It is hard to say goodbye. The thought of letting some things in life go is a daunting task for many. However, in doing so we could potentially bring much needed peace into our lives.

Lettings some things in life go will help us to empty our minds and rid ourselves of the feeling of being stuck in a moment.

Even if you find yourself in a painful or unpleasant situation do not forget this will also pass and will eventually be replaced by moments of happiness and other emotions.

We must let go because more life events are on the way. We can concentrate on things happening right now and try to live to the fullest today rather than living in the past. The things we experience each day preoccupy us more than ever and are often more than enough to challenge us.

So once more what can we let go from our past? The right answer is whatever holds us back and keeps us from appreciating what we have today.

To successfully let go of some of our past memories – be it people, events or emotions – and focus on today requires one skill.

John Harricharan once wrote, “Peace is not achieved by controlling nations, but mastering our thoughts.”

He suggests that we must not focus on what influences us from the outside but rather that we ought to check our attitude and our thinking to make a real difference toward peace in our life.

Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it.”

Her words suggest that if we simply wait passively for peace to come our way, our life will potentially never experience the peace we hope to have.

Life is a journey that includes series of events and emotions associated with those events that take place constantly. Accepting such a fact can clear our mind and keep things much more simple.

A moment in our present life continues to pass and is replaced and filled with another moment in life.

We must take advantage when such moments are at our doorsteps.

I encourage you to remember that every day is another opportunity to make a difference toward peace. Proverbs 12:20 reads: “Deceit is in the heart of those who devise evil, but those who plan peace have joy.”
