Choices, we make them everyday. Many of the choices I made in the past were really bad and as a result have reduced the possibility of me having certain things in my life and there are some things I will never have because of the choices I made.
The problem I used to face was being stuck in the past and wanting to change the past. When I realized the past is the past and the greatest forgiveness I could give was forgiving myself, I was then able to create a different present which was not haunted by the past.
When those thoughts come to beat me up about those choices, I call on God to help me kick that mess to the curb. I am thankful today for peace that goes beyond all understanding. The Power is in The Work.
