Getting Past your Past

Getting Past your Past

No matter how Strong, Determined, and level-headed you may be… there is always something in your past that you struggle to leave behind. No matter how big or small, your past can haunt you like a bad dream each day of your life, and sometimes we are not even aware of the impact of our past, the choices we made, and even the people in it until we are forced to confront it head on.

Burying your past may seem like a temporary solution; However, this is one of the most misleading habits that we create for ourselves. Just as if you took something that you wanted to hid and buried it in your back yard, you will think about it daily and know that eventually it WILL resurface again. This is why we must kick the habit of “hiding” our past. I learned this in just a matter of seconds as a man named Brian Perry stood in front of a 500+ people congregation and said “You can NOT trade one bad habit for another, that’s like trading seats on the Titanic, the ship is still going to sink… And you’re still going down.”

Try today to remember that one sentence as you move forward with your life. Do not let your past steal your future, and relieve yourself of those weights. It all starts will understanding and accepting the fact that there is something we have neglected to “deal with”… and when you take that very first step you are able to free yourself of the burdens of life and move forward in this moment.
