Okay people, I am going to start something new here. I’ve been blogging for sometime now. On the average I write here 4-5 times a week. It just depends on my level of creativity I guess (and time constraints). I think from this point forward, I will make Wednesdays…Rewind Wednesday’s. I used to blog on another site, but once I was introduced to WordPress…I politely did that peoowwww, and transitioned here.
RW’s will consist of a post I made once before and compare it to where I am now…..just to see check the curve…how is the maturation process…please feel free to comment…let me know (and I’m straight forward, I’m not a politically correct type of dude) if I’m talking about some garbage….say whatever. I will also expand on the original post too….with that being said (drum roll please) here is the first Rewind Wednesday post…..(applause)
Change is something that is a natural maturation. We change all the time. We change clothes, we change residence, we change occupations….heck we change our minds numerous time each day. Change is defined as: to advance or progress.
If change is something that happens thousands and thousands of times each day…why can’t people accept it. Why can’t folks change with the times. Folks all to often rely or revel over the past while the present and the future is staring right at you.
God has so much in store for His children, but the problem is we can’t believe that people or situations change. We can’t MOVE ON. We are stuck in a time warp like Austin Powers. I’ve never seen a person win a race while looking backwards. Let the past be the past….Move on and walk into your blessing!
Some might say that you must know the past in order to know where you are going. I’ve made this argument before. Yet, there is a difference with glancing and making observations….opposed to staring and passing judgement. More people need to practice LIG (let it go). Focusing on the past will make you stagnant. If he hurt you…let it go. If she done you wrong….let it go. If you were wronged….let it go. Live life to the fullest. Let LIG be the motto….
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that frightens us most. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and famous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that people won’t feel insecure around you. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in all of us. And when we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”- Nelson Mandela (Maryanne Williamson)
