What does your future look like?

Hand holding eco light bulb on blue skyI’ve been in California training new coaches this week.
We talked a lot about focusing on the future,
And how powerful that is.

Most of us are past-focused.
We spend a lot of time thinking and talking about the past,
And how different we/our lives would be if our past had been different.
There’s no end to this because, of course, no matter how much we argue with it,
the story never changes.
And we never get to feel better.

I like to think that the past happened exactly as it was meant to happen.

All of it.

It’s not always easy to do, especially when really hard things happen,
like losing someone you really love earlier than you think was fair.
So I don’t try to figure out why it was supposed to happen.
And I don’t try to tell myself it was for the best.
Just that it was clearly meant to be this way.
How do I know?
Because it did.
No further explanation needed, because if I try to find an explanation, I’m back there again, living in the past and arguing with it.

I find that when I accept that the past happened exactly as it was meant to happen,
It frees me.
It neutralizes the painful parts.
And it allows me to be in the present,
And to focus on my future,
Which is where all possibility lies.

Sometimes, when I’m in the place of acceptance,
I will get insights about why things did happen the way they did,
Which never happens when I’m spinning around in my head with regrets and arguments.

My brain can only focus on one thing at a time successfully
(maybe it’s only me?)
And so it makes sense to me to focus on my future,
Which I can impact and influence,
Rather than my past, which is never going to change.

I love the idea of holding my future in my hands
Imagining what it looks and feels like…
And getting really excited and focused on creating it.

Next Wednesday, I start my new mindbodysoul cleanse class,
and we’re going to be spending a lot of time focusing on the future.
That’s because I want to teach you how to believe in a future that you can create,
No matter what your past has brought you.
It’s going to be a different class this time,
Focusing on our power to affect our lives.
I’m so excited!!!
It starts Wednesday, and I have three spots left, so if you’re interested, please email me now to see if this class is going to be a perfect start to launch you onto your future!!

About Forever Free with Bev Aron, Certified Weight Loss Coach

I work with emotional eaters who desperately want relief from emotional eating, but can't seem to do it on their own. They know they need to eat less and move more, but can't figure out why they aren't doing it. My specialty is showing them the why and the how. I also work with parents who are worried about their children's weight. I help those parents encourage their children to have a healthy body image and a healthy relationship with food.
