Don't let the dreariness of your past, overwhelm the brightness of your future.
When you think of spring, what’s the first thing that comes to mind? I’m hoping that you say something similar to “colorful,” “flowers,” “planting,” or “new life.” Some might through in taxes, unpredictable weather, etc. Those people need to follow my blogs more.
As you look at this photo, you’re probably scratching your head and trying to figure out why anyone would consider this a “good” photo. Truthfully, it’s not. There are dead leaves and vines with some weird green leaves, right? Switch your thinking. In the middle of this photo, is life blooming as its surrounded by death. This plant has been around for months, enduring variables that we cannot control- weather, animals, people's actions, etc. Even after months of neglect, it still grows.
Spring is a time to let go of whatever is holding you back. It’s a time to remind yourself that despite whatever you’ve been going through, you have the opportunity to do better. If a farmer can plant today knowing that a snowstorm or hail could take out their crops, but still have hope, then I promise you can have confidence in yourself to live the life you want. So you got off track, your plans haven’t been working, you’ve been working your butt off but still not getting anywhere. Keep GOING. Allow yourself to grow by leaving all the negativity in the past and look forward to what you could become in the future. Wake up, stay true to yourself and your goals, then go to sleep and start the process over again. I promise there is a colorful, new life waiting for you.
“Once you realize you deserve a bright future, letting go of your dark past is the best choice you will ever make.”
