STOP AND THINK – In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. (Mary Manin Morrissey, motivational speaker and author)

Morrissey suspects that some of us might “have one foot on the brakes.” Something in our past has kept us from moving forward. She suggests, “The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.” And she asks, “What is it you would let go of today?” We should release the fears of the past and concentrate on moving forward.

Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me. (Philippians 3:13-14)
