Why is there a fear of the past?
You lived it…
You survived it…
So – Learn from it.
Own it – because it is part of what made you who you are!
Then… you can tell your story as only you can tell it. Enlighten the world and make it a better place. In freeing yourself you end up giving others the courage to take that first step, own their past and begin living in the present and for their future.
So many people are walking around in the fog of their past. Not living in the present because the past is so heavy on their shoulders. Cast it off! Be done with it because your past does not control you! Do not allow anything negative that has happened to you dictate who you are! Your life is YOURS… walk in the glory of who you are!! You are a one of a kind, unique creation of God!
My husband keeps our house on 69 degrees in the summertime. When I walk outside my sunglasses immediately get foggy because of the temperature and humidity change. It is so bad I have to take them off and let them warm up and clear them before I can see! This is what I think living in the pain of the past must be like… walking out of the cold dark house into the sunshine and not being able to see! In order to walk and move forward I have to clean my lenses!
The beauty of the world is all around us. When you free your soul from hell and torment you will be able to see and appreciate all the beauty surrounding you. From the lady bug in the grass to a magnificent sunset, you will see things much clearer and with a new appreciation for life.
So, here is to walking into the sunshine, cleaning the lenses of our soul so we can appreciate what is in front of us and move forward.
