Don't let the past define you. Everyone of us has the ability to do something today that we did not do yesterday. Just because we may have grown up with poor self esteem dosen't mean we have to have it today. Because we grew up with dysfunctional parents or siblings, doesn't mean we can't rise above it and become someone great. No matter how bad our past may have been, today is a NEW day. We can be happy in that if nothing else. Because we blew our goals or didn't achieve something great in the past says nothing about what our future can be. If we surround ourselves with people who tell us we can do it and that we are people of worth, we will begin to believe it in time. Be careful what thoughts you allow your mind to entertain. Do what you have to, not neccessarily what someone else may have done. Dare to be different, others will someday thank you for it. We, and only we, limit our own selves and what we can achieve. Tomorrow's dreams begin today. Let us each dare not to be confined with the can'ts of yesterday. Let us define tomorrow by the dreams we have allowed to remain hidden for too long. Our weakness of the past can become our greatest strength today. Our greatest pain can be trasformed into to our shining glory. Rise up and quit living with the dead.
