Sometimes we end up in places we don’t want to be because of the choices we’ve made in the past. It would be nice if we could go back in time and do it again, but we can’t. It’s pointless to focus on what you would do differently if you could go back because you can’t. You can only live in the moment and move forward.
Here are some affirmations that will help you stop dwelling on the past and start focusing on the present:
1. I Am Grateful For What I Have Now
If you want to go back and do it again, you are likely not very grateful for where you are now. You wish things were different, which makes it hard to be grateful.
In order to focus on the present and future, you need to be grateful for what you have now. You need to focus on the good things that are in your life now. Gratitude will help you see that there is good in your life, even if it’s not what you want it to be.
2. I Am Moving Forward
The past is the past. You can’t change it, so there’s no use dwelling on it. You can only move forward.
How do you move forward?
Create a positive vision for your future. What do you want your life to look like? What kind of person do you want to be? Focus on these things and let go of the negative thoughts about your past.
And take action towards your goals. Once you have a clear vision for your future, start taking steps toward making it a reality. This could mean making some changes in your life, such as getting a new job or moving to a new city.
3. I Am Creating The Future I Want
The past is done. It’s time to focus on creating the future you want. This means taking action towards your goals and dreams. It means making things happen, instead of waiting for them to happen.
4. I Am Letting Go Of The Past
To move forward, you need to let go of the past. You need to forgive yourself for the mistakes you’ve made. You need to let go of resentments and grudges. You need to make peace with the past so you can focus on the present.
5. I Am Focusing On The Present
The present is where your power is. The present is where you can make things happen. You can’t go back and do it again, as much as you want to. So focus on the present and take action towards your goals.
6. I Am Living In The Moment
The moment is all you have now. Make the most of it! Live it to the fullest!
One way to do this is to focus on your breath. Notice how your chest rises and falls with each inhale and exhale.
Another way to live in the moment is to savor your senses. What do you see, hear, smell, taste, and feel? Pay attention to the details around you.
If you’re feeling restless, take a few minutes to do something calming, such as reading or listening to music.
It takes practice, but with time you’ll get better at living in the moment.
7. I Am Letting Go Of Regret
Regret is a waste of time. It’s pointless to dwell on what you could have done differently because you can’t do it again. All you can do now is learn from your mistakes and move forward.
8. I Am Making The Most Of Now
Now is all you have, so make the most of it! Don’t waste your time dwelling on the past and wishing you could do it again. Live in the present moment and enjoy doing what you are doing now.
9. I Am Letting Go Of Sadness
Sadness is a part of life, but it doesn’t have to consume you. If you focus on wanting to do it again, you will be sad. But, if you focus on the present moment, you will find that there is much to be happy about.
To let go of sadness, you can also:
- Talk to a friend or loved one about what’s making you sad. Sometimes it helps to talk about your feelings with someone who understands.
- Do something that makes you happy. Whether it’s listening to your favorite music, reading a good book, or going for a walk in nature, find something that brings a smile to your face.
- Think about the good things in your life. We all have something to be grateful for. Focusing on the positive can help balance out the negative emotions.
10. I Am Choosing Happiness
You can choose to be happy, regardless of your circumstances. It’s a choice that you make every day.
When you wake up, choose to be happy.
When something good happens, choose to be happy.
When something bad happens, choose to be happy.
11. I Am Letting Go Of Anger
Anger is a negative emotion that only causes problems. It doesn’t do any good to hold onto anger. Let the anger go and focus on positive emotions instead.
12. I Am Letting Go Of Fear
Fear is an illusion. It’s something that you create in your mind. It’s not real. So let it go and live without fear.
13. I Am Trusting The Process
Developing faith in the future is a great way to stop wishing you could go back and do it again. The past is done and the future isn’t here yet, so all you can do is trust the process. Trust that everything will work out the way it’s supposed to. Trust that you are exactly where you’re supposed to be.
14. I’m Good At Focusing On My Breath
When you’re feeling overwhelmed, take a deep breath and focus on the present moment. Breathe in and breathe out. Let go of your thoughts and just be. The more you affirm to yourself that you are good at focusing on your breath, the more you focus on your breath and become more present.
15. I Am A Relaxed Person
Relaxation is key to living in the present moment. When you’re relaxed, you’re not focused on the past or the future. You’re focused on the present moment. So take some time to relax and just be in the moment.
These affirmations can help you stop dwelling on the past and wishing you could do it again. Choose one or two that resonate with you and repeat them to yourself throughout the day. The more you remind yourself of these affirmations, the easier it will be to let go
