It amazes me how much a person can take, it amazes me how much I have endured, how many steps I've taken in the right direction. This morning I woke up with such a clear mind. I love mornings like these where I get all I've been through in my head and can be so thankful for where I stand now. This is not the person that I used to be, I was not a good person. I used the pain I had in my heart to put others in the same sad place. I was angry, confused, and I made problems because I was convinced I didn't deserve to live. I didn't see it then, why I got a song in my heart. It was put there, with me having no beliefs, no stability, and knowing nothing about who I was. God put that song there and he made me write it out, he wanted to show me that I had a gift, that I wasn't alone, and that I needed to see that I was more than what I was settling for. I settled for being stuck in the past, I settled for wanting my life to end, I settled for being stuck on regrets, and I hadn't really started living. I needed God, and if you still have time to have excuses to not believe in anything, and if you still want to go in the other direction than maybe you haven't been as low as you can get? Because I couldn't take anymore of what I was getting, I needed to move in a better direction, I was stuck and I asked him to get me out of it. I was asked by a friend, "How do you believe in someone you don't know is there?" In a song, "All this time" she sings, "I hear these people asking me, how do I know what I believe? I'm not the same me and that's all the proof I need." That is exactly how I feel. I don't need any proof for me to know that God is there. I am not who I used to be. I want to include a clip from the Lion King on my next point, I no longer have a hard time putting my past behind me and knowing who I am, but I feel that this clip touches on all the important things I'm trying to say.
What do you take from this clip??? Do you know who you are?
The person that we are now isn't who we have to be, we all deserve to put that past behind us and whether you get out of it through weight loss, through God, through a career path, through anything that will make you content with who you are. Whatever it is, put those regrets and sadness and feelings of not being enough and move on. We all deserve to become a new person and with God I was able to leave who I was and am now who I want to be. I still have a few rough edges that I need to chisel out, but I'm on my way to that place and I am thankful that I am moving forward. So keep moving forward friends, on this road from weak 2 strong.
