Audio Version of Every Day Hope Message:
Remember the past as the tide that brought you to this new life.
You no longer rely on your past to identify you. You no longer live there and you never have to relive it. It is something you never have to go back to.
Although the past is gone, your experiences and trials brought you to this place. Examine your past with a new set of eyes and a fresh perspective. Tell your unique story from a place where the pain no longer dominates or speaks for you.
See the past for what it is: the ticket to your present freedom and the gateway to your positive legacy. Don’t reject or hide from it. Embrace who you are -every part of who you are- and move forward.
Just as the deepest currents in the middle of the ocean have no visible influence on the appearance of the water at the surface, the pain of your past doesn’t control or define you. It contributes to your landscape, yes, but it isn’t who you are.
You were innocent before you started feeling guilty. Reclaim that childlike innocence and have faith in a better tomorrow.
