Over the past few days, I've been reflecting on some decisions I made, and how my life has turned out up to this point. I've wondered if I made the right choices, and if I could have done more to change my outcome. I've wondered if I should have fought harder to keep my family together, and if there was anything I should have changed about myself sooner. While I will never know the outcome of those questions, I do know this, I intend to continue living and continue being the best ME that I can be. Whoever loves me will love me and I'm not going to try so hard to win acceptance from people who choose to walk away or choose a different path than what I'm on.
With that being said, I've learned that it's ok to take some time, and step back from the hustle and bustle of life and admit that you need help...or a good cry...every now and then. But it's not ok to wallow in self-pity, and allow yourself to become depressed over things that are beyond your control. You can not beat yourself up over the past...that's all over with. Everyday that we wake up, we are allotted a new 24 hours to reinvent ourselves. After the cares of life has torn me down, I chose to allow God to build me back up into the person I was created to be. I hope you do the same with your 24 hours.
