“Reflecting on who you are today and why, opens up the possibilities of who you can be tomorrow.”-Becky Zahrte (Oh wait that’s me…LOL!!)
I loved this thought when it came to me, and I still love it. Please feel free to share it.
This week has been a week of reflection for me. Sometimes I reflect in a negative way, blaming myself for all my ills in life, but not this time, not today. Today I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that I have been blessed beyond measure, and this is where my focus has been.
I was given the opportunity this week to do something that I knew I was called to do from my youth. However, under the circumstances of my childhood this could not have been possible. But God being God does what He does best. He led me on a path.
Now this path has not been straight by any means. There have been more hills than I care to think about, and some of those valleys were mighty deep. I didn’t always understand why I was walking there, I wasn’t always sure I was going to make it up the next hill…..you know this is why I should lose weight. 🙂 Irregardless, I made it! I made it to today.
Please don’t misunderstand me, my life is far, far, far away from being perfect. I am still in a valley at this moment, but I feel like I am on a hilltop. I feel like I finally understand why.
Like any of us, I have a story. A story filled with despair and depression. A story filled with love and excitement. A story of betrayal and hurt, but also of redemption and forgiveness….It would make a great Lifetime special. 😉
But today, I am reflecting on all the amazingly good things in my life. It’s not perfect but it is mine. Mine to learn from and mine to share. I thank God for all that I am and all that He has planned for me to be. Many blessings!
