No matter what your past has been, you have a spotless future

We all make mistakes. We all look back and say “I could have done that different”. 

The truth is- things can’t ever go any different then how they went- because that’s the way they went. 

We make the best choices we can make with what we know in that present moment.

I am not the same person I was yesterday, one week ago, one year ago or 5 years ago. The perspective I have, the lessons I’ve learned and the tools I’ve acquired- they all transform my being from day to day. 

Don’t be so hard on yourself for mistakes you’ve made in your past. They are what they are- mistakes and they are in the past.Image

Mother Theresa said “Peace begins with a smile”- smile to yourself. Acknowledge your accomplishments and your mistakes – they can both be honored and recognized- they are a part of your history and what truly makes you YOU.

I would not be the person I am today (and I really love who I am today) if it were not for those past relationships that were painful and difficult. I would not appreciate my life and the simple moments of joy if it wasn’t for the times I was down and under.

I would not know how to truly trust myself and the inner voice of my heart if I did not know deceit and disappointment.

I would not appreciate true love if it was not for a broken heart.

The truth is, my inspiration comes from the challenging times. AND- the inspiration is available because I choose to be uplifted by the challenges rather than be upset. It’s a practice, a muscle you build time after time.

Know that nothing happens TO YOU. It happens FOR YOU. Everything that happens in your life- happens for your soul to grow and evolve. EVERYTHING.

Be blessed, my friend, and enjoy this ride called life.
