Make Peace With Your Past

peace of mindMake peace with your past but also make peace with the fact that this past no longer exists.

I’ve made much of my income from talking about my past. This is the way life is for anyone who writes a popular memoir–at least until they write another memorable ¬†book. But there came a time when I was sick of talking about the past, because each telling made me sick. I had moved on, but the income I received from recounting mistakes and traumas was too significant to pass up. What was I to do? I prayed and meditated over this until, basically, I came to peace with my past. I was able to see only the blessing in my recounting. I was able to detach myself enough that I did not relive my memories; I simply shared them. I prayed before each speech as usual, only adding a request to God: Keep me grounded in the present while letting me use my past to help heal others.
