Past, present, and future identities

  • Your present identity is based on what you said yes to yesterday, a product of your previous decisions.
  • Your future identity is what you say yes to today, a product of your current decisions.
  • Your past identity is what you’ll say yes to tomorrow. No matter how dark or conflicted your past, it can be transformed. As you change, the meaning of your past changes, as does the memory of it.
