What in the world kind of grammatical FAIL title is that? LOL! In all honesty, I was going for the whole “play on words” kind of thing, but I am not so sure about it now. I may be feeding off a little beverage my wife had last night with dinner. It was called “Jamaican Me Happy”. I have no idea why I think that’s so funny.
Anyway I wanted to talk about a topic that has been on my heart the last couple of weeks. It is something I touch on every once in while and I wanted to address it again.
It’s ALL about our experiences and our reaction to them. I want to talk about our PAST…hence the cheesy title.
More and more I am realizing that past event REALLY do happen for a reason. Not to be all cliche or anything, but each time I come to this conclusion, my mind expands. It’s like every time I study my past, it reinforces this old saying…”things happen for a reason”.
Let us take the time now to remind ourselves that the PAST has an EXTREMELY important part in our growth. Spiritually, physically, financially, relational, and educationally, the past is our foundation for how advanced we are in each category.
Okay, I am done with the ‘refresher’! I mentioned that old saying to say this…we have to have the mature ability to reflect on our past (regardless of how painful it can be at times) and use it as a TOOL!
I know it can be hard, but tapping into these experiences will allow us to become more advanced in present and future dealings. The PAST is not in place to stop you or prevent you from achieving your goals, it’s the complete opposite!
Use it to your advantage and apply the lessons as you go along. Write them down…teach them…do something positive with them, but most importantly LEARN from them.
I really DO understand that this is something you heard before, but I find that reminding myself of the basics every once in a while can keep me from making silly mistakes.
That being said, DO NOT hold a grudge on your past because it has lead you up to THIS point…and if you are reading this right now…I have GOOD NEWS! Something GREAT is about to happen in your life. I just feel it in my soul…the tables are about to turn and EVERYTHING that WAS against you, will NOW be in your favor! Supernatural BLESSINGS are coming your way. God knows what you have been experiencing and knows your struggle. Simply KEEP the faith and keep at it! You are CLOSER than you think and your dreams are about to unfold!
Go out there and use your PAST to catapult your dreams into fruition!
To Your Massive Success,
