Oftentimes, we look at our PAST, good and bad, and think to ourselves that we are glad..
those trials and tribulations,
Today, I would like to present a different perspective to you.
- If you experienced a childhood in which you were mistreated, rejected, neglected, discouraged, etc., do this today. Thank God that you made it through the treatment and that He has taught you not to treat anyone else in this manner.
- If you have lost a loved one through death, or divorce, or relationship issues, do this. Thank God for the time you were allowed to spend with that person and the memories, good and bad, you shared. Thank God for the growth you experienced, the knowledge or education you received that will enable you to know what’s right moving forward.
- If you have lost a job due to forced reduction or downsizing, thank God for the experience you accrued that you can use either in your next position or in your own business.
Many times, we look at letting go of the PAST as a bad thing with connotations of things being wrong about our coming out. But, that’s not always the case.
Letting Go of the PAST doesn’t mean you didn’t live it. It means…
you made it through,
you thrived in spite of it all!
Our PAST can be a catalyst for improving our outlook and perspectives in life… that is, if we will allow it to be this. PAST does not always mean something is bad. It can also mean that some things need to change.
Today and throughout this season of Thanksgiving, think on those things you have experienced and endured and find that Something you can be thankful for from the experience.
Be abundantly blessed! Happy Thanksgiving! #GodIsFaithful
