As a child, I was excited about life and all it had to offer; but somewhere along the way, my view of life changed. The excitement that I once had was gone. What happened to all of my hopes and dreams? What happened to my zeal for life? How did my heart become so heavy? Why has life placed all of these obstacles before me? What happened to ME?
When you were growing up, I’m sure you had dreams too. As things happened in your life, you probably found yourself asking those same questions. Sometimes we let all of the negative experiences that occur in our lives to overtake us. We often believe that our past defines us. We allow others to dictate to us who we are supposed to be and we never take the time to really discover who we really are or what we really want to be. We fail to understand that we should use our past experiences to propel us to a brighter future.
Do you have a dream that has gone unfulfilled? If so, what is keeping you from pursuing your dream? Is your past holding you back? If so, what will it take for you to stop looking back and begin to look forward?
As women, we can no longer sit idly by and continue to live unfulfilled lives. It’s time to let go of the past and start life anew. You can do anything you want to do. The only person holding you back is you.
Ladies, don’t you think it’s time you start living life FREE (Forgiven, Renewed, Encouraged, and Empowered)? Let’s talk about it.
