Sometimes I tend to hold on the things in my past and these things keep me from seeing the future. Still working to let go of habits, routines, and even people that existed during a time of darkness in my life and did not contribute to anything positive and productive. Things that existed during a time of irresponsibility and carelessness. I find myself frequently reflecting back on the way things were before I had any responsibilities and thinking "If I knew then what I know now!"
We live and we learn and through trials, tribulations, and mistakes, we emerge to become a better person over time. If things aren't the way you would like them to be, think of a time when it was worse, a time when you may not have been loved by someone you love, a time where if you passed, there was no one to continue you legacy, or a time where you thought you had it all, only to realize there was no one to share it with. Be thankful for the life and health you do have, and share your love with the world!
