Let Go Your PAST – Start Accepting Your Present

There is not set formula to live a HAPPY life. HAPPINESS comes from within. We need learn to be happy with ourselves. No one can make you happy, your happiness is your own responsibility. Don’t burden others for your Happiness.

I learnt that it’s never too late to REBUILD your own life. Life never came with a MANUAL anyway, so we are bound to make mistakes, right !!


I have learnt not to LIVE IN THE PAST rather focus on betterment of my present. No one can change the past, however we can change our Present by working towards it. Take every day has a opportunity to better your life and trust me you will thank Yourself oneday.

Let me tell you that story:-

I read a book once, In which it shows how a farmer catches a monkey.

A farmer in India wanted catch the monkey that was destroying his crops. He cut a small hole in a coconut, just big enough so that the monkey could slide its hand through. He put a banana inside the coconut, then tied it to the side of a tree. The monkey came up, smelled the banana, and stuck its hand into the coconut to grab the banana. When it tried to pull its hand out, because his hand was clenched in a fist holding the banana, it did not fit out of the small hole. And because the monkey refused to let go of the banana, the farmer was able to capture it. Had the monkey just let go, he would be free.

Much like the monkey with the banana, we have a tendency to hold on to things — things that don’t necessarily serve us.

“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
