Have you ever walked past the mirror and had to double back because you weren’t quite certain that the reflection was your own? You stand there looking trying to figure out when did your hair get so stringy, when did you lose so much weight and when did you age so rapidly? A better question would be “When did I lose sight of who I am?” Women are the most powerful creatures created by the higher power, women are also highly emotional by nature. No matter how tough a woman appears to be deep down there is a little girl who is as delicate as a flower. Too many times we trust and expect others to care for us as we would care for ourselves, nobody and I mean NOBODY is going to take care of you like you ( or so we think).
There are times in life where we find ourselves questioning our choices and motives, even as adults we tend to not make the best decisions. Be it our choice in a mate, a car, a job or even something as simple as what to eat for dinner some choices aren’t the right ones. There will be times we will have to suffer the consequences for our actions and choices, that’s a part of life. But it is our mistakes that make our fate, we learn from the past (at least we are supposed to). Too many times we hold on to things of the past and become complacent living in the “woulda, coulda, shouldas” and before you know it life has passed you by. It comes with age and wisdom that we realize that in order to enjoy the present you have to let go of the past. Nothing about life is going to be easy, but that doesn’t mean you have to make things harder.
“Maybe the past is like an anchor holding us back. Maybe, you have to let go of who you were to become who you will be.” ~Carrie Bradshaw
