As everyone does, I’ve gone through some trials and tribulations in my life. As a kid, I thought life was perfect. It seemed immediately the day I graduated from high school that the hard times would come. As a young adult making decisions, with not a lot of practice, I made some bad ones. Like a lot of other young people I thought my parents were wrong…about well, pretty much, EVERYTHING 🤷🏼♀️
The pain and heartache that came from bad decisions is something I’ll never forget, and it is also what changed me into the person I am today. I decided then, that I would not be the person that made that same mistakes over and over. Truthfully, I think falling hard and having to pick ourselves back up, is what possibly can be the thing that can transform our life into something so good.
As much as I want to shield my kids from the pain of bad decisions, I do my best to stand back, let them feel the sting, and hope that those hard falls will be learning experiences.
Toby Mac is one of my favorite inspirational people. This is one of my favorites from the other day; it instantly touched me.
