I wanted to get this up on the site sooner, but editing this image and finding the right quote took some extra time.

This success wallpaper is entitled, "Release", and it is my sixth new wallpaper for this year, and my 122nd design overall for the site.

Recently, certain events in my life have caused me to reflect on how I perceive things. After much inward evaluation, I made up my mind to alter the way how I've been "carrying" certain feelings and beliefs.

Everyone faces challenges at different points in life. Everyone also encounters people who wrong us, or situations that just don't seem fair. Despite all this, we also compound how this affects us by hanging onto the negative emotions that those disappointments create, causing even more damage. What we need to do is let those things go and move on.

Inwardly, we need to forgive those in our lives who have offended us. Not really for them, but for ourselves. When we let go of past pain, we enable ourselves to be free. Holding onto bitterness and anger only brings us down, and allows others to get the best of us. One can use bitterness and anger as fuel, but you can only go so far. That type of fuel burns out fast and burns you out at the same time.

The second type of negativity we tend to hold on to is that we can't forgive ourselves for past mistakes and failures. Holding onto these self-judgements really hold us down because not only is it a negative thought, but it also eats up any motivation for moving forward. Yes, we do need to learn from our mistakes, but even more importantly, we need to keep going forward in a positive direction.

You can't fly high in life when you've got those "weights" holding you down. When we release them, we release ourselves.

Yesterday's gone. You can't change the past, you can only change yourself. So let go and release. You can have a better tomorrow, and that starts today!
