My message today is: It’s not about my past, it’s about where I am right now.
Does my past define me? NO, but it has played a part in how I have shaped myself.
Do we carry the past around with us? Yes, of course we do, the past is filled with lessons that we went through for a reason. If we left them on the side of the road and forgot them, we would just repeat them over and over again. So, our past does follow us in that way. We just need to not allow the past to interfere with our progress forward.
The past is for me to remember and keep those lessons learned, not for you to worry about.
The past does not define me, I define me. I choose the steps I take each and every day. The past taught me lessons that I shall not forget that help me make better choices in my walk.
