Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. Release the hurt. Release the fear. Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life. What is it you would let go of today?
When I was young, Id watch guys on The Tonight Show, Buddy Hackett, guys like that, where all theyd be is funny. Later, I remember, on Late Night with Letterman, I remember hed have Jay Leno and Richard Lewis as first guests and the entire point was to entertain and be funny, and I think talk shows have kind of lost that.
