The past is gone, and it’s up to you to create a better future. I once heard a sermon by the great Toure Roberts where he says “The dumbest thing you can do is wish something didn’t happen.”
A light bulb clicked on for me at that moment, and I decided to stop living in the past. The fact is by now you’ve made some mistakes, some big ones. Some of them may literally impact you for the rest of your life, but I want you to consider that you have the power to create. The same way you may have created the unfavorable circumstances you currently deal with, you have the power to now create better circumstances. Don’t waste your time worrying about what’s already done. Focus on creating the new. Focus on making things right. Focus on that and be eternally freed from your past. It’s time.
