Some Talking Points from Carol Barkes on
How to Let Go of the Past:
1. Our brain embeds what we focus on. Consequently, if we stay rooted in the past, so does our brain. Instead, when you find yourself go back over the past, stop yourself and change your thinking to be future focused. We are the only animal which has the ability to observe our thoughts. Consequently, we are given a huge gift of being about to notice our thoughts. Take advantage of that.
