Thinking back, I’m remembering how I made some really bad choices when I was younger. Some stupid choices, some embarrassing choices, some just very bad, at the spur of the moment.
At some point, I woke up, and I started really thinking about the choices I was making. I started caring what the outcome would, or could be. I started caring about the people who were helping to influence my decision-making.
At some point I decided to take my life in a direction that would be good for me, a positive direction, one where my prior bad choices and life happenings could be used to encourage others, and help with their emotional healing.
Wow do I have a long way to go to reach some of my own personal goals. But, wow have I come a long way from the person I was 10, 20, even 30 years ago.
What an incredible journey this has been.

Lately I have been trying to focus on the goodness and peace that is happening in the present and not focus on the hardships of the past. It’s a little difficult because pain is sticky. But I know with practce I will leave that mindset behind.

You are well on your way to receiving God’s healing. I love looking back on my life and asking Him, “When did You make that change in me? I didn’t notice that was gone, when did You remove that? Thank You!”.
