One of the best things we can do in our lives is this:
Begin to see yourself as you were
When you were the happiest and strongest you’ve ever been.
Begin to remember what worked for you
(and what worked against you),
And try to capture the magic again.
Begin to remember how natural it was when you were a child —
To live a lifetime each day.
Begin to forget the baggage you have carried with you
The problems that don’t matter anymore,
The tears that cried themselves away,
And the worries that are going to wash away
On the shore of tomorrow’s new beginnings.
Tomorrow tells us it will be here every new day of our lives;
And if we will be wise,
We will turn away from the problems of the past
And give the future — and ourselves — a chance
To become the best of friends.
Sometimes all it takes is a wish in the heart to let yourself ..
And let us not to forget, in forgetting the past to encourage yourself in Someone bigger than us, bigger than our problems and bigger than our past failures. God! He was there encouraging us in the right direction the whole time. But we learned and we survived Praise God, now let’s walk in the direction He is going, and we will succeed. ……Begin..; again.
And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his God.
