The beginning that we can't change often trips us up. We can't help how we were raised, what others have said to us, or even escape the consequences of our own poor decisions, but we can write the ending any way we choose!
I grew up in poverty and because of that I started my adult life in debt. Student loans, credit cards, living pay check to pay check.
I was 29, married, with a $50,000 equity loan debt on a house I owned with my mom. We took out the loan so both us could get through school with 4 of my siblings still at home. Every moment I was doing the best I could to serve me family and the best I could do to get by. I was trying to make progress and it always felt like I was spinning my wheels.
My hubby and I signed up for a financial class and I was full of dread. I didn't want to show anyone my mess. I didn't even want to look at it myself but that class changed everything. In 2 years we had that debt paid off and 3 years later we were completely debt free. I rewrote the ending to that chapter and it's given me the courage to keep tackling issues in my life.
Forgive the past, whether it's others or yourself you have to forgive band then show up for yourself. Show up weak, show up scared, but show up and change the ending to one that redeems the pain.
The mess doesn't define who you are, you do.
