Sorry I didnt post my last quote over the weekend! Weekends are usually a no blog time. Time spent with my daughter. So I am posting it today!
Its a little long, but its the last one SO deal with it haha.
Oh, Yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.
-Rafiki (Disney’s The Lion King)
I love anything Disney. I could have posted a million different quotes all from Disney movies. Heck, I could have chosen at least 10 quotes just from The Lion King, but I spared you. I chose only one.
This quote really speaks to me as the choice of, running from your past or learning from it, is a choice that we each have to make every single day.
Everyone has something that has happened to them that was life altering. Wether its a death in the family, abuse, drug addiction, war etc. Everyone has experienced something negative, to absolutely horrific, but you have to decide how you are going to let it affect your life in the end.
There are so many blogs that I read every day where, the authors, have chosen to learn from these life events. Learn to live with the ramifications of choices that they made, or were made for them when they were young, learned to accept the things that cannot be changed, learned to be happy and use their experience to help others. So many times I am inspired by these bloggers who LEARNED from their past and CHOSE not to let it ruin them.
Everyone has this choice, including myself. I choose every to not let my past experiences dictate how I live my life. I have learned from early on that I have to accept the things that I cannot change, and learn to do the things that I want to do a little differently but still do them. We are all the same in this way. We all have this choice. You just have to choose the right path.
