I have to say this to myself a few times a week. Yes, I know. I thought I was past all of that. But I am still surrounded by so many objects, places, and people, that trigger the past. You know, like the box of Cheeze-its in the Wal-Mart isle, (they were his favorite) The favorite restaurant we always went to, or going to Sports Authority to look at the camping gear we still wanted. Those stupid things, that trigger your brain to go back in time. I guess I could have run away like he did, but then I wouldn’t have grown and found myself.
I’m thinking I need to make a bigger change. Maybe move to another city, a different school district, new job… Staying around all of this holds me back at times. It’s scary and exciting all at the same time. I have to do my research and see what doors open. The bigger the change the more we grow. At least that is how it is supposed to work. As I have said before some of us make the big move, but we continue with the same patterns but with someone new; so it feels as if we are growing and changing, but really we are following the same patterns and addictions; they are just well disguised. Be careful as you move forward.
You don’t have to know everything. You know the One who does know—and He’ll tell you when He wants you to know. God is a powerful source in the direction my life is going. I trust he will lead me where I am to go. May he do the same for you.
Keep moving forward,
