This year, I performed a simple ritual on my birthday that has set me free. I wrote down all of my regrets and bad decisions from the past, things I did which I was not proud of, etc., on post-it notes, then put the notes inside an envelope. I sealed the envelope, then shredded it. The simple ritual allowed me to say goodbye to regret and goodbye to the past.
It was a tangible farewell which set me free from the chains of regret and remorse, which can no longer haunt me.
Instead, I am now free to embrace my future with a clean slate.
And boy does it feel good.
