The Future is Spotless

Just read this: “No matter how spoiled the past may have been, our future is spotless.”

I can’t even begin to explain how much this means to me. I have struggled with shame, guilt and depression about my past– all that wasted time– so many opportunities lost– so much pain–

This blog is a huge part of letting go of the past. Looking at it with a new perspective. The perspective that it no longer has the power to blot out the possibilities of the future. To view the past with lessons learned, levity, and wisdom- not guilt, shame or pain.

Perspective is powerful- yet so limited.

To have the perspective that every day is new- that the future is in fact spotless and that I deserve to have peace, love and hope, as does every child of God.

The memories I write here are no longer hidden in shame, rather they are a part of me that shows the strength, courage, and love of a family, and how those entities are more powerful in the end.

Life will never be easy, or exactly as I would want it, I am learning every day that accepting what is and focusing on the here and now is what keeps me smiling and striving to be better than I was yesterday.

Let’s live this life well.
