Whatever did, or did not happen, and whatever scale, and to whom, by whom, if we do not let go of the past we are certainly doomed. Dragging the past, in any way, on any scale, just contaminates any possible major fresh start.

And a major new start comes from us — our hearts.
Are we holding on the the past — in any way?
For most people — yes.

Try this. Take a moment, and let go of the past.
It is not even about forgiveness, it is just letting it all go.
If you really allowed that then you will be feeling much lighter and light-hearted.

Life starts now — this very minute.
