Tunnel vision. This is how we go about our lives often times, unaware that we have the blinders on, unable to embrace and live in the present. If we’re not tormented by the shoulda, coulda, woulda’s of our past we’re plagued with the fear and uncertainty of our future. STOP IT!
What do we add to our lives by worrying? (Matthew 6:27) We can live our lives preparing to die only to have never lived. I’m the first to admit that I am guilty of fretting over things I have no control over and I have to tell myself daily….STOP IT!
So what if you made poor decisions in the past, that’s the beauty of maturing. I am so proud of the woman that I have become. She may have to enter situations with mustard seed sized faith but at least she has the gumption to keep trudging forward.
Let go of the past. It should only be used to admire how you’ve survived the worse and to treasure valuable memories. Don’t be too consumed with the future. Trust your instincts and your decisions. BE HERE! BE IN THE MOMENT! BE IN THE NOW!
