Well, today is my birthday. The big 25. A quarter of a century…
Now that I’ve been alive for 25 years, I guess I’ve learned a bit of wisdom I’d like to pass on…
If I could go back in time and tell myself something, I’d probably tell myself like to learn to like exercising and being active while young… But other than that, probably nothing else.
Because every mistake I’ve made has shaped me into who I am today. Am I proud of mistakes? Definitely not. But nor am I ashamed of them. They have shaped me, and even greater, they shaped my story, and they are a testimony to the power of God in my life. They didn’t shape me for me to talk about how I changed myself, they shaped my story as to how HE has changed me.
Don’t live life looking back with regret. But I’m also not saying “don’t look back”. It’s important to know where you’ve come from, how God has changed you, because your story is powerful.
It could literally change someone’s life.
