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.

The Secret: Be What You are Destined to Be…

The Secret: Be what you are destined to be...

Destiny: (noun) -destiny or “fate” is a predetermined course of events. Based on the belief that there is a fixed “natural order” to the Cosmos (the universe referred to as an order system).

As Cliché as it may sound, finding ourselves is a vital factor to becoming happy with our own lives; However, we cannot confront our identity until we learn to relieve ourselves of the fake, people pleasing, power seeking individuals that we have become. To take on this project we must first shed the coat of who we are Not, and lay down our backpack of old pain in order to move forward to our destiny.

The key to finding out who you ARE is making mistakes in order to understand who you are NOT. If you take the action, the insight will follow. Step outside of your comfort zone a little and embrace all of your stress and grief for the strength that you are gaining from it along the way. When someone asks you to help them move and your already exhausted, simply tell them No. I have come to learn that “No” is a complete sentence and it should be used that way.

For just a moment try with all of your might to overlook the Facebook statuses, latest fashion trends, and what the people around you think. Even the Bible clearly states in the book of Romans chapter 12 “And be not conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind…”

To find who and/or what you are destined to be, you do not have to embark on a spiritual journey in the tropical rainforest or meditate daily to “ground yourself”… just pay attention to YOU, your thoughts, feelings, and judgments. Make decisions based on belief and not spur of the moment reaction. Venture out into unfamiliar territory and make notes along the way. Soon enough you will realize not only who You Are, but that you have now created your own destiny.
