Don’t let the past define you

Solana and Sienna,

Inevitably you will make mistakes – things you regret. But you need to learn to love yourself and forgive yourself, as well as others. Always keep love at the forefront of your decisions.

Here’s a lesson on this from something I read:

“You ruin your life by letting your past govern it. It is common for certain things in life to happen to you. There will be heartbreak, confusion, days where you feel like you aren’t special or purposeful. There are moments that will stay with you, words that will stick. You cannot let these define you – they were simply moments, they were simply words. If you allow for every negative event in your life to outline how you view yourself, you will view the world around you negatively.

“If you don’t allow yourself to move past what happened, what was said, what was felt, you will look at your future with that lens, and nothing will be able to breach that judgment. You will keep on justifying, reliving, and fueling a perception that shouldn’t have existed in the first place.”

The bottom line here is, you are what you believe. The self-fulfilling prophecy is more than just a notion. So love yourself; forgive yourself; love and laugh often.

Ustedes son my vida!
