It’s the key ingredient in the future we build. It got us where we are. It is because of our history, experience and exposure that we are presented with the opportunities to influence the future.
Sometimes our history feels more like a hurdle than a stepping stone. It’s a dead weight we would prefer to shed and somehow never get away from. Our history forms an integral part of our story. Instead of running away from it, what if we reconciled with it?
What if we accepted and appreciated our past, no matter how painful and uncomfortable. What if we identify the values of the person we are today and hope to become tomorrow, from the history we accept and appreciate?
History is a powerful tool for influencing the future.
A reconciled past is the springboard to get is there.
