Lesson 10: Every Saint Has a Past

Sometimes I look at my life and realize I've crammed so much bullshit and shenanigans into the past 29 years it can make my head spin. There are more proud moments than I can count on my hands, but I've definitely had my fair share of cringe-worthy experiences. Of course IN the moment I had no qualms with my decision-making, but you've gotta love the way hindsight can kick you in the ass.

As I've gotten older, I've found myself having to answer for decisions I made 10 years ago, and no joke... it took a lot of work to really embrace who I was back then and not feel embarrassment or shame with choices I made.

Everyone has moments that aren't shining examples of how amazing of a person they were... but remember that everything you've been through has made you the wonderfully flawed, unique, awesome person you are today!

You can't pick and choose what happened in the past. You can't change your past. You CAN, however, take all of those experiences and roll it into amazing forward movement towards the future. Lessons will always be learned. When you know better you do better... but don't ever be ashamed of where you've come from, what you've came THROUGH ... and know that who you were back then is not who you ARE today!
