New Year.. New opportunities
I tell myself "Wake up!" as often my mind wants to wander among the negative experiences of the past, and to fear, or to look ahead with anxiety at the possibilities of the future.
But this does not need to be..
I know that I am more than a culmination of past mistakes.
Yes, I need to take responsibility for what I have done and not run away from them, but I can see them as moments to improve.
I can choose to see things in a positive way, and to use each experience in the same manner.
I can grow.
Our minds and bodies have been designed to meet challenges, and become stronger. Our spirit can do so also.
A tree seed can grow on the side of cliff, hanging out of that crack in the wall of rock defying gravity, and teaching us that there is no environment too harsh to stop life from continuing.
Nothing can stop a determined spirit from achieving.
