To say it was easy to not regret things in my past would be a lie. I went through years of regret, doubt, pain, fear, unhappiness, confusion, you name it, I probably felt it. I thought that I was being punished for something and didn’t know why. I thought I wasn’t supposed to be happy and live a joyous life. I never thought I would be in this situation in my entire life but things happened and now I can say it’s okay.
Everything that’s ever happened in my life was a lesson. Failed relationships, failed friendships, single motherhood, failed careers, they all made me stronger. I know now that there is definitely a higher purpose for me, no matter what it is.
I have so many memories, good and bad, and I appreciate every one of them. God was trying to teach me lesson after lesson. I was stubborn for the most part and always tried to see the good in people, but sometimes that backfired. Today I’m a little more cautious but still learning.
I’m making lemonade from lemons, sour into sweet, bad into good, downs into ups. Bad things don’t last forever and as long as I keep the faith, good things will continue to happen.
So I wanna thank everyone who contributed to my downfalls and made me into a stronger woman. I’m able to speak my truths and be free from burden. I am forever changing and growing. I am moving towards a better future and not looking back on the past. You can’t see what’s ahead if you continue to look back……
