.
Manna Food Center, a nonprofit organization, strives to eliminate hunger in Montgomery County through food distribution, education, and advocacy. Millions of children go to bed hungry in America every year, sadly it’s worse now! Today, 14 million children regularly miss meals — three times more than during the Great Recession and five times more than before the pandemic
Many parents have lost their job during the pandemic. Sadly, that shows no sign of stopping. Your donation can bring relief to the millions worried about where their next meal will come from. It’s even worse for Latino and Black families, whose rates of nutrition insecurity have spiked to 25% and 30%. In the world’s wealthiest country, this is unconscionable.
Even before the pandemic, the U.S. Department of Agriculture estimated 37 million people in America struggled with hunger and nutrition. The Centers for Disease Control reports 76% of people killed by COVID-19 had at least one underlying condition, most of which were diet-related. Diet-related diseases also fuel skyrocketing health care costs, which rose from 5% to 28% of the federal budget in the past 50 years.
Let’s make the world better, kinder, brighter. Every dollar you give will create real change. $1 will feed 5 hungry children here in the US, but $1,000 will feed 50,000 starving children overseas. Be the good in the lives of many by giving right now.
Your generous support will help me continue to bring content to you.
