Living with the past…


Each of has a past. I promise you there will be good, bad, love, joy, tears, shame and the absolutely horrible…

Each of us has these elements in our past. There are no exceptions… Everyone… Everywhere…

 

Looking at the Past

Looking at the Past

So what do we do about this?

Do we allow our past to shape our future?

Some may say that we have no choice – in part that is true…

If you have to live with the consequences of wrongdoing, mistakes, minor and major glitches, it, may seem like you cannot escape your past.

 

Regret

Regret

Regret is something we all have…

Here is the good news…

Our future is not determined by what we did, but by what we do…. NOW!!!

 

Forgive YOURSELF

Forgive YOURSELF

We are pretty adept at forgiving others…

If we can do the same while looking in the mirror… (Insert ah-ha here…)

Our future is determined by how we react to our circumstances…

 

Joy and happiness

Lesson…

Being Thankful

Being Thankful

 

Thankfulness is the most important element in determining your future…

Your future is shaped by what you focus on… How you CHOOSE to see things… How you react to the various things that happened to you, are still happening, and may continue to happen to you…

This is what defines YOU…

Your character…

Your identity…

  1. I love this viewpoint… our past can be a burden that weights us down or it can be a stepping stone towards our goals. Our mistakes can be used as experience to elevate us to the position we want to be in.
