What You Need to Know About Your Past…

What you need to know about your past is…

You are not _______ because of your past…

Fill in the blank with whatever fits… Good, Bad, Happy, Sad, Big, Little, Broke, Smart, Lazy, Strong, Weak, Better, Worse…

ALSO, You are not a _______ because your parents are!! (Fill in the blank)… Winner, Loser, Failure, or whatever you pin in that space…

You are who YOU are because of who YOU let yourself be. Who you are is not because your parents were or were not something. Who you are is not because of what did or didn’t happen in your past.

Sure those things will have some bearing on things but do not or at least should not define YOU. But make sure that you know that your past or your family does not have anything to do with YOUR FUTURE.

Good or Bad it does not matter.

What matters is what you do… Starting right NOW…

If this past year…. well almost 2 years has not taught you anything… It should have taught you that you need to learn how to take care of yourself.

The most important thing is this: When you decide and accept that YOU are the ONLY reason YOU are where you are and that YOU are the only reason that you will succeed or fail… When you get that clear… Nothing can stop YOU from reaching YOUR Goals…

It is so important that you encourage yourself and not depend on anyone else to do that. Because the fact is that it is nobody else’s job to do that. Not your mama’s your daddy’s, your spouse, your sibling, your friend, your teacher, and so on…

Oh yeah, it is great when that does happen but DO NOT DEPEND on it — PERIOD…

It is YOUR Responsibility and NO ONE ELSES! I am not trying to be hard or mean I just want to help YOU be the best YOU possible.

Even when you feel hated by the world — it is your responsibility to encourage yourself…

Practice daily on taking care of yourself. Put things in place to help you take care of your body and mind.

Educate yourself. Learn new things. Invest in yourself and allow yourself to get rest.

Do Not Put This On Hold… Do not put this off any longer. Do this NOW…

Get up, daily, asking yourself what you should be doing to make yourself better.

It’s possible to start off strong then it crumbles but know that it is ok… Take 5 minutes to pout, cry, cuss, or whatever you need to do to gather yourself and get right back to taking responsibility for YOU. Simply START OVER as many times as you need to.

That is the beauty of this way of life… Have Faith!!!

Don’t grow cold. Staying still will let you do that so keep moving towards your goal. Dig for your inner faith and don’t look back or forward… Just Step DAILY…

Don’t let yourself down — Don’t let yourself go.

Dig Deep — Have faith and know that you are worth the effort and work… Know that God has given you all you need to be the very best person YOU can be.

The Race is on… (Like a chicken bone!! like my sister always says) LOL.

You Got This.

Here to help YOU Succeed,
