Today for Wishcasting Wednesday, Jamie asks us:
"What of your history do you wish to remember?"
Like most everyone, there is much, too much, of my history that I would like to forget. That I try to forget. That I would like to never think about again. That I would prefer to have never even happened at all. That I struggle every single day to not allow to affect my present life in a negative way.
But truthfully, as hard as it is to admit...
I wish to remember how my history of hard times, challenges, struggles, sorrows, disappointments, abuse, fear...how all of the bad things and times...ALONG WITH the good times...
Made me who I am. Helped shaped my inner being. Created the person I was meant to be. Gave me strength, perspective, and experience.
I would not be who I am, where I am, if not for my history, both the good AND the bad.
This is the absolute truth for us all. I realize that this truth can "go either way" for any given person.
I wish to remember that my history is meant to make me the best possible version of myself.
Regardless and due to.
Happy Me-Laurie Z
