Now the monkey has a choice, either to let go of the nuts and be free or hang on to the nuts and get caught.
Guess what it picks every time? He hangs on and gets caught.
We are not monkeys but we have a similar flaw in our character. We hang on to things that keep us from going forward in life and being free to pursue our dreams.
We keep rationalizing by saying, "I cannot do this because . . ."
whatever comes after the word "because" are the things we are hanging on to which are holding us back.
We hold on to habits, people, memories, and things which are holding us hostage.
“Renew, release, let go. Yesterday’s gone. There’s nothing you can do to bring it back. You can’t “should’ve” done something. You can only DO something. Renew yourself. Release that attachment. Today is a new day!” ― Steve Maraboli, Life, the Truth, and Being FreeOne last thought on how to move forward; keep your eye on the goal:
I've got my eye on the goal, where God is beckoning us onward—to Jesus. I'm off and running, and I'm not turning back. Phillipians 3:14 (The Message)
